This charming, informal ranch gives you a feeling of the Old West. Only here can you find 3,000 acres of wide open land at the foot of the ruggedly beautiful Tucson Mountains bordering the Saguaro National Park. Ranch informality is blended perfectly with the comforts of a top resort. Located to the north-west of Tucson, you will find yourself in close proximity to a number of local attractions such as Old Tucson Studios or the Desert Museum.
You will enjoy the western horse back riding on their fine horses, with slow and fast rides on the scores of scenic trails. This is a working cattle ranch and it's great fun to watch the cowboys work the cattle and to see the Longhorn cattle come in to water. Other facilities to enjoy on the ranch are the sparkling heated pool, indoor hot tub, tennis courts, shuffle board, horseshoes, bar billiards, a sophisticated exercise room, sauna, petting zoo and much more.
There is a range of accommodation available which varies from the original Economy rooms and goes through to Deluxe Suites which sleep larger families and may be inter-connecting. In 2015, the smaller rooms will were ronovated so standard rooms will take a maximum of three people. All rooms have heating and air-conditioning.
Relax on the patios or in the large comfortable living room or in the Happy Hour saloon.
The ranch is noted for delicious meals, cookouts, steak barbecues, Indian oven dinners, hayrides plus breakfast rides and rodeos. Also available are moonlight bonfires with cowboy singer, a guided hiking programme, volleyball, basketball and an astronomy programme with large telescopes. This is one of Arizona's most popular ranches and you should try and book well in advance as they do tend to become booked up particularly over Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Easter. Please note that they are now open year round not just October to April. Please note rides will be early morning or late afternoon to avoid the hot sun.
Although the ranch offer an any day start, Sundays are a non riding day and so many people will try to start and finish their week on a Sunday.
This ranch has one of the largest herds of horses in Arizona and are bound to have one just right for you. They can accommodate the experienced horse-owner to the first time rider and everyone in between. Their greatest reward is seeing guests and horses working well together. Children 8 and older may qualify for our fast rides, mountain rides and all day rides. Those 5 years and older will enjoy the slow rides.
Mountain Rides Exciting and beautiful, our steep, rocky, mountain trails take you to the top of their surrounding mountains where the views are fantastic.
Slow Rides Slow and easy on the back of a horse, its the perfect way to see the desert and enjoy the incredible scenery.
Fast Rides Loping/cantering through the desert is always fun and exciting. Experienced riders love these rides and the ranch prides itself on helping beginners gain the skills needed to participate as well.
All Day Rides This could be the best ride of your life! For guests who are comfortable on the fast ride, you'll spend almost 8 hours in the saddle and cover 20 - 25 miles.

Tell Us What You Think
White Stallion Ranch provides an outstanding holiday experience! Everything from the rides through the accommodation, food and attention to detail is outstanding! The True family ensure that you are perfectly matched to your horse and if there is anything that isn't 100% right, it is immediately fixed, including changing horses. The rides are fantastic with spellbinding views and countryside evocative of another era. There are trails and speeds to suite all abilities and great care is taken by the wranglers to ensure everyone has a good ride. The accommodation is characterful, comfortable and clean and the meals are well prepared, tasty and filling. There is time in the evenings to socialise and we met many wonderful people who we hope to see again. Our best recommendation is that as soon as we returned home, we booked again for next year!

I visited White Stallion Ranch in May 2013 with my daughter and son-in-law. We had a brilliant time! It's a really fun ranch and the True family and staff make you feel most welcome. There's a great selection of healthy, happy horses and if you're not happy with the horse you are given, they'll happily change it for you. The highlight of the holiday was definitely the team penning where teams of 4 compete against one another. There's no prize for the winners but there doesn't need to be; the fun of taking part is prize enough! I hadn't thought of us as a competitive family but it turns out we are! We loved it!! The accommodation and food were excellent too and so was the evening entertainment including a 'critter man' with snakes and centipedes, and a guy who did tricks with a lasso; in fact, White Stallion Ranch was an all-round excellent experience!
It's was the holiday dreams are made of. We enjoyed every second of our stay. The True Family, Wranglers & all the staff could not have been kinder or more helpful. The ranch is, in our book 5 star, all the way. We felt we were in a western movie for the week. If you love western movies this is the ranch for you. We will return as soon as we can. I think we left part of our hearts at The White Stallion Ranch. Yeeha.!!!.
I went to the White Stallion Ranch AZ in June 2015. It was a suberb holiday! Everything you could wish for is on the ranch. There is friendly staff, excellent food and the horses are fabulous! However if you are not a fan of hot weather, you are in trouble as it was 110 degrees in the shade from 7am and only got hotter throughout the day! All the activities were adaptable to any riding skill level and there were wranglers on site to help if needed. If this holiday is something you want to do, then age does not come in to it and you can rely on Nigel to talk you through everything prior to your trip. I would highly recommend!
I must say the ranch is EXCELLENT!! Beyond my expectations. I really enjoyed it there, well looked after, great riding for novices too and a great pool! Good food, friendly people. I would definitely go again.
I visited the White Stallion Ranch in September 2016. The views were MAGICAL like everything there ... the room was clean and well laid out and the food was perfect. The week that I stayed was so enjoyable and entertaining. I was well looked after by the Wranglers and I was matched to the right horse. Just one more word to say - FANTASTIC !
