Horseback Riding Vacations in Tucson, AZ

As wonderful as backcountry hikes, mountain-biking forays, scenic drives, and sightseeing overflights are, it’s hard to imagine a more romantic way to see the Sonoran Desert and its sky-island mountains than by horseback. Call the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa your Tucson-area home away from home, and you’ll be just a stone’s throw from one of the region’s best stables: Spanish Trail Outfitters(8500 E. Ocotillo Drive). And other fine trail-riding opportunities are just about as easy to take advantage of!

Spanish Trail Outfitters

Spanish Trail Outfitters offers a variety of rides backdropped by the Santa Catalina Mountains just minutes from our resort. These include daytime tours as well as a popular sunset outing that soaks up Sonoran Desert scenery burnished in some ethereal evening light.

Towering saguaro cacti, shady groves of mesquite, the site of an ancient Hohokam village: These rides show off some fantastic vistas and desert character!
