Whether horseback riding is new to you or you are an experienced rider, our varied riding program and friendly wranglers are sure to please.  Regardless of your riding ability, we have the right horse for you.  Enjoy scenic rides through Saguaro-cactus stands or along mountain terrains.  A number of riding options are available (click here to see riding options).

Riding lessons are available at an extra charge.  Natural horsemanship demonstrations are complimentary.

There is an exhibition rodeo on Saturday afternoons with barrel racing, team roping, steer wrestling, breakaway roping, accompanied by a fascinating narration of rodeo history by ranch owner, Russell True.

Guided hikes take place Tuesday through Friday mornings.  They start out with an easy nature walk and advance to a rugged mountain hike to Panther Peak.  There are a variety of trails that guests can hike by themselves.

The heated pool has a gorgeous mountain view with the opportunity to enjoy the sun or seek out the shade.  An indoor redwood hot tub is adjacent to the pool and is much enjoyed after a day in the saddle.

The recreation room has an assortment of amusements including billiards, foosball, air hockey, table tennis, table shuffleboard, cable TV and a 27-seat home-style theater.

Just outside the recreation room is a sunken, lighted tennis court plus a lighted sports court for basketball or volleyball.  In this same lighted area is a children’s playground. A fitness center with exercise room, sauna and massage therapy is also available.
