Horseback Riding
In Tucson & Southern Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz. - Horseback riding is as much a part of the American West as sunsets and saguaros. In Tucson and Southern Arizona, visitors can saddle up at a guest ranch, resort hotel, or public stable. Horsemanship lessons and wrangler-guided trips (perhaps with trailside breakfast or picnic lunch) can be tailored for riders of all skill levels. Sunrise, sunset, and moonlight rides provide romantic glimpses of the Sonoran Desert landscape. Whether you hit the trail for a full day or a brief jaunt, horseback riding is an authentic way to explore Tucson's Old West heritage. It is important to call ahead before venturing out as most facilities require reservations.
