“A Great Family Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

My sister and I just returned from a memorable few days at White Stallion with my 16-year-old niece. The staff and wranglers are friendly and knowledgeable, the facilities are superb, the horses are well trained with great temperaments, the food is great, and the atmosphere lends itself to making friends with other guests as well. Russell True runs the ranch very professionally and he has such great instincts about people and horses. I felt challenged to do more than I thought I could do as a rider (i.e., fast rides in the desert, team cattle penning), but with good training through semi-private lessons. There is something for everyone, whether you ride or not, at any age (swimming, fitness center, massage, game room, art lessons, etc). I would highly recommend White Stallion for a great family experience!

My best friend and I happened upon a deal through AAA for this wonderful getaway just outside of Tucson. We were looking for a little stay-cation and WS Ranch more than met our expectations. The staff is friendly and accommodating from the very first phone call to final checkout. Charming and spacious rooms, excellent and plentiful food, plenty of activities, beautiful desert scenery. The entire staff was wonderful and we so enjoyed meeting the other guests, many of whom came from "across the pond" and have made this an annual destination. We highly recommend this wonderful place to everyone -- especially local folks, like us, who just want a little getaway. We will definitely be back!

I reviewed White Stallion Ranch last year and feel it deserves another review after this year's trip. If you are looking for an authentic working dude ranch experience in an authentic southwest Arizona desert location, this is the place for you and your family. The ranch is kept very clean, the horses are in excellent condition, and the wranglers and staff are just great. The moment you arrive and for the duration of your stay the staff all know your name and call you by name. Customer service is a perfect 10. The pool and spa is nice, the food is always very good. You won't go hungry. The casitas are wonderful. Our second trip this year was even better than last year. Our 10 year old daughter went on fast rides again this year, and our 6 year old daughter took several lessons where she learned to trop, lope and to guide her horse. There are a variety of rides like the breakfast ride where we ate breakfast out in the desert, and the beer and cheese ride. We all loved it and will go back again. There is always other activities going on in the evenings as well, like critter night. This year there was an astronomer who brought his high powered telescope. I highly recommend this ranch for a family vacation. It is interesting that most of the guests are from Europe. We met folks from England, Ireland, Germany, Holland to mention a few. Just a great time.

Just returned from a week at the White Stallion with my 12 year old daughter. This place is as good as the reviews say. if you want the Ranch Experience then look no further. Russell True and the Ranch staff and all the Wranglers are first class!
Nothing is too much trouble for these guys and the service, accommodation and food are top notch.

If your a single parent like myself or even a single traveller then dont be put off, everyone gets to know each other and the atmosphere is very relaxed.

Big thanks to Russell and thestaff at the White Stallion, we will be returning!!

4 nights was not near enough time at the White Stallion Ranch. My son (13 years old) and I both had a blast! The horses were great and they offered a variety of rides to go on. Our favourite thing was definitely the Penning! The personal service was spectacular. All the Wranglers knew our name on the first day. The meals were exceptional. Can't think of anything bad to say about our stay (other than it was not long enough). We also met so many people from all around the world. We are already planning our trip back next year. Next year we will plan on a full week!

This place is romantic, an adventure holiday, a signtseeing holiday, a sun holiday, a "get away from it all" holiday and can be a great group holiday if you want it to be. I came with my now fiancée and we were impressed with the facilities and the all inclusive everything you need is here set up. I was after some very poor experiences of horse riding in the states but this turned my impression around of western style horse riding. The horses were fantastic and they had a horse for every riders personality and ability and they were very healthy we were both experienced riders and we had a great time. I could talk all day about how great it was but there is a clear trend amongst these reviews. Just stay here if you can afford it, it is great value.
