We stayed here for three nights in July 2010. We had an 8 hour drive from Las Vegas and when we arrived we were greeted by very friendly staff. We had never done a ranching holiday before, or even rode a horse! But my Fiancee decided that she wanted to do it as part of her 21st Birthday present. The room was very clean, cozy and most importantly had GOOD AIR CON as it was averaging 117 degrees outside. Anyway, it was all inclusive and the food was great, small menus but always very tasty! And freshly prepared! Had a lovely barbeque and, although it thundered and rained, it was a fabulous evening, with the Cowboy playing the guitar in the background. I personally only rode once, but my partner got hooked and was on them at every opportunity!! The wranglers, were nice people and did everything they could to help you gain confidence. I had never rode before, so it was new to me. My partner had rode before, but was thrown off when she was young, the wranglers, (Karen) took this on board and helped her gain confidence. Well after that I could not get her off of the horses. They horses seemed well looked after and were very tame. It is quite romantic as apparently the sunsets in Arizona are different to everywhere else, meaning the colours are fantastic. Plus the mountains make a great backdrop for a lovely evening. It was a shame to leave the place, as being from London, surrounded by buildings, this was completely different. Being surrounded by mountains and Cacti was fantastic. Im sure we would do it again! Well my partner will tomorrow if she could!!!!!
