We flew into Phoenix for a family vacation. We decided to drive to Sedona one day, which ended up being the absolute best day of the trip. On our way back to Phoenix, we booked a trail ride and dinner at M Diamond Ranch. I think my niece put it best when she said, "This is the best day of my life! Well second to the day I was born." Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The horses were great and the dinner was the best we had on our vacation! Alvie is wonderful and does a fantastic job entertaining everyone. If you are thinking about horseback riding I would highly recommend M Diamond Ranch.

My husband and I, along with our 2 daughters, ages 8 and 10, participated in the Ranch Rendezvous last night. Apparently Mother Nature did not get the memo, so our trail ride had to be canceled due to thunder/lightning.

Even though the girls were disappointed, we decided to stay for dinner as planned, and boy are we glad we did! Sandy cooked up an absolutely amazing meal of ribeye steaks, corn, garlic bread, beans and coleslaw, which was topped off with a delicious peach cobbler a la mode. My husband is very picky about his steaks, and he said it was one of the best steaks he's ever had.

Throughout dinner, we got to relax to country songs performed by Alvie in his soothing voice, and had very nice chats with both Larry (the owner) and Gordon. The sunset was gorgeous, and thanks to the monsoon season, we were treated to an amazing lightning show. The whole experience was incredibly picturesque and relaxing.

Because of the inclement weather, Gordon very decently offered us the option of a refund for the trail ride part of the package, or the opportunity to return later in the week to do the ride. The drive out from Sedona is a little hairy to do twice in one vacation (the last 4.5 miles is an unpaved road which gave my Toyota minivan a little bit of a challenge!), so we are still trying to decide what to do. But irrespective of that, don't miss out on this experience!

Bring your camera and a light jacket, because it does get cool after the sun sets.

Many thanks to Larry, Gordon, Sandy, Alvie et al for a wonderful evening.

Thank you for such a nice review.Of course we really do hate to disappoint guests about the ride, but we always err on the side of safety when it comes to our monsoon storms. As for the road, while the conditions do vary, the Forest Service maintains it suitable for use by passenger cars - you just can't drive fast. And you know what they say, "The Real West begins where the pavement ends!"

Glad you enjoyed our 1 1/2 hour ride. It is fairly new, and offers inexperienced riders the choice of a slightly longer ride, with the opportunity in places to ride side-by-side. We look forward to seeing you again!

We had a fabulous time on a horseback ride and dinner at the ranch. The horses were pleasant and fun to ride. The ranchers ran the entire show professionally. We had great conversations! The food was excellent, music was enjoyable (a guy from the Rock-a-billy Hall of Fame!), and the views were spectacular!
