Miles of scenic horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking trails offer ranch guests the opportunity to explore the rugged and unique Sonoran desert of the Old West. Tanque Verde Ranch has Arizona's largest stable, with over 120 well trained horses. Riding is offered every day of the week, both walking rides for beginners and loping rides for more experienced riders. The Ranch's specialty rides offer variety and adventure to the regular riding schedule.
Breakfast rides up to the Old Homestead for a cowboy breakfast are scheduled twice a week, and should not be missed.
All day rides are offered weekly and feature a 6 hour ride with a lunch out on the trail. This is a great way to experience the Old West!
Picnic rides feature a stop in Cottonwood Grove for a picnic lunch.
Beginning and advanced riding lessons and horsemanship classes are offered daily as well, and, as with all riding, are included in the rate!
The guided hiking program offers miles of breathtakingly beautiful trails. Hikes range in level of difficulty to allow everyone to participate!
The mountain biking program provides a fun & different way to explore the desert. Specialized mountain bikes, helmets and gloves provided by The Ranch, insure great biking experiences even for new riders!
For those that are not so aerobically inclined, the guided nature walks offer the opportunity to experience the plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert on our nature trails. The Ranch's staff naturalists offers special programs that allow guests to see some of the desert's creatures up close and personal.
The facilities include indoor and outdoor heated pools, a separate children's wading pool, and an exercise room. A large Jacuzzi and men's and ladies' saunas provide the perfect way to relax after a long day in the saddle! For an additional fee, championship golf is nearby, and in-room massage can be arranged.
There are 5 tennis courts, including one Omni artificial turf court which is lighted for nightplay, and a staff tennis pro to help you with your game! Basketball, volleyball, and catch & release fishing are also available, and The Ranch provides all the equipment!
