No trip to Tucson would be complete without experiencing the flavor of the West by horseback.

Pantano Riding Stables, a reputable family owned business, caters to riders on all skill levels. A large variety of horses are available to accomodate every type of rider.

Dress for the season but remember to wear slacks, if at all possible, whatever the temperature (no side saddle sissies here). Bring a water bottle and wear a baseball style cap. Stampede strings are required with western hats. No “flip-flop” sandals, high heels or strapless shoes allowed for your safety. We recommend sneakers or hiking boots. Sunscreen is advised for all Tucson outings.

Children 5 and older may ride on their own or have a wrangler “pony” ( lead) their horse during trails. Children under the age of five must ride with a wrangler.

Enjoy a romantic Sunset Ride or join a group of friends for a combination trail ride and dinner. Have lunch with the hired hands during the cooler months.
