Here are some of the activities you will enjoy for New Mexico adventure vacations during your stay with us:

Horseback Riding 

Our main focus is on exploring this incredible area by horseback. From mountain views and ridges to deep canyons with spring fed creeks running through them, our vast area allows for you to ride a different direction and see new views every day of your stay. We have well-trained, responsive horses and can accommodate any level of rider whether you are a beginner, an experienced rider or anything in between.

Native American Culture

This area has a rich and fascinating history you will be able to discover during your stay at our ranch including pit houses, cliff dwellings, pictographs, pottery shards, and other artifacts of the Mimbres people who were here from 200-1150 AD. This is the homeland of the Chiricahua Apaches and the birthplace of Geronimo the famous Apache warrior. You will also learn about Basque Sheepherders coming through the area, Cowboys, Outlaws and even Tin Mining!

Outdoor Adventures

Situated within the 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest, you will be able to explore areas few people have ever been before. Enjoy viewing wildlife such as elk, mule deer and javelina and bird watching in this nature lover’s paradise. From mountain peaks to canyon valleys, beautiful flowering meadows to crystal clear streams, you’ll enjoy pristine scenery untouched by the modern world. We think this is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Come experience it with us!
