Only 2 hours south of Las Vegas and 2 hours from the Grand Canyon West Rim, this family ranch is dedicated to providing guests with one of the best dude ranch vacations you can find. They have worked hard to create a special, friendly atmosphere where you can get a glimpse into the old west while enjoying the beautiful NW Arizona desert and all the peace and quiet one could hope for. They invite you to stay with them and be part of their guest ranch family, even if it is only for a little while.
Ride in the beautiful Arizona desert with their friendly wranglers who have made dude ranches their home for years. For the beginner rider they offer slow scenic rides among the cactus landscape. Unlike many other dude ranches, they offer the more experienced riders trotting and loping in the desert washes. Their ranch borders over 360,000 acres of natural western desert beauty at the foot of the Mohave and Hualapai mountains. You can be assured of breathtaking views, constant sunny days and a fantastic family dude ranch vacation.
Because the founder’s oldest daughter Amy is in a wheelchair, they have first hand knowledge of the needs of disabled guests. Stagecoach has been designed and built to be fully handicapped accessible. This gives them the unique ability to offer a completely barrier-free vacation to all disabled travelers and their families. Stagecoach Trails has been a pioneer in offering this unparalleled travel opportunity to all guests with special needs. All buildings and outdoor areas were built with the disabled concerns in mind. They took extra care to assure there are no barriers anywhere at the ranch.
Their guest rooms and bathrooms are larger than the current accessibility codes call for with either roll-in showers or ADA tubs and hand held showers in each one. The lodge and dining room have plenty of room for wheelchairs to move about freely and all public bathrooms are handicapped accessible as well. They also provide accessible riding equipment so that everyone has the ability to participate in the riding program if they so desire. Depending on their ability, disabled guests can choose to experience a ride in the desert or a ride in our arena.
To assure safety, all riders with special needs will take their first ride in our small arena so their riding ability can be assessed before going out on the trails. They have a ramp for wheelchairs or riders needing extra assistance so that mounting the horse will be almost as easy as getting in a car. They want everyone to experience riding a horse no matter what their disability is. The wranglers and horses are well-trained and have a warm and caring disposition so that each riding experience will be enjoyable. For the safety of disabled guests they have a 150 lbs weight limit for guests with disabilities to ride horses.
