We have morning daily guided trail rides Monday-Friday. The rides are divided into three Groups: Beginning, Teen, and Adult. These rides are 2 – 2 1/2 hours and are separated into groups.
There is also an afternoon trail ride that is 1 1/2 – 2 hours and everyone is invited.
Our head wrangler will select one of our seasoned trail horses for you based on your horseback riding ability and past experience. You will be asked to sign a release form at the beginning of your stay and will be asked about your riding ability. Please be honest on your ability. When we make a good match, you’re experience is much more satisfying and you get to stay with “your” horse for the duration of your stay. ALL of our horseback rides are guided for the safety of the rider and horse.
Typically there are two rides a day- morning and afternoon. Our scenic trail rides take you through some of the prettiest country in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest. You will ride through grassy meadows, pine and aspen covered mountains, and meandering streams. Wildlife is abundant to the delight of all our guests. Once a week there will be an evening ride offered for those who want to ride off into the setting sun!
If you are a beginner there is no need to worry, our experienced wranglers will take good care of you. You will be matched to a horse that is just right for your abilities and when you leave, you’ll be on your way to becoming an experienced rider!
Personal arena/meadow rides are offered throughout the week for personalized instruction at an additional fee.
Riders must be at least 6 years old. Pony leads are available for cowboys and cowgirls 3-5 years in our children’s program.
Automotive guided tour of the historically rich nearby picturesque sites.
Leather craft lessons. You can even make your own belt!
