Historical Traveller Reviews of White Stallion Ranch Hotel
A Truely Great Experiencefrom BRC333
Loved White Stallion Ranchfrom CathC
It's a very easy place to mix with other guests. The bar and dining room seating is arranged in such a way that you gradually meet everyone else who is staying.
There were people of all ages and nationalities staying and every kind of family grouping from singles to grandparents with grandchildren.
The staff are without exception amazing. The food is excellent, hearty and varied. All the evening activities were lots of fun and suited to all age groups.
We very much hope to visit again next year. In February the mornings and evenings are chilly but when the sun is up it is bathing suit weather, perfect.
Just got back .....checking availablity for next year!from janandian
Loved it!!from dp3693
I was travelling alone for the first time and was anxious about whether or not I would feel out of place amongst the families and couples, but this really wasn't the case. There was a great mix of both families, couples and travellers (both male and female) going it alone from all over the world.
I cannot praise the staff highly enough - everyone - and I mean everyone, at the ranch is friendly, approachable and can't do enough for you. The food is fantastic (especially the cookies!)and there is so much to do, you will not be bored!
The horses are all in excellent condition and with impeccable manners - a real compliment in itself to the owners and the wranglers who work hard and look after them. They have ponies and horses to cater for all levels of ability and confidence and whilst they are keen for you to enjoy your stay, they are also keen to ensure the safety of all guests and horses by ensuring that they match the right horse to the right rider.
The scenery is amazing and the sunsets from the outside bar area are beautiful. There is a great gym, pool area and a masseur with magic hands!
As well as a variety of riding programs throughout the day, the ranch also offers hikes, bike rides, and for the ladies, trips to local shops. There is evening entertainment too.
I arrived at White Stallion a stressed out Pom, desperate for a break from work, nervous about what to expect and praying that I would not embarrass myself with my horsemanship skills.
I left (very reluctantly) a very relaxed lady who is already planning her return visit. I met some great people (both working at the ranch and fellow guests) and unlike other holidays where you feel ready to return home, I felt like I could have stayed forever!
I have improved my riding and my confidence in the saddle has increased no-end. I was really impressed by the number of new and novice riders who in a couple of days were loping across the desert.
You must go and see for yourself - don't forget to have a go at team penning, its really good fun! (check out the photos!)
Thank you White Stallion!!
What fun we hadfrom A TripAdvisor Member
A haven of old fashioned hospitality, relaxation and fun.from Newtouristintown
Everything at White Stallion exceeded our expectations. We have been fortunate enough to travel to many parts of the world, so we have high expectations - this ranch was superb!
From the friendly and welcoming staff and wranglers, to the food, scenery, accommodation, and, of course the wonderful horses! These people really care about their horses and it shows. The saddles were good quality and comfortable, and all the horses we rode were willing, kind and very safe.
They are hand picked to suit individual riding experience - my Mum (75 years young) had never ridden before, and expected maybe to be brave enough to do one short ride - but she enjoyed it so much that she rode every day for 5 days and even went on a mountain ride!
My daughter is an experienced rider and went on different rides that were interesting and challenging.
I have not ridden for 20 years, and was very rusty, but I rode at least once every day and we even did some team penning which was really exciting! It was fantastic.
There were plenty of other activities - hiking, swimming, tennis, hayrides, breakfast rides to a cookout in the desert, or just relaxing by the pool.
The casitas were comfortable and clean, with plenty of hot water for baths or showers,and the grounds are beautifully kept.
The food was plentiful, freshly prepared and delicious. Even though we had some dietary restrictions, there was no problem and we ate like kings!!
I could go on and on about this wonderful ranch - there is not one single negative thing to say - except that 5 nights was not enough!
BRAVO to the True family - may your special brand of hospitality continue to give pleasure in a world which is changing so fast (and not for the better). This little corner of Arizona is filled with peace and fun. It's a "must do" for everyone - young or old. But don't just take my word for it - go visit and enjoy!!

ve vacationed all over the world and this was the bestfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The True Family make you feel like your part of thier family. I was most impressed with how Russell and Michael True (the owners) got to know every guests first name and always addressed you by your first name. From the wranglers to the front deak help, they all made you feel so special.
If your a beginner or an experienced rider your able to partisipate in all the riding activities. From the early morning Breakfast rides to the all day rides its an experience you will never forget or regret. From the kids to the senior citizens you leave there knowing that you got to experience what a real cowboy or cowgirl life was like.
I know my wife and I are going to do what many families have been doing for years, making the White Stallion Dude Ranch an annual event.

Top Local Tips for Tucson
Rent a car, but don't use Alamo from Phoenix!! We arrived at the Phoenix airport on Jan 2 and plannned to rent a car to drive to Tucson. We booked ahead from Alamo. When we got to the airport, we were greated by rude staff, and they did not have the correct reservation. The manager was busy too busy giggling on the phone to assist the woman dealing with our reservations, who was having trouble using the computer system. A surely young man finally came to her aid and informed us that the trouble was our fault because we had used the advanced fast check-in, after that he stormed away. It took us over an hour and a half to get our car and it was a smaller one than we had booked and had not been cleaned. (If this was fast check-in, I'de hate to see how long regular check-in takes). This was the worst car rental experience ever!! I kept on expecting someone from "Candid Camera" to pop out to tell us this was just a hoax and this was being taped for a new reality show. Nope, they were seriouse!
getting in and out The Ranch provides a gratis shuttle service to and from the Tucson airport.
Tombstone Tombstone is about an hour and a half from the ranch. Definitely worth seeing if you chose to spend a day off the ranch.
