Horseback Riding in the Gila Wilderness

If you are looking for a small bit of adventure, then join us for a full or half-day trail ride on horseback. We offer rides that are suitable for the whole family, and we can accommodate any rider level, from novice to advanced. A horse will be selected for you that accommodates your size and riding ability. Our horses are mild-mannered and well-trained. Our weight limit for a rider is 200 pounds.

On horseback, you can ride through many trails and be awed by the splendor and beauty of the Gila Wilderness. In a single day, you can have breakfast on the banks of a cool stream, lunch on an Alpine ridge, and dinner in a high mountain meadow. Let your stresses melt away, forget the cell phone and the pager, breathe the sharp tang of pine needles, and feel the cool canyon air on your face.

Wildlife is occasionally spotted while on horseback, including deer, coyotes, wolves, and foxes. Sighting of birds and butterflies of many varieties is also common. Enjoy our many wildflowers. Use the opportunity to take some great photos.

For those who want to extend their visit, lodging, and campsites are available, including RV and tent sites.
