White Stallion Ranch Arizona

10 days from £1899 per person

At the White Stallion dude ranch, you will find the perfect balance of a fine resort, exceptional hospitality, family traditions and wild west charm. One of the most popular ranches in Arizona, and for good reason, the informal Spanish-style ranch is set amidst 3,000 acres of unspoiled desert and breath-taking mountain peaks; a wonderful setting for riders of all levels and abilities. You will be invited to join in as many rides as you wish, varying from trails across flat desert plains to high up in the Rocky Mountains, loping and cantering through cacti and even beer & Cheetos rides, the perfect way to enjoy a day of riding and ranch activities with your fellow guests. The White Stallion offers excellent accommodation, a good range of well-schooled and gentle horses, plus varied activities to interest all visitors. Visit the ranch spa for some R&R, head out on a guided hike, learn how to line dance or relax around the moonlit bonfire. For cowgirls looking for something a slightly more specialist, the ranch offers dedicated packages throughout the year.

Horse Riding

With a herd of over 120 horses, there is a ride to suit all levels of riding ability, from complete beginners to advanced riders. A variety of rides are offered, from mountain rides up the steep, rocky mountain trails where the views are incredible, to slow, easy rides across scenic desert landscapes. For more experienced riders, loping and cantering through cacti is always exciting, and the wranglers are always happy to assist beginner riders to gain the skills required to participate in these faster rides, too. For guests who are comfortable on the fast ride, all day rides are also offered. You can spend up to 8 hours in the saddle whilst covering between 20 and 25 miles. You will travel through the Saguaro National Park and visit the nearby Box Canyon and see Native American petroglyphs. A delicious lunch is served whilst out on the trail. Riding lessons are very informative and extremely popular, and are geared to the group's level. Private lessons are also available. Please note that there is an extra charge for riding lessons, which is payable locally. Dedicated 'Cowgirl' packages are offered for various weeks throughout the year, which include riding, massage, country and western dance lessons, and above all, lots of fun! Please contact us for dates and further information. For guests staying at the White Stallion during the hottest months of the year (between June and September), please be aware that the horse riding operates early in the morning and in the evening, when the air is cooler than the middle of the day.

Children

Children aged 5 years and older can enjoy the slow trail rides without their parents, and children of 8 years and older may qualify for the fast rides, mountain rides and all day rides. In addition to horse riding, there are plenty of other activities to keep them entertained, including hiking, playing tennis, basketball, volleyball, swimming, shuffleboard, foosball and table tennis. The kids can also visit the onsite petting zoo to feed the animals.

Activities and Facilities

Want some variety? Tennis, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and paddle tennis are all offered, on a versatile sport court. All courts are lit in the evenings, so play can continue after sunset. Several different guided hikes are offered each week from easy to informative, nature walk to a more challenging climb to the top of Panther Peak in the Sagauro National Park, or take a hike to visit ancient petroglyphs. For spa services, a sauna or a work out, head to the Fitness Centre, where you will find modern equipment, Sirius satellite music and spacious surroundings. The ranch's heated pool is centrally located and offers spectacular mountain views and comfortable lounge chairs to simply relax with a good book or catch forty winks. The indoor hot tub is the ideal rest place to ease tired muscles after a long day in the saddle. Or, for a little more soothing, White Stallion's licensed massage therapist offers Swedish, Deep Tissue and Hot Stone treatments. Prices range from $50 to $70 per hour, and treatments are payable locally (not included within the ranch stay). Evening entertainment is provided most evenings after dinner - a moonlight bonfire with a cowboy singer, astronomy show with large telescopes, line dancing lessons, nature and animal programs, a cowboy poet and many other fun and educational programmes. Coin-operated washer and dryer facilities are available for guests to use on the ranch. Complimentary wireless internet service is available in guest rooms and throughout most of the ranch building. The 'Rearing Horse' gift shop will keep shopaholics happy, with items ranging from clothing, riding gear, travel necessities and a fantastic selection of gifts to take home.

Guests arriving into Phoenix can either rent a car and drive to the ranch (ideal if you are planning to tour around) or take the AZ shuttle, from where the White Stallion will collect you from the AZ Northwest (Ina Road) drop off point.

USA : White Stallion Ranch Holiday Review

We have just returned from our holiday absolutely buzzing! We had the time of our lives! Thank you very much for your part. Very well done.

As for a trip highlight, the breakfast rides were our stand-out favourite. A gentle, early morning ride out to their cook-out spot, to be met by a super breakfast being cooked fresh on the camp stove. Just amazing.
