The White Stallion Ranch sits on 3,000 acres of pristine Sonoran desert. The southern boundary borders Saguaro National Park West, famous for its stands of majestic saguaro cacti. The surrounding landscape provides an amazing backdrop for scenic horseback rides and more adventurous fast rides through the desert. The varied riding program includes: scenic rides, fast rides, breakfast rides, mountain rides, all day rides and team cattle penning (cattle work done in the arena). Wednesdays typically offer an exhibition rodeo with steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing and break-a-way roping. We offer several specials throughout the year: December Special, Cactus Cowgirls Weeks, Animal Communication Workshops and the Summer Bonanza.
The ranch offers comfortable accommodations ranging from attractive single rooms to deluxe suites with whirlpool bath or fireplaces. The Spanish style architecture complements the desert landscaping and all 41 rooms are decorated in a southwestern style. Amenities include a heated pool, hot tub, fitness center, sauna, movie theater, sports court with full court basketball, volleyball, badminton and paddle tennis, tennis court and a recreation room. In addition to horseback riding, there are several guided hikes each week and a variety of evening programs.
The meals are home-style cooking with many ranch recipes. Start your day with a cooked to order ranch style breakfast. Lunch is generally served buffet style with a main entrée, a selection of salads and a sandwich bar. The dinners are a variety of meat, fowl and fish. Some of our favorites are ribs and chicken, barbequed shrimp and pork loin or a delicious steak grilled over a mesquite fire. Special dietary requests, and diets (vegan, vegetarian and gluten free) are cheerfully accommodated.
