Giddy-Up Getaways

Horsing around

The list of ranch activities is expansive. On site is a mountain biking center where guests can reserve bikes for exploring the property’s trails. Fishing can be done from the banks of Lake Corchran. TVR’s nature center offers educational pursuits, including bird-watching and guided hikes that showcase the Sonoran Desert as well as the Rincon and Catalina Mountains. Also to enjoy – two swimming pools (one indoor, one outdoor), water aerobics, tennis courts, basketball, La Sonora Spa, yoga, watercolor workshops, a children’s play area and off-site golfing. But then, there are the horses.

The ranch’s 99 horses are accessible for everything from lessons to trail riding, barrel racing to team penning. Not to miss is Harmony with Horses, a special program that helps even the most saddle skittish find the right rhythm and horsemanship skills for falling in love with equestrianism.
