Summer brings much warmer weather, making it an excellent time to relax by the pool or indulge in stargazing sessions under the clear desert sky.

Winter brings crisp, refreshing air and the opportunity to cozy up by the fire after a day of outdoor adventures, making it an ideal time for a peaceful getaway.

Children at the Ranch

Great for children aged 16 and over

Vista Hermosa welcomes families, however, due to the nature of the 5-Day Horse Riding Program, it is recommend that younger riders must be aged 16 or older. This is to ensure the safety of both them and the horse.

For younger riders (16 and above), we suggest a minimum intermediate level of experience and the ability to confidently control their own horse. The trails can be challenging, and it's important that all riders feel comfortable and capable while exploring the beautiful landscapes of southern Arizona.

Please note that while there are no specialized programs for children, older kids and teenagers who meet our riding criteria are welcome to join in on the adventure!

We look forward to sharing the joy of horse back riding with your family at Vista Hermosa!

Minimum age children can ride

16 and over
