Choose from Three Options

  • $37.50 for a two-hour guided horseback ride for one (a $75 value)
  • $69.50 for a two-hour guided horseback ride for two (a $150 value)
  • $135 for a two-hour guided horseback ride for four (a $300 value)

Riders can choose from three different trails. Guides at Hitchin' Post Stables in Flagstaff lead riders into the Coconino Forest, where they pass by scenic cliffs and canyons. At Pioneer Village Stables near Phoenix, groups explore a historic 19th-century town and enjoy free admission to the Pioneer Living Museum before heading out into a cacti-filled desert. The trails at Pot A Gold Stables in Mayer, meanwhile, wind past rock outcroppings, historic windmills, and working cattle ranches.

Windmill Ranch

Beneath a canopy of blue sky, Windmill Ranch offers fun activities for the entire family. The main draw here are the guided horseback rides, which wind through a 10,000-acre pinewood forest, and offer chances to spot wildlife such as elk, porcupines, and bobcats. Noticeably absent: cars, which aren't allowed in the area, giving riders a unique chance to revel in the peacefulness of nature. Come Autumn, the ranch welcomes guests for fall activities, including a pumpkin patch and hay rides, while winter brings an opportunity to ride through the snowy forest in a real horse-drawn sleigh.
