Tanque Verde Ranch is a premiere Arizona guest ranch resort, offering fantastic horseback riding, tennis, guided hiking, mountain biking, nature walks and other nature programs, as well as a fully supervised children's program! If you're looking for a ranch vacation or country getaway, look no further! This Arizona ranch, located in the lush Sonoran desert, offers the best of a Southwestern resort, along with a historic ranch experience. The facilities include indoor and outdoor heated pools, a separate children's wading pool, and an exercise room. A large Jacuzzi and men's and ladies' saunas provide the perfect way to relax after a long day in the saddle! For an additional fee, championship golf is nearby, and in-room massage can be arranged. There are 5 tennis courts, including one Omni artificial turf court which is lighted for nightplay, and a staff tennis pro to help you with your game! Basketball, volleyball, and catch & release fishing are also available, and the ranch provides all the equipment.
The fully supervised children's program provides a fantastic ranch experience for kids ages 4 through 11. Kids 12 years old and up may opt in or out of the program. The program is divided into two age groups, the 4-6 year olds (Buckaroos) and the 7-11 year olds (Wrangler Kids). The younger ones do most of their riding in the arena, with ranch Counselors working with them to develop their riding proficiency toward going out on the trails, whereas the Wrangler Kids will have a more active riding program geared to their mental and physical capabilities. This group has daily riding lessons, and both beginning and advanced rides. Parents may ride with their kids if they wish. The program is very active, incorporating riding along with tennis, swimming, nature programs, games, arts and crafts, and other activities for a vacation experience that will not soon be forgotten! (This program requires your child's active participation. This is not a babysitting service)
