"Can I have a pony" might be the most common question on a child's birthday, but certainly "Can we go on a pony ride" is one you can say YES to if you are in the Tuscon area!
Pantano Riding Stables are a great way to discover the southwest - but on horseback! It's actually a family owned and run stable and trail experience, so you know you will be in good, family sized hands when you get there.
The great thing about Pantano Riding Stables, is that it's perfect for all ages and experiences - so the whole family can take part. Those little animal lovers under 5 years have pony rides to fill their day, and those over 6 can ride the bigger horses, and even ride their own horse if they have them.
Pantano Riding Stables offer up a great outdoor adventure, and why wouldn't you with that amazing Arizona weather! If you LOVE animals like we do, then you will love being surrounded by beautiful horses - all different sizes and colors. Don't forget to ask their name so you can say hellO!
Not only are there rides in the desert, but there are also sunset trail rides, and summer kids camps too!
Want to hear something ELSE really cool? There are wagon hay-rides that you can enjoy, and even combine your trail ride with a dinner so you can camp out under the stars! There are also park rides to explore Saguaro National Park too if you wanted to see that little bit more of the area.
Horses, desert, wagon and campouts - yes please (and yee haw!)
