White Stallion Ranch | Arizona

Guest Ranch



The White Stallion Ranch is one of the most popular ranches in Arizona with a range of excellent accommodation, quality horses and varied activities to suit all visitors.

You can enjoy winter sunshine here, October – April, when the climate is better for riding, and for those who enjoy warmer temperatures it is also open throughout the summer, May- September.

The ranch is easily accessible being located just 26 miles from Tucson airport.  It is suitable for singles, couples & families as well as less experienced riders. They offer four rides a day (two slow and two fast) – except on Sundays.

This ranch is highly recommended and we have many repeat customers returning year after year.

White Stallion Ranch is charmingly informal which gives you a feeling of the Old West. Only here can you find 3,000 acres wide open land at the foot of the ruggedly beautiful Tucson Mountains bordering the Saguaro National Park.  Ranch informality is blended perfectly with the comforts of a top resort. Located to the north-west of Tucson, you will find yourself in close proximity to a number of local attractions such as Old Tucson Studios or the Desert Museum.

You will enjoy the western horse back riding on their fine horses, with slow and fast rides on the scores of scenic trails. This is a working cattle ranch and it’s great fun to watch the cowboys work the cattle and to see the Longhorn cattle come in to water. Other facilities to enjoy on the ranch are the sparkling heated pool, indoor hot tub, tennis courts, horseshoes, bar billiards, a sophisticated exercise room, sauna, petting zoo and much more.

There is a range of accommodation available which varies from Standard rooms and goes through to Deluxe Suites which sleep larger families and may be inter-connecting.  The smaller rooms have been renovated and will take a maximum of three people. All rooms have heating and air-conditioning.

Relax on the patios or in the large comfortable living room or in the Happy Hour saloon. Beers & wines etc. are not included in our package.

The ranch is noted for delicious meals, cookouts, steak barbecues, Indian oven dinners, hayrides plus breakfast rides and rodeos. This is one of Arizona’s most popular ranches and you should try and book well in advance as they do tend to become full particularly over Thanksgiving,  Christmas, New Year and Easter. Please note that they are open year round and rides will be early morning or late afternoon to avoid the hot sun.

Although the ranch offer an any day start, Sundays are a non riding day and so many people will try to start and finish their week on a Sunday.

White Stallion Ranch has one of the largest selection of horses in Arizona and are bound to have the right one for you. They can accommodate the experienced horse-owner to the first time rider and everyone in between.  Their greatest reward is seeing guests and horses working well together. Children 8 and older may qualify for their fast rides, mountain rides and all day rides. Those 5 years and older will enjoy the slow rides.
