Horseback Riding



Experience the Finest

In our Horseback Riding Programs

For over 90 years, our focus here at the Circle Z Ranch has been on horseback riding, and we excel in offering our guests the absolute best riding adventure. Your horseback riding experiences at the Circle Z will leave you inspired. We have over 100 miles of trails, all leading in different directions from the ranch. Each ride lets you explore different landscapes –  colorful rock canyons, dramatic mountains, rolling range land, or along the lush Sonoita Creek. For beginners, and even for experienced riders, we offer horseback riding lessons in our covered arena so you have more confidence out on the trail. One a year, horse clinician and trainer from down-under, Carlos Tabernaberri, conducts a life changing horsemanship clinic at our historic ranch.
