We originally booked the cowboy cookout with the one hour trail ride. But, the weather would not let us ride, so disappointed, but do realize no one controls that. Thankfully, they still said we could come to the ranch and have the cookout and just spend some time. The meal was awesome, great steak! Alvie, the entertainer, was a gem!... More

Did the hour horseback ride and cowboy dinner. Horses were very gentle and did the nose to tail, single file thing (which was what I expected). The guide was not particularly interactive with us, but I don't think that is typical. Although this ranch is near Sedona, this is not a red rock scenic ride (nor is it advertised as... More

I grew up riding but my husband and I both might ride once every 1-3 years now. We initially had booked a pink jeep/horseback riding tour but changed to a horseback only ride with a jeep tour later in the week to save our aching limbs. We had a private ride with Bill on Kick and Wilma. A nice 2-2.5... More

Myself and four classmates from nursing school turned 65 years old this year. We normally go to the beach but decided to do something different and a bit out of the box for us - kind of a bucket list thing! We chose an hour horseback ride followed by a delicious steak dinner at M Diamond. We all had a... More

My husband booked us a trail ride for my birthday and it was wonderful. As someone who grew up riding horses but due to life getting in the way during adulthood, I was grateful for the gesture itself just to be around horses again. I have been on numerous trail rides in my life and they're usually very touristy with... More

Lately we have had several couples such as you, where one is a more experienced rider than the other. So, we have made some modifications to our trail, and I'm really glad to hear that you BOTH enjoyed it. Thanks for your review! More

We loved our time at M Diamond Ranch! We did the evening Ranch Rendezvous and it was so relaxing. We were originally booked in for a Wednesday night, but Peggy contacted us a few days before to check for flexibility seeing as the weather forecast was for a storm. I appreciated the heads up! We rescheduled to Friday and avoided... More

We have had ourselves an unusually productive monsoon season this year, and we really hate to disappoint guests, so we appreciate it so much when you can be flexible with the dates you visit. Thank you and thanks for your visit and kind review. More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a cowboy sunset ride & cookout on our last night in Sedona, and we were completely thrilled! The staff was very knowledgeable, kind, FUN, and made our trail ride very enjoyable. Perhaps the OTHER highlight was the cowboy from Cottonwood who serenaded us with Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels' Band, and other GREATS during our... More

My wife and I enjoyed the trail ride and a steak dinner, amazing!! We also had a real cowboy serenade us while we dined, he was cool. Peggy and her husband were great as well.

This was a truly enjoyable ride. Peggy and all the others at the ranch were so hospitable and welcoming. The ride through the hills was a wonderful way to get a feel for this beautiful country. It's a working ranch with a spread of a few hundred head of cattle, raising their own quarter horses, and rabbits, quail, and roadrunners... More

We did the evening trail ride and cowboy dinner cookout. It was amazing!! I picked M diamond based off of previous reviewers and we were very pleased. We are not horse riders at all, but they made the newbies feel very welcome. The cookout was great fun with very yummy, probably the best I have ever eaten, steak. Roping for... More
