Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding

See Tucson from the Saddle

When it comes to the Southwest, there's a bunch that Hollywood gets right, including the horse culture. Horseback riding is as much a part of Tucson and Southern Arizona as cactus, Wildcat basketball, and sweet, salty, transcendent margaritas.

Saddle up at a guest ranch, a resort, one of our public stables, or one of several private stables that specialize in horseback riding. Never ridden before? Not a problem. Riding lessons and wrangler-guided trips with trailside meals are available for folks of all skill levels, and special sunrise, sunset, and moonlight rides make memories to last a lifetime.

Whether you choose a half-day solo jaunt or longer group ride, you can't beat seeing the Sonoran desert by horseback to open your heart and mind to the American West.
