What does this experience look like? You choose! If you desire to spend an entire day learning how to train horses, you got it. If you'd prefer to visit different ranches and help work cattle, we'll plan it. Or, if you just want to be on a horse in the woods, with our new Exclusive Ranch Experience you and your family create the plan you desire. You will be the only reservation. Simply fill your days from the options above.
Since our cabins are closed for the winter, we're teaming with Reed's Lodge who is offering a 10% discount if you book a hotel room with them as a Sprucedale Guest. We also suggest X Diamond Ranch and Greer Lodge if you prefer to rent a cabin with a kitchen. Our Exclusive Ranch Experience does not include lodging. You decide where you stay.
The base price of $500 per person includes a three day experience. Each day will begin at 10 am at the Sprucedale Equestrian Center and end at approximately 4 pm. Trail lunches are the only meal provided. The first morning will be a mandatory rider warm-up to show the wrangler your horsemanship skills and abilities. After that, your adventure will be decided by you!
Once your equestrian appetite has been sufficiently satisfied, there are many things to see and do in the area to round out your vacation. Sunrise Ski Resort is only 30 minutes from Eagar. There are some great historical sights nearby, including the Casa Malpias Ruins, Sipes Ranch, and the Petrified Forest. When it comes to meals, local restaurants like Booga Reds, Avery's BBQ, Trailriders, and Molly Butlers all have food that make me salivate just thinking about them.
Come sample a new flavor of Sprucedale and the White Mountain region of Arizona. You will not be disappointed.
