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

Being from back east -- the wide open space and the beauty of Sedona ended with a night at a real cattle farm. The drive down a dirt road wondering if we were on the right road was half the fun. The meal was wonderful -- what i really wanted my family to see was a real ranch. Wide open... More

Well Arizona was researched and booked in advanced months before. We stayed at the WIGWAM Resort in Arizona which was in the outskirts of Phoniex. But all the stuff I had planned was near Sedona. The M Diamond Ranch is near Sedona and opposite direction to where we stayed. It was well worth the drive and well worth booking. The... More

You were such good sports about the fact that the Wigwam is not located in Sedona! Thank you for considering that the drive here from there was well worth it. More

My family has never ridden horseback and we wanted to try. The staff of the ranch could not have been nicer, more helpful, or more professional. Terry, our guide, was especially attentive to our comfort in the new experience. By the time the 90 minutes was up, all of us wanted to keep going and we wished we could have... More
