Bring your equine friends with you for some trail riding, or find outfitters for guided rides and horse rentals
Where to ride
Horses are permitted in the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation area, except in archeological and historic sites and on trails posted with restrictions. You’ll find maps of the trails along the San Pedro helpful.
Horses are also permitted on the trails of the Coronado National Forest, unless there are signs stating otherwise. And for a true horseback experience, consider the 800-mile Arizona Trail and ride the state from the Arizona/Mexico border to Utah near the Grand Canyon.
