We took our two grand-children for their first horseback riding lessons on horses (not ponies) at the Apache Spirit Ranch. They are four and six. It was the highlight of their Christmas visit. Cody, their guide taught them to use the reins to turn the horse and was patient and watchful but also let them try to manage the horses on their own. The location is lovely with views of the Dragoon Mountains and unspoiled desert. Everyone was friendly; we hung around in the bar for a while and played bingo and pool. My husband and I live in Bisbee only 30 miles away but are considering coming to stay overnight sometime as a closeby getaway. The Ranch is near Tombstone and Kartchner Caverns.
