Group Lessonsthings to do with kids in Southwest NM

The key to enjoying your time on horseback lies in our group orientation. To ensure that every guest is comfortable with their horse, we teach everyone the basics before their first ride. In addition to our well-structured group lesson, an experienced wrangler will accompany you on every ride! If you have any questions about riding or about the area, we are always there to help.

Beautiful Scenery


One of the best things about horseback riding is that it allows you to enjoy an off-the-beaten-path adventure! When you’re on a horse, areas that are challenging to reach are much easier to get to, making your excursion that much more fun. Our horses can take you through breathtaking canyons, across crystal-clear streams, and up to the most incredible overlooks in the 3.3-million-acre Gila National Forest.

Rich History & Extraordinary Nature


Believe it or not, horseback riding in the Gila will expose your kids (and possibly you as well!) to a whole new world. On our daily excursions, we’ll encounter everything from local wildlife to extraordinary history. With so much to discover, you will be learning something new as a family every step of the way!

Our peaceful retreat is located in a remote area of Southwest New Mexico, so you can disconnect and surround yourself with nothing but nature. Make yourself at home in any of our cozy cabins and treat yourself to a delicious array of homecooked meals each day.

The fun doesn’t end there! Around the ranch, the whole family can enjoy board games, horseshoes, trying their hand at roping, watching a western movie, learning a line dance, or making s’mores around the campfire!
