Hideout Ranch Expanding
Hideout Ranch will expand this fall to include the new "Red Dog Saloon" (right) and a Line Shack, another guest room for horseback riding vacationers. Guests at Hideout Ranch receive individualized instructions - whether they're experienced on horseback or "city slickers."
After your day of riding, you’ll be able to enjoy an ice cold beer or cocktail inside The Red Dog Saloon or outside on the wraparound porch as you gaze out on Arizona’s stunning mountain landscape.
Guests who stay in the new Line Shack, right, will enjoy a private deck that looks south through the valley floor. The Line Shack will accommodate one or two guests. With the addition of the Line Shack, Hideout Ranch will be able to accommodate up to six guests on-site. Owners Tamara and Craig Lawson expect Hideout’s new additions to be complete by October 2013.
Not familiar with Hideout Ranch? It is located on the eastern side of the Chiricahua Mountains just off Highway 80 north of Douglas. The staff invites guests to "Hideout... on Horseback" and escape city life on the eastern side of the Chiricahua Mountains. They want to show you the West from the back of a horse. Whether you’re a novice or you’ve always ridden, they’ll help you get in touch with your “inner cowboy.”
For the City Slickers
Don't let the fact that you're a novice rider stop you from enjoying southern Arizona's big skies and rugged beauty. The staff at Hideout Ranch will give you all the horseback riding basics you'll need. They will work with you in the corral to acquaint you with horseback essentials. Their stable of sure-footed horses can help you gain more confidence as you learn more skills on the trail.
If you've been riding horses for years, you won’t be bored at Hideout Ranch. You can arrange a ride deep into Cochise County's beautiful sky island country to see beautiful sights. Some of Hideout Ranch’s favorite rides include trips into Fort Bowie National Historic Site, Cochise Stronghold, Camp Rucker, and Chiricahua National Monument.
If you want to truly experience the Apacheria Wilderness, why not try an overnight? Ride for hours, and then bed down around the campfire after a delicious range dinner. You’ll drift to sleep with the sounds of horses shuffling on the picket line, and wake up to the bracing aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the glow of the sun on the pines of the Chiricahua or Peloncillo Mountains.
Hideout Ranch supplies the gear. You bring your riding jeans, low-heeled shoes, and the willingness to learn.
