Horseback Rides

Why ride with us? If you are a beginner, small child, or have never ridden before in your life, we have the perfect desert tour for you! Our terrain is very easy to ride through, with the occasional hill, numerous desert plants, and gorgeous scenery to feast your eyes on. We take the time before you depart to teach you the basics of riding. On your tour your guide will educate you on the desert flora, wildlife, and our history. If a relaxing experience is what you are looking for then a group horseback ride is for you! Or see the desert in a whole new light, literally! Our unique moonlight horseback rides are offered days before the night of the full moon. See the sunset rays and luminescent light of the moon glimmer on the skin and needles of the cacti. Great for couples, families, friends, and co-workers! Intermediate or experienced riders: we suggest booking a private horseback ride for a faster paced experience. Please note: your wrangler will only let you ride based on what your abilities and previous experience allow - for your safety and the safety of your horse. Not all private rides will be a “fast” pace. Please, No dogs or other pets at the Ranch
