  • Once in a lifetime ...

    by 783maries on 2020-03-17 02:07 am

    Booked as a bucket list trip with my father, both of us have always wanted to ride in the desert like they do in the films and finally achieved the dream in Feb 2020. Dad had never been to the States or done long haul, so it was a holiday of firsts for both of us!
    From the get go, we were so impressed, everything was incredible. The food - wow. The people - wonderful. The horses - gorgeous. The facilities - amazing. The organisation, getting lots of people on and off horses at multiple times - top notch. My father hadn't ridden for 10 years+ and from the first ride looked like he did it everyday! Riding through incredible scenery, with like-minded folk. Enjoying the sunshine, the occasional storm (yes the hail!), talking to people from all over the world.
    Shout out to Steve who took us to the shooting range the first time, we enjoyed it so much - there was only Dad and I signed up! I have never shot a gun in my life, and over the week I got dubbed "Annie Oakley" - I think I found my skill :) Also to George who did the black powder guns with us, your Dad is the MAN!!
    Unfortunately, 2 days before we were due to come home I was bucked off on a fast ride. I wont say fall off because I didn't. I had ridden then same horse for the duration of the week, done a lope test and its just one of those things and I fully accept that it happens when riding horses (I have ridden since I was 6 years old). However, the reason I simply cant give a 5 star review is because of how the aftermath was dealt with. The wranglers on the ride didn't seem to know what to do with me, a man who was on the ride and was behind me in the line up was the one who asked me the concussion questions. I came off in the desert, they couldn't get the truck to me (again, I appreciate this would be difficult), so I had to walk on a potentially broken ankle to get the truck. I got asked if I wanted to go to hospital, it was never insisted that we go to make sure I was OK, that they were taking me no questions asked, and also to cover themselves (I would have thought this is required?). I was in shock, I didn't know if I needed medical assistance or not to be honest and even though everyone looked after me (bought me ice, told me to go in the hot tub), I feel that the whole incident wasn't taken as seriously as it could have been. I never saw my horse again after that, even though I looked for him as I wanted to say goodbye. I wrote a detailed account of the incident and aftermath once home (I recorded the entire ride on my action camera which helped prompt my memory), and once I could process what happened, sent it to WSR to ask what precautions they would put in place going forward to assure everyone's safety, thinking "I cant be the only person to be bucked off?" For 2 weeks I received no reply, no acknowledgement to my (friendly) email. The reply I got was a standard two liner as follows: "Dear Maria, (they got my name wrong) We received your e-mail and are very sorry that you are still feeling badly from your fall. All of us sincerely wish you a speedy and complete recovery. The True Family". None of my questions answered but there we go, I guess. On reflection, to say I am disappointed is an understatement and the whole experience has really taken the shine off what was otherwise a once in a lifetime experience.

  • Horseback Riding

    We were visiting my family for a week and I hadn't ridden in a very long time and wanted to go. It was located right around the corner from where we were staying. Although I called White Stallion Ranch, they only offered rides for guests. But they share the land with another group that offers rides on the same land. So we went, and it was so amazing! We went an hour and a half which was perfect. We took some trails and our guide was very knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful! The horses were all very well mannered and we had a wonderful time! We will definitely be going back on our next visit.

  • Excellent again

    Returned to the Ranch for the 4th time. Once again not disappointed. Not only horseback riding but new activities added-e-biking , shooting, archery. Friendly, helpful staff. Food is always good, with good variety. Vegan options as well. Can't wait to go back!!

  • Really Wonderful Experience!

    We were a group of two couples celebrating my spouse's birthday and decided to try out White Stallion based on the numerous amazing reviews. We were checked-in early and given a tour by Sarah who was wonderful throughout our stay. The rooms were well-appointed and backed up onto an area where you could see horses right out your window; this was fantastic. We really enjoyed all of the activities offered from riding to shooting to the pool/hot tub, we soaked it all in for the two days we were there. Their bar and cocktail hour was great and their food overall was really homey and well-made and delicious! It is a dude ranch and while it is upscale, there are definitely some amenities that they are lacking (i.e. pool towels in the pool area, timely housekeeping, iron in rooms, etc.) I expected this so we came fairly prepared. We truly enjoyed our experience and would 100% return.

  • Great holiday weekend

    This dude ranch is amazing. First off the casitas are nicely appointed and large. I like the outdoor fireplace on the front patio. The food is all homemade. The pancakes are amazing, the lunches to dinners are amazing. Like having cold drinks available during the day. It's a family owned ranch of 3000 acres in the Sonoran desert. I like the honor system of the beer and wine. I did the slow ride horseback riding, archery, 22 caliber shooting, EBike riding, nature walk and massage. They have all inclusive if you stay 4 nights. We did 2 nights so riding was included other activities you paid extra for. My friends want to next time. A great experience l.
