We had an outstanding, fabulous, fun, delicious and relaxing time at the Circle Z. The owners were so open and welcoming. The Wranglers were terrific and easy going. We loved the views riding through the mountains and on the open plains. It was just spectacular. I would totally do this again.

The Circle Z Ranch is an amazing place to stay for any occasion. If you want to ride horses, take nature hikes, birding trips, do day trips around beautiful Southern Arizona, meet fun and interesting people, eat some of the best food around, sit around a bonfire and sing songs, or sit near the fireplace and talk with other guests...

I have never felt more welcome and appreciated as I did here. It wasn't an effort on their part. It's just how they are. Super kind people that want you... More

We have been coming to circleZ for 20 years because the riding is awesome, the scenery is spectacular, there is good food and lots of it (maybe too much!) and we always meet nice people there. Plus the family that manages the horses and riding are wonderful.

We loved the experience at Circle Z and recommend it for ANYONE who wants to enjoy some wonderful days in beautiful country, whether beginning or advanced riders. Food was very good and not just "barbecue." The staff is outstanding and the grounds are exceptional. So are the horses!

After each visit we both look at each other and say this was the best vacation. Top quality horses, personal service and great meals. From the corral to the very comfortable accomadations one always wants to stay a little longer. The Circle Z is the best guest ranch experience. If you've never ridden a horse fear not you will be...
