Owner description: Horse back trailrides and Dinner Cookouts. Guest House. Wagon rides pulled by draft horses. Small groups and personal attention. Special western events for larger groups. The real deal...Not a stage show or wannabe cowboy actors. Learn authentic western history and heritage on a 100 year old working cattle ranch. Enjoy scenic trails, dark starry skies endless views in a peaceful rural environment with abundant wildlife.

My teenage daughter and I had an amazing time at the M Diamond Ranch - it was the highlight of our trip to Arizona. She did an hour trail ride and then we both did the steak dinner cookout at sunset. The food was terrific and the staff were so friendly and made the experience very special. My daughter especially liked Alfie the guitar playing and singing guy. This authentic cowboy experience will be a memory we will never forget.

We followed Lonely Planet's Southwest Travel guide and reserved a ride at the M Diamond Ranch. The service was great when we asked to change our ride time the night before. We received a return call quickly and there was no trouble changing that time around. We didn't realize how far away from Sedona the ranch was, but it was really worth it, as you truly had the sense you were out on the range. Gordon greeted us as we arrived, gave us an overview of the ranch, the cattle, and some history. Great way to start! Then our crew saddled up with Travis as our guide. Travis told us a bit about his story (grew up wanting to be a rancher and has worked on a few different ranches in the Southwest) and he told us about the horses. Very patient and led a group ranging from 7 to 75 with no problems. He really made the experience b/c he was so down to earth and helpful.

Would definitely recommend that you visit the M Diamond Ranch. Only regret I have is not paying for the dinner, as I have not doubt that would be great!

Well, let's be clear that the "group ranging from 7 to 75" refers to their ages! We're glad you enjoyed your ride with Travis. And, since you didn't stay for supper, you have the perfect reason to come back!

Truly enjoyed our experience at M Diamond. It was an authentic cowboy experience. The steaks grilled on an open fire, wonderful acoustic music played by a sweetest cow poke, and kind staff all around. You feel truly out west with a slowed pace. The horse ride is rather simple but put together with everything else, it was fun and the kids (8, 10) really loved it.

My family of 4 had a wonderful time riding horses for an hour followed by the little wagon ride up the hill and the delicious cookout. The guides were helpful, friendly and funny. Riding up and down the hills and through the cows was a blast. Dinner was great. Wes cooks up a mean steak and hamburger but nothing could beat the peach cobbler. Alvin provided good entertainment with his guitar and singing. Thanks to everyone at M Diamond Ranch for making fabulous memories for my family!
