Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is as much a part of the American West as sunsets and saguaros. In Tucson and Southern Arizona you can saddle up at a guest ranch, resort, public stable, or a specific horseback riding business. Horsemanship lessons and wrangler-guided trips (with trailside breakfast or picnic lunch) are available for both individuals and groups of all skill levels. Specialty rides, such as sunrise, sunset, and moonlight rides, are especially delightful. Whether you choose a half-day jaunt, a longer trail ride, a group or solo journey, riding horseback is the real Western way to explore the Tucson landscape.
