Tombstone Monument Ranch is located two and a half miles from the centre of Tombstone. Tombstone is known as the town ‘Too Tough To Die’ after the 1942 Western film starring Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday .

It is surrounded by miles of open country with views of the Dragoon Mountains.

Each day you will ride out from the ranch into what was once known as the ‘Wild West’. There are several different rides available every day as well as more formal Western lessons.

As well as riding the ranch also offers; hiking, shooting, archery and trips into Tombstone, making it a great experience for non-riders.

 

 

Tombstone is suitable for all levels of rider and the ranch has a large herd of horses. Riding is offered seven days a week and the tack is Western.

Children aged five years and over are welcome on the slower rides, whilst children aged eight years and over may qualify for the fast rides, local history rides and all day rides. Team penning and lessons are also part of the programme.

The slower, more scenic rides explore the Tombstone hills. These cover a variety of terrain including sandy  tracks, abandoned railroad areas and places once minced for silver.

Faster rides offer a more challenging adventure. With jogging and loping through the high desert terrain, this gives the more experienced a chance to really ride their horses.

The half day ride takes you into view of the Huachuca Mountains. This ride offers the chance to spot prospectors monuments and abandoned mines.

An all-day ride to the ghost town of Fairbank is sure to leave you walking like John Wayne. Fairbank is situated next to the San Pedro River and was the closest rail stop to Tombstone and was originally settled in 1881.

Speciality rides are a great way of exploring the area in more detail. The Beer and Cheetos; Tequila Taster and History rides are not to be missed.

 

The ranch was built to resemble an 1880’s Main Street with dirt roads and boardwalks.

There are 18 spacious guest rooms that are individually decorated in turn-of-the-century style. Each one is unique and you may find yourself waking up in the Mining Office, Miss Kitty’s Bordello, or the Blacksmith’s Shop.

There are four different rooms types; Standard, Deluxe, Junior Suites and Premium Suites.

The Standard rooms consist of two queen beds, en-suite with a shower and a view onto the 'main street'.

Deluxe rooms either have two queen beds or one king bed, en-suite with a shower and private terrace.

Junior Suites have a king bed in one room and a queen in a separate living area, en-suite with shower and view into the main street.

Premium Suites have a king bed in one room and a queen in a separate living area & kitchenette, en-suite with shower & bath and a private terrace.

Ride Report

Rebecca Clarke
Rebecca Clarke
Tombstone Monument was the second ranch on my visit to Arizona. Completely different to the others, Tombstone is build like an old western town which I thought looked amazing. The ranch has eighteen rooms for guests but would usually on have a maximum riding group of nine. The wranglers are a lot of fun and offer various rides out across the desert as well as lessons and team penning.

Rebecca says

The set up is just fantastic! The rooms are beautiful and you must try and go on the history ride.

My Top Tip

The perfect destination for a winter getaway - and it combines brilliantly with White Stallion Ranch or a visit to the Grand Canyon.
