At White Stallion Ranch you find 3,000 acres of wide-open land at the foot of the Tucson Mountains. Miles of scenic horseback riding and hiking trails offer guests the opportunity to explore the unique Sonoran desert. White Stallion Ranch is ideal for families and groups looking for fun riding because they cater for all abilities.
Riding from the ranch is out in the Sonoran desert and the surrounding mountains. Although secluded and surrounded by the natural desert, White Stallion is only 40 minutes from Tucson.
There are many other activities available for when you do not wish to ride. These include rock climbing, shooting, e-bikes, craft classes, tennis, volleyball, basketball, badminton or paddle tennis on the versatile Sport Court; fitness centre and sauna; and a heated pool and indoor hot tub.
Several different guided hikes are offered each week. From an easy, informative, nature-walk to a more challenging climb to the top of Panther Peak in the Saguaro National Park. The spa offers massages and body treatments (at extra cost) and for an additional fee, championship golf is available nearby in Tucson.
White Stallion Ranch is suitable for all level of riders and the ranch has a herd of well-trained horses. The tack is Western.
Riding is offered six days of the week (there is no riding on Sundays): mountain rides, slow walking rides, faster loping rides and all day rides, adult only cheese and wine rides, as well as informal instruction periods (extra cost).
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, mountain rides and all day rides. Weekly rodeos, team penning, team sorting and hayrides are also part of the programme.
There are 41 authentically decorated en-suite rooms at White Stallion, which are fully air-conditioned. Some suites have fireplaces and Jacuzzi bath tubs. Every room has a private patio and views of the cactus gardens or mountains.
Open all year. Arrive/depart any day and stay as long as you wish (minimum three nights). There is no horseback riding on Sundays so this would be the best day to arrive or depart if you don't wish to miss anything.

High season is the warm, dry months of winter (November to March) when average maximum daily temperature ranges range from around 18°C to 25°C. Even in summer, the low humidity means that hot days are more comfortable than other places with similar temperatures. In mid summer (June to September), the average maximum daily temperatures are around the mid 30°C to early 40°C.
Fantastic holiday. White Stallion Ranch is the gold standard by which we judge our other holidays now!
Beth, LondonOverall rating: 5/5
A wonderful winter getaway destination and combines really well with a vist to Las Vegas and a drive through the Grand Canyon.
