I am a horse lover for 55 years and have been riding all my life. My guy had never ridden a horse before and carries a healthy trepidation of their size and power. For one ride to accommodate both of our needs so perfectly is pretty amazing. The horses were gorgeous, fat, well behaved and quite happy to amble along.... More

I went to M Diamond with my 10 year old horse loving daughter. We were able to book it online the night before. I'm a real chicken when it comes to horses but I can honestly say I felt super comfortable on this ride. The ranch is very authentic and Sam our guide was really informative and took photos of...

Student groups from our Washington state school have visited M-Diamond Ranch on two different occasions and each has been a highlight of their trip through the Southwest! The staff is extremely accommodating and strives to craft a special experience that is just right for our students. The wranglers are very personable and interact well with both students and adults.

This was one of the best things our family did on our Arizona vacation! Let me start off by saying how accommodating they were to our group. We were 7 people, 2 grandparents, my husband & I and our 3 children. We had a late afternoon ride reserved but that morning our youngest woke up not feeling well. I called... More

We're so glad Amy was able to "go the extra mile" and make adjustments for your ride. In general, we are a low-volume operation which gives us flexibility and gives our guests a personal experience. We look forward to seeing you again. More

My husband and I try to take a trail ride as often as possible when we're on vacation. He is a total non-rider, I adore horses and ride twice a week. It's not always easy to find a stable that appeals to both of us - he, needing a calm, steady horse to go at a walk, and I, needing... More

Great staff, very accommodating even when we went to wrong location! Rescheduled our night and opened just for our group. Went for an hour trail ride; staff matched people with suitable horses (based on age, experience)! Entertained the entire trail ride, had a new guide Tia, who went above and beyond, taking pictures (and emailing them to us), telling jokes,... More

As a "horse person" I enjoy riding when I travel but am often saddened by the condition of some tourist-toting horses. The horses at M Diamond Ranch were well fed, well groomed and well shod. I could enjoy the ride without feeling guilty about an over-worked animal. Sam was a great guide, toughing it out with a great attitude as... More

I often say returning guests pay us the greatest compliment, but right behind that is recognition by "horse people" of the condition and care we take of our horses. Thank you so much. More

The ranch is easy to get to from Sedona and the evening trail ride followed by a made to order steak dinner was absolutely wonderful. The owners could not be more delightful as well as the "cook" and country singer that added great ambiance! Highly recommend! As a side note we had about 10-14 people riding ranging in age from...

Great 2 1/2 hour private ride. My daughter 17 and wife enjoyed it. James tailored the ride for their experience and it worked out perfect for them. The ranch is run well and everyone was very nice. Don't get concerned with the 4 mile dirt road before you arrive. It's a nice drive. Enjoy!!
