Take Lessons at Local Horseback Riding Stables in Peoria

The Three Best Horseback Riding Stables in Peoria

There's a heavenly feeling of freedom that comes from horseback riding. Nothing beats the thrill of racing across an open field. Luckily for equestrian lovers, there are numerous stables near our apartments in Peoria that provide top-notch experiences.

MacDonald's Ranch

Known as the premier horseback riding stable in Arizona, MacDonald's Ranch offers packages for everyone, ranging from corporate groups to individuals. Their horseback riding experiences are memorable, and include moonlight rides, which offer you a magnificent luminescent glow view of the desert, and a trip to the Valley of the Sun for a beautiful and peaceful sundowner. They also have a petting zoo, picnic tables for private functions, and unique events like their cowboy cookout. For a seamless experience, be sure to book your reservation in advance.

White Stallion Ranch

The horse riding experiences at the White Stallion Ranch are one-of-a-kind. Enjoy wine tasting at the end of their Wine and Cheese Rides, or ice-cold beers and snacks provided in their Beer & Cheetos Rides. You can also visit famous Hollywood filming sites on horseback across the rugged Tucson Mountains. Additionally, they provide team competition packages like the team penning adrenaline-filled activity in their rodeo arena. 

New to horse riding? The ranch has lessons for different levels and an option of half or full-day rides based on your energy levels. It is important to note that they are closed on Sundays, a great initiative to give the horses a break.

Cuadra San Benito

You can enjoy horseback rides across an expansive stretch of land with the friendly and well-behaved horses at Cuadra San Benito. Their skilled trainers have experience in beginner and seasoned riding, guaranteeing proper lessons for any level. They also offer training for horses, making it a horse owner's paradise should you wish to have your horse trained. Furthermore, it is one of the few places that provide horse boarding facilities in addition to horse riding.

Before you go for your horseback riding, enjoy a hearty breakfast at one of these top breakfast spots in Peoria to have enough energy for your fun-filled day on the ranch. For more details about adventures in Peoria and our Peoria apartments, please don't hesitate to contact our team.
