Great location, great food, great star-gazing, great hosts and the world's most adorable horses. Alicia and Tom are warm and accommodating and have opened up their corner of a desert wonderland. They were great in listening to what we needed and making it work for us. We did not ride horses while there because it was very cold and we had our 5 year old with us. Next time we will for sure. Our daughter has not stopped talking about her best horse friends, Kachina and Short-Stuff. We will definitely be going back. Go there for enjoying the miniature horses, riding, hiking, exploring SE Arizona and great home cooked food.
