Having ridden in many central and western states on our own horses, I went along on this trip with my husband not really expecting much. What a surprise. This was one of the best horseback riding trips we have taken, even though we left our own horses home. Meris and Seth offer a very comfortable place to call home for... More

I knew that this was going to be an amazing place just from the drive to the ranch and I was not disappointed. Arrived late afternoon and was met by Meris & Seth who made me feel very welcome straight away. The next day I was introduced to my horse, Blue. Being a relative beginner I always worry about the...

We visited this ranch in April and had a super time! The horses were well cared for, the tack new and in good repair and the trails awesome. We stayed 5 days and never rode the same trail twice and each trail had spectacular views of the Gila, stunning rides through canyons and beautiful meadows, not to mention fascinating history...

My mom and I have stayed at many different guest ranches throughout the West. All were good in their own way, but none of them compare with the experience we had at Geronimo Trail. The accommodations were very nice, the food excellent and the riding beyond belief! We have never been to a place with such diverse scenery----every bit of... More

If you really want to get away and enjoy nature, great food, friendly/comfortable atmosphere, beautiful country and super safe, well-cared for horses Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is a perfect choice. I loved being off the grid so to speak. Traveling through the Gila on horseback with Seth and Meris as our guides was wonderful. They know the area well including... More

From arrival to departure, the whole experience was fabulous. The accommodation was appropriate for a ranch holiday, the location was remote, ok no cell phone, but with wi-if you still have contact. The food was delicious, and plentiful, courtesy of Tim. The campfire experience we will always remember, glad I brought my Uke along....but most importantly the horses were exceptional,... More

I've been to this Ranch at least five times ... Every trip has been worth a trip back. I like to ride & the horse are truly special - The food has always been great - even the "crepes" ... which I had hoped were "Pigs in a Blanket". The rooms are clean & neat. The hot shower after a... More

For several years I'd been telling friends that I wanted to go to a ranch for vacation. After sorting through dozens of listings, most on the two extremes of the spectrum (either sleep on the ground at a spot with no electricity or stay at a four-star resort that happened to have a few horses) I finally found Geronimo Trail....

We have a new appreciation for exceptional hospitality, trustworthy trail horses, outstanding scenery, and great food. Everything about our stay was fantastic!!! Meris and Seth put so much thought and attention into every aspect of our visit. The cabins were so homey and comfortable, we especially enjoyed the homemade cookies. Tim went above and beyond in the meals that he... More

We were greeted warmly, had great rides, good food, and great friends. Meris and Seth go out of their way to provide a wonderful experience. Thank you for your knowledge of the area and for caring. Not to forget are Tim's meals. Yummy!! Missing scary cat already. (:
