We arrived at 2:30 pm and were disappointed we couldn't ride that day. Everyone was very friendly. Lots of visitors from Europe made this even more interesting. Horseback riding was great fun and staff watched over me very well (last time on a horse was 20 years ago!)
The mountains were great and we even had an amateur stargazer one night. Food was adequate.
The comforts of home while riding the range - what more could you want!

We booked a three day stay at the White Stallion Ranch on a whim in January 2010, because we wanted to do something really fun & different. We love road trips so we decided to drive from Colorado, and because of our cold winters, a getaway just has to be someplace warm -- that pretty much defines Tucson.
Little did we know how much fun & enjoyment we were in for at the Ranch. But, all I can say is: "Yippee!, grab the reins, keep the knees tucked against the saddle and off you go...you're going to love it."
Don't forget to read their list of suggested things to bring with you, as they'll come in handy -- we forgot our boots and cowboy hats -- but replaced them with new ones at the on premise canteen/gift shop. And DO plan to bring a bandana or hanky to wear on your face...No, it's NOT for a Hold-Up Heist, but it'll keep the dust out of your nose and lungs on the trails - remember, it's dry and dusty out there.
Boy did they exceed our expectations. Everything is down home, desert country, fresh air, clear skies and lots of beautiful friendly horses for all skill levels. The helping hands and cowpokes are great too (and so's the food -- BBQ style!).
This is a place you might recognize even if you've never been there before, as it's been the setting for many wild west movies. You'll love the owners too - we found them to be very cool, and they made us feel relaxed, appreciated, and just like one of the group.
Again, what's not to love? And, if you can't ride before you get there, No sweat, because you'll be a pro before you leave, just itching to come back and ride the range again...real soon. Take the ride to the top of the mountain for a wonderful morning getaway and a view that tops them all.
We're coming back again soon, because it was the best 3-day vacation we've had in years. Yahoo!

We used this place more as a hotel stay versus as a dude ranch. We paid extra for some activities and that can make it a bit more expensive. But still not bad. Had a great time playing pool and other things in the game room and the lecture series which was all gratis. I will go back some day. Great staff, other guests are interesting group and beautiful surroundings. Can be a bit hard to find first time at night as there are no really big lighted signs. Also, tho just close enough for convenience to suburb area.

We just stayed at White Stallion and had the best time. Our kids loved feeding the horses, being outdoors, the playground, the petting zoo, and the rec room. My husband and I enjoyed riding in the morning and afternoon and we all enjoyed getting together in the evening for a family friendly happy hour and dinner with the rest of the guests. We left completely relaxed and rejuevated.

In 09 I spent a week doing gem shows, which wear you out fighting the crowds. The White Stallion Ranch is Fantastic and so easy to find, 15 mins from the shows. You can ride when ever you like, eat the most fantastic food, enjoy the company of people from all over the world, die and go to heaven watching the sunset, swim and relax, enjoy the nightly events, play pool, play the piano, it's a class act full of activity or a layed back kick off your boots and drink wine kind of place. The everyone at the ranch does what ever it takes to make your stay perfect ..........it's a memory you'll never forget and if you do ride they offer the best horses and miles of riding. Just do it, you won't regret it, I promise. S. Holmes
