Horseback riding offers an incomparably soul-satisfying way to take in the spirit of the Sedona and this region and learn about the unique ecosystem that makes it so special. Every horseback adventure we offer is guaranteed to provide an authentic and memorable experience set in an awe-inspiring, wilderness landscape. You will ride on private trails accessed only by the M Diamond Ranch and the wildlife that naturally inhabits the area. There are no hikers, bikers and dogs running on our trails!

Come enjoy our wide open spaces and learn how we work to protect and improve them.  This is a great opportunity to see wildlife, but it is NOT an appointment to do so; we’re dealing with Mother Nature here, not Walt Disney! Depending on the season, you might see elk, deer, antelope, bighorn sheep, Gambel quail, javelina, red tail hawks, and western blue birds in the winter and wildflowers in the spring. So, bring your camera – the sights are awesome!

Our Wrangler Guides Recommend:

  • Long pants and closed toe shoes strongly recommended. Hats must be secured with "stampede strings" (we don't have stampedes but we do have some wind!)
  • Pocket-sized cameras are best on the trailride.  Larger cameras, bags and backpacks must be stowed until after the ride. Cell phones WILL work their way out of your back pocket and may be lost on the trail.
  • Riders must be 7 years old or older; younger kids can be led around the corral horseback (we call this a pony ride), but must be accompanied by a parent. See our FAQ page for more information.
  • Trail and weather conditions apply. We go rain or shine unless the conditions are unsafe, which are usually severe thunderstorms occuring late in the afternoon in the summer monsoon season (July-Sept.).
  • Cancellation policy: 100% charge for less than 24 hrs. notice, or no show
  • Horseback riding is NOT recommended for pregnant women, persons with back problems, allergic reactions, or certain medical and physical conditions.
  • Please notify us of any special needs, including weight
