People should learn how to ride a horse now because there's no telling when the horses will eat all of our cars. Pick up a new skill before it's too late with this Groupon.

Choose from Three Options

  • $35 for a two-hour horseback trail ride for one (up to a $70 value)
  • $65 for a two-hour horseback trail ride for two (up to a $140 value)
  • $126 for a two-hour horseback trail ride for four (up to a $280 value)

Guides help riders pick a horse suited to their experience level before setting out down trails with wide views of saguaros, desert wildlife, the McDowell Mountains, and Camelback Mountain. Beginners learn the basics of horsemanship before starting their journey. Intermediate and more experienced riders can make use of the wranglers’ knowledge to enhance their riding skills, learn about the Sonoran Desert, and explore the history of the west. One 5-year-old can join each group of seven and will get to ride on his or her own horse behind the tour guide.

MacDonald's Ranch

There's something timeless about MacDonald's Ranch. Maybe it's that visitors can take a guided horseback ride through the desert, pose for an old-time photo, or ride a stagecoach—which in certain cases, might be held up by actors dressed as outlaws. But whatever the reason guests dock their zeppelin at MacDonald's Ranch, the staff hopes to treat them to a fun ranch experience. They surround them with music, cowboy shows, and seasonal attractions such as the annual pumpkin festival.

MacDonald's Ranch covers 1,300 acres of the scenic Sonoran Desert. Whether on horseback, train, or a hayride, guests can explore the area and view its desert flora, hawks, petrified spurs, and coyotes.

Customer Reviews

Great people, wonderful day. Make sure to wear long sleeve white blouse or shirt, jeans, sturdy shoes or sneakers. Bring lots of water. We knew to bring the equivalent of 3, 20 oz bottles since we live here. Visitors may not know to do this. We had a great time and will be going back for 1 hour rides for medical reasons. The staff was wonderful! Great value.
