About Us

The Setting

 Come and partake in the beauty of Arizona, in such a way that cannot be experienced from the road, but only from horseback. Saddle up and join us as we unlock the beauty that remains hidden from the surface streets and cities.  You will ride over hills, through valleys, down ravines, through washes, and up draws.  When you stop to water your horse at a stock tank that cattle and working cowboys only once knew about, take a moment to notice the calmness and peacefulness that surrounds you. It’s that tranquility, some say that is worth its weight in gold.  So, join in the camaraderie with your fellow riders and share in the experience that we call The Mesquite Trail Ride

The Fun

Everybody likes to have fun so we do it right at Mesquite Trail Ride.  Every day we start with a potluck style breakfast you bring it we cook it.  The daily rides are planned to fit all styles of riding.  Afternoons are made for riding more or napping more you get to decide what you want to do. 

 Evenings are FUN, FUN, FUN.  We start with social hour and roll right on through the evening with fully catered delicious dinner, live music and an open dance floor. There's raffles and auctions that always keep us entertained. An occasional joke or two. Bottom line there's never a shortage of laughter especially if YOU decide YOU want to partake in the fun.
