  • Wonderful Experience

    Wonderful Experience

    My husband surprised me as a Christmas gift to fulfill my bucket list of trying a Dude Ranch. We had the time of our lives. We learned so much, laughed a ton, and met life-long friends for the short 4 days we were there. We already made reservations for same time next year and also planning another trip in the fall to bring back the rest of our family so they can enjoy this wonderful place too. You can't find a better place to get away from all what's currently going on in the country, turn the TV and social media off, and get back to nature and feeling free again. We recommend this place to all!

    My family (wife, 2 -17 yr old girls, 12 yr old son) and I spent a couple days down at White Stallion Ranch. I was looking for a different experience, outdoors and relaxing. I haven't spent time at a ranch before - and I was completely impressed with what we experienced. We did a "getaway" package and only had a couple days. But, the horseback riding was great, the feeding of free treats to them was better :) We did the e-bikes and rock climbing. The kids enjoyed the pool and mom/I enjoyed our strolls, complete with hanging out at the outdoor patio with a cocktail.

    I'd absolutely would go again - and stay a couple days more :)

    We brought our kids here ages 16, 13, and 6 as a surprise getaway. We all loved every minute of it! The activities were great and we enjoyed hanging out around the ranch. The rooms were well set up for families and there was a range of activities to appeal to all ages and interests. We would definitely do this trip again!
    I had a few ideas for improvements but I can't remember them now. Nothing major that would prevent me from returning to the ranch.

    I have been coming to this ranch for about 10 years. I'm an experienced rider and have visited many other ranches but I keep coming back. The staff and activities are the best. I've always enjoyed the usual riding opportunities but this year I took advantage of a new, Hawk Walk falconry event on the ranch property. The folks at Sky Island Falconry Experience come to the ranch and allow you to get up close and personal (really) with, in my case a, Harris Hawk named Norman. Nate the instructor was excellent as he gave such rich information on the sport of falconry. I actually got Norman to swoop down and feed from my gloved hand several times as we hiked through the desert. It was fascinating to see Norman following us, flying from cactus to trees as he searched for prey.
    The other activity I never miss is The Critter Show after dinner. Phil Garcia is a hoot! So entertaining along with Hector his assistant. Don't miss it. The audience reaction to the creatures is a show in itself.
    Finally a shout out to my friends Jodi at the front desk, Cheryl in the gift shop Steven and Russell True. You always make me feel welcome.

  • Soo many activities, and great for beginning riders.  Beautiful desert location!

    Myself and two sons (24, 26 had only ridden a few trail rides before) had an awesome time staying for 4 nights. We lucked out and the occupancy was very low, so all activities we easy to sign up for. We arrived a little before 1pm and we were on horses riding through the desert by 2! We took some riding lessons, which are very affordable and helped us get to know our horses better. Wranglers Johnny and Shania were awesome, they helped us with trotting and even did some loping in the arena. Even as a beginner I could do the cattle sorting which was very cool!

    The E-bikes were very fun. I do a lot of mountain biking and was not expecting to like the e-bikes, but with the sandy terrain the electric assist was really nice and made it much more fun. The ranch was able to accommodate us with a more advanced ride since we handled the intermediate ride pretty well. The rock climbing instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful, he picked some challenging climbs for us and we all learned a lot and left with rubber arms.

    The shooting and archery with Louie were fun as well, The bows were serviceable recurves of various weights as you would expect at a resort, but good arrows, fun time. The 45 shoot seemed a little pricey to me (x3 for my boys), but was definitely worth it and with the cost and availability of ammunition these days, it is really a good deal.

    The food was great at every meal. Some were made to order, some buffets style.
    All very good. I was concerned about taking a trip like this in with COVID, but the staff and guests were all very good about masking anytime we were close and 100% indoors. We mostly ate outside except in the mornings when it was too chilly.

    The staff and the family were all super friendly and accommodating. It is clearly a family run affair and the family has been doing this a long time and have it down to science. Steven (owners son) sat his horse in front of our small crowd of about 15 guests for the Rodeo (which is basically the ranch family and friends practicing for rodeos). He is a funny guy and really explained what was going on and how the events worked, etc. Great time. All the shows were good. Loop Rawlins gun spinning, roping and whip show was amazing.

    So every day we ate, rode usually twice, did something else like e-bike, shoot or climb, hike in the dessert, then a few beers, a show, play some cards in the room, go to bed and do it again the next day. Great time with my boys we will not forget!
