White Stallion Ranch
Activities & Events
Horse Riding Program
White Stallion Ranch’s horse riding program is second to none. With a large herd of over 165 very well trained horses, there is a horse for every age and riding ability. Each guest is carefully matched with a specific horse, based on their experience, height, weight, and riding ambitions. Guests normally keep the same horse for the entirety of the stay to build a bond with the steed.
There is a complete range of rides that will suit any guest, from a complete novice who never sat on a horse, to an expert who is comfortable riding all day. Available rides include: Scenic Rides, Fast (Cantering) Rides, Mountain Rides, Breakfast Rides, Half-Day Rides, All-Day Rides, Specialty Rides (Wine & Cheese or Beer & Cheetos), and the guest favorite Team Cattle Penning. Wranglers are available for riding lessons, six days a week, for a supplemental charge.
Guided hikes are available five days a week, with a variety of trails for beginner to experienced hikers. Hike through the nearby mountains of the ranch or get transported to the adjacent Saguaro National Park to explore Native American petroglyph sites. All hikes award fantastic access to and views of the Sonoran Desert. Guides are friendly and knowledgeable about the local history, geography, and biology.
Mountain bikers may use the trail and road system as long as they are respectful of the riding program. Rentals can be arranged.
Rock climbing is offered with a very patient, encouraging, and highly experienced rock climbing instructor. Offering climbs for beginner to experience climbers, the instructor is available up to six days a week at set times, for a supplemental charge.
