Giddyup! Shatterhand Stables opens in Tombstone

Tombstone's new Shatterhand Stables offers regular trail rides for guests looking for an authentic Old West experience. Owners of the stables have plans to offer breakfast and dinner rides with chuck wagon cookouts in the desert.

Shatterhand Stables is housed on-site at the Tombstone RV & Horse Park, owned by Tim and Julia Hastings. Their land is adjacent to Apache Spirit Ranch, a 17-room guest ranch with a re-created Western town.

The stable's name comes from the fictional Native American character "Shatterhand," made famous by German author Karl May (pronounced "my"). May wrote popular novels of cowboys and Indians in Germany in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Guests can ride next to and through Apache Spirit Ranch. Along the way they’ll see old railroad trusses and Native American petroglyphs. The rides traverse desert scrub and washes on 300 acres of privately-owned land.
