Horseback Riding

One of the best ways to see Arizona’s splendor is on horseback, where you can take in the state’s natural beauty at a leisurely, relaxed pace.

From guided trails complete with cowboy tradition in Sedona to riding lessons at a Gold Canyon cattle ranch, Arizona horseback rides bring Old West history to life. Guided multi-day rides that include meals and overnight camping are also available through some providers, giving you the full Arizona Old West experience. You can also bring your own horses and take a ride on one of Arizona’s many horse-friendly trails.
