Horseback Riding

Seeing the beauty of the Gila from horseback is a truly tremendous opportunity. We have used and recommend Wolfhorse Outfitters, located just outside Silver City in the Arenas Valley. They “offer customized guided wilderness adventures expertly designed to concentrate on the surrounding environment, plant and animal identification methods as well as seasonal foraging techniques. Accommodating all levels of experience from beginners to advanced riders who just want to “cover some ground” –  from the occasional hiker to “trail munchers” – a customized  adventure will enhance your personal vacation.”

This Native American outfitter will help you see the Gila Wilderness in a special way only possible on horseback. Your horseback adventure includes guides with knowledge of the flora, fauna, and history of the region. The sights and the stories will keep you amazed throughout the ride for an unforgettable experience!

Another local horseback riding outfitters convenient to Sapillo Creek Escape is the Gila Hot Springs Ranch. Located on the way to the Gila Cliff Dwellings, the ranch is owned by the same family which own’s Doc Campbell’s and the Gila Hot Springs. If you are looking for a small bit of adventure, the ranch offers full or half day trail rides, suitable for the whole family. They can accommodate any rider level, from novice to advanced. Horses are suitably matched to your riding ability to assure you the utmost enjoyment.
