Ranch Activities - Circle Z Ranch

Fun for the Whole Family

There is always something to do at the Circle Z!

In addition to our horseback riding adventures, there are a variety of activities at the Circle Z. There are campfire nights with s’mores, nightly social hour, weekly calf roping demonstrations, and plenty of outdoor space for enjoying those Arizona blues skies and legendary sunsets.  Not to mention the nearby towns that offer shopping, wine tastings, cavern exploring, and historic tours. There is always something to do at the Circle Z, no matter your interests!

Campfire Night

On Wednesday evenings we bring out the s’mores, tune up the guitars, and light up the night with our campfire. Join wrangler Johnny out on the front lawn for this evening to remember!

Cantina Cocktail Hour

Each evening before dinner, the stories are shared, friendships made, and the camaraderie from the day on the trails continues at our BYOB cantina social hour. We provide the appetizers, you bring you sense of spirit.

For Kids

How often do we long for the days of giving our children the gift of nature, in a safe and healthy environment, where the electronics are shelved and our kids are happy and laughing, making new friends and experiencing new adventures.

Roping Demonstrations

Our Bar Z Ranch provides the perfect setting for our weekly roping demonstrations, showing off part of cowboy culture to our guests! Our expert calf ropers will wow you with their skill and horse finesse each Saturday. Don’t miss the fun!

Yoga Stretching

Depending on interest, mid-week we offer a stretching session for those stiff muscles. With the Patagonia mountains as a backdrop, we help to get you ready to ride for the rest of the week!


With the horses, the amazing unspoiled vistas, there is so much opportunity for excellent photography. Whether you are a professional or amateur, you can have fun capturing the charm of the ranch!
