What You'll Get


Horses boast many advantages over cars: cheaper fuel, better off-roading capability, and much easier to breed. Choose the clear winner with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $27 for a guided 90-minute horseback trail ride for one (a $55 value)
  • $52 for a guided 90-minute horseback trail ride for two (a $110 value)
  • $99 for a guided 90-minute horseback trail ride for four (a $220 value)

Following basic horse-riding training, guides lead groups of up to 12 riders on a 90-minute ride along the banks of the Verde River and through its waters to the far bank.

Fort McDowell Adventures

Though glimpsed by many people for the first time on an episode of The Amazing Race, the desert acres traversed by Fort McDowell Adventures are steeped in millennia of Yavapai Indian history. Guides lead visitors across the Arizonan foothills on a range of outdoorsy and sometimes anachronistic adventures, such as cattle drives and Segway tours through the Sonoran desert, kayaking adventures on the Verde River, and nature walks with Yavapai Indians. These excursions often end in nighttime wiener roasts, s'mores, and cocktails, a break from the frontier tradition of telling campfire sci-fi stories.

Activities at Fort McDowell Adventures’s four venues further immerse guests in the American Western experience. They gather for Dutch oven–style cowboy cookouts and depart for wilderness excursions from The Stables. At La Puesta del Sol, guests pass through a Spanish mission entrance into a dining hall, saloon, stage, and dance floor, and at Rosa's Ranch, they gather under the stars and around cookout fire pits nestled between rustic wooden ranch buildings. Groups dine at The Boulder House, named on the National Registry of Historic Places, whose rock walls bear evidence of petroglyphs, Native American occupation, and ancient spelunking expeditions.
