Unforgettable Horseback Riding Vacation in Arizona

Experience the Desert on Horseback

Horses and horseback riding have been an integral part of life here at Rancho de los Caballeros from the very beginning.  We hope that you will have time during your stay to enjoy a trail ride with one of our wranglers, or at least spend some enjoying the horses and their majestic beauty from the ground.  

Outlined below are some of our horse activities here at the ranch.  If none of these fit your schedule, please feel free to come down and spend a little time on the porch at the corral “talking horses”!  

Daily Horse Run

Each day around 8:00am and 4:30pm, our herd travels along the western trail of our property to-and-from their evening pasture area.  Guests are welcome to watch and take photos of the horses during their trip!

Regular Horseback Rides

Regular horseback rides are available 7 days a week.  The morning ride departs from the corral at 10am and lasts 2 hours ($65).  The afternoon ride commences at 2:30pm, Monday through Saturday, and is 1 ½ hours ($55). 

Horse selection and rides are tailored to the ability level of each rider and can range from walking rides to loping rides for advanced participants.

Nature Rides

Join our resident naturalist for a nature-focused ride through the beautiful desert landscapes.  The Nature Ride departs the corral at 9:30am on Mondays and Fridays.  Call or check our calendar for the schedule this season.  The cost for the two hour ride is $65.

Team Penning

This thrilling team activity is perfect for families or team building events.  Riders in groups of three to five work together to separate steers and drive them into a pen at the other end of the arena.  Wranglers provide coaching for the timed event, plus ribbon prizes for the winners!
