Rough Riders/Best of the Circle Z Season Finale

Rough Riders/Old Hands Week
Featuring the Best of the Circle Z Season Finale!

The newest special at the ranch, and one to be an old hand favorite, is our Rough Riders/Best of the Circle Z Season Finale. This week is geared towards guests who are wanting more adventure in their riding and are at least intermediate riders. To make sure a guest will get the most out of the week, our managers will help you decide if this is a good fit.

This years Rough Riders Week, we entertained 16 guests. The first ride, to everyone’s delight, was not the usual walking ride, but a loping ride for those who wanted! Because this is a week where we know all the guests are competent riders and are known by the wranglers, we gave more lee-way to our staff for turning it up a notch

During our steak night cook out on Monday, we invited musician Joe Barr to entertain the guests during the meal. This made a wonderful backdrop of music while we dined on the ever delicious steak night dinner.

On Tuesday, we took guests to the Wagon Wheel Bar. Although the day was windy, the views and sky were just amazing. Many said it was the best ride ever! Because of the abilities of the riders, we did a little more exploring and bush waking on our way, discovering a few new trails in the process.

On Thursday evening, after the all-day ride to Castle Butte, the ranch hosted Margarita Party during Cantina Hour.

The highlight of the week was the Red Rocks/San Rafael Valley ride. This ride is about 6 hours long and is definitely a ride for competent riders. With one of our deliciously prepared sack lunches securely packed, we loaded the horses and headed to the trail head of the Arizona Trail. The views on this trail are stunning, starting a winding uphill climb past beautiful red rock cliffs with Red Mountain in the backdrop. We end the ride up in the San Rafael Valley.

Our week ended with the Sonoita Horse Races and our Cinco De Mayo  party. The excitement built all week as our Wrangler Omar worked to get his horse Canejo (Rabbit) ready for the Big  Boy Ranch Horse Race, and boy did he do a spectacular job, beating out 6 other ranch horses to take home the trophy.

One thing we will be adding next year is having Mariachi’s Play for our Cinco De Mayo Party.

The best thing about this week was the camaraderie among the guests and staff. There was a lot of laughter and stories being told and some great riding! We look forward to offering this week every year during our final week of the season, a great way to celebrate a successful year.

Circle Z Ranch Announces Winter Specials for 2017-2018 Season

p1020754Visiting a guest ranch in the Winter is honestly one of the best vacations you can gift to yourself and your family. An all-inclusive ranch vacation is not always an economical adventure, and at first glance the rates can look ominous. But time after time, old hands and new guests tell us they feel they get more value for the price they pay of visiting the Circle Z Ranch than with any other vacation. And that says a lot!

Just imagine being on vacation where your only decisions are should you take the morning and afternoon ride, or be more adventurous on the all-day ride? Should you watch your waistline at breakfast and eat oatmeal, or live a little with the fresh baked pastries, freshly prepared egg dishes and bacon? Would you sit on your porch and read that book that has been collecting dust for too long, or to join the other guests at cocktail hour? The beauty of a guest ranch is that it is like summer camp for kids, where everything is provided and you can be as active or as relaxed as you want. And we don’t nickel and dime you along the way. Your weekly rate covers everything: Meals, horseback riding, lodging, lessons, swimming pool, tennis courts, guided nature walks and astronomy nights, campfires and musical entertainment. And that, my friends, is the way to spend a vacation.

For those wanting to catch a break, we understand, so we offer 2 periods during our 6 month operating season where we reduce rates 10-15%.
