ACTIVITIES > HORSEBACK RIDING



Situated in the high Sonoran Desert and with access to over 135,000 acres of trails, Rancho De La Osa offers controlled pleasure rides.  Rides are both unique and exciting.  One day you could find yourself riding over rocky uplands and across grassland desert rounding up Longhorn cattle.  The next day out riding a mountain trail, perhaps packing a breakfast or lunch with you.   Whether you're a complete beginner or an experienced rider we have a horse and ride suited to your ability.

DAILY RIDING

With 2 scheduled horseback rides per day*, each of approximately two hours in duration, the traditional ranch vacation is suitable for riders of all abilities.  Explore Rancho De La Osa and the surrounding area with our experienced and informative wranglers.   *Please note that on holidays our horses get half a day off and we offer either one trail ride or dudeo on these days. If you are staying for one night, there will only be one ride scheduled during your stay. If you wish to arrive early, and schedule a second ride,  please call for charges and information.


COUPLES ROUNDUP

Call us at 1-520-823-4257 to arrange a private camp!          

                       

Grab your favorite cowboy or cowgirl and let’s ride!

After many guest requests, we are going to offer a couple’s western riding camp this season featuring horsemanship, riding instructions and wrangling experience.  In just 5 days at the ranch, you will learn to care for your horse and ride with confidence.

Every day you and your partner will become closer to being the horseman you want to become.  Our goal is to teach you everything we can from grooming to galloping your horse across the desert in a safe and professional manner.

Whether you’re a novice or an intermediate rider, you will leave this ranch a better rider.  You will be able to catch, groom and saddle your horse.  You will have lots of time in the saddle, riding across rough terrain and rounding up cattle to drive back to the ranch.

You will take home with you increased confidence and knowledge of horses, for a lifetime of great riding.

ELIGIBILITY:  Fun lovin’ couples who want to ride!

AVAILABILITY:  Due to the individual instruction and action-packed agenda, we offer these programs for a minimum of 2 guests and maximum of 8 guests.

RATE:  Our package price of $999.00 per person, plus 16.5% service charge and 7.5% room tax includes deluxe guest room accommodations for 4 nights, all meals, instruction and riding activities.

PRIVATE LESSONS - $50 per hour per person

During your stay, let our expert wranglers increase your enjoyment and understanding of the sport of horseback riding.  Suitable for riders of all abilities, private lessons are scheduled not to interfere with your regular daily horseback trail rides.
