Mustang & Massage Horseback Riding Vacation
Spend the morning on horseback in search of the 1,500 wild horses that roam the Gila River Indian Community and enjoy an afternoon of luxurious pampering with this one of a kind package offered at Aji Spa. Cowboys from the Equestrian Center will greet you on horseback for a 1.5 hour ride through ancient tribal lands. Keep an eye out for a coveted view of these amazing animals before returning to the spa. Indulge in the sanctuary of Aji Spa for the rest of the day while enjoying a saddle-soothing 50-minute full body massage (excludes Watsu) and delicious lunch at Aji Cafe.
SIX GUN THEATER AND RAWHIDE ROUGHRIDERS
If your kid’s like cowboy culture they might enjoy the stunt show – personally, I have not yet visited the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort. Watch wild West gunfights, explosions, daring falls, and cowboy antics. Show offerings and times vary from day to day.
BURRO RIDES Located outside the Sunset Patio, Buckaroos can ride through town on the back of a burro. Weight restrictions apply -we need to be kind to animals.
DESERT TRAIN RIDE By starlight or sunshine, ride an Old West train on the outskirts of Rawhide’s Main Street.
BUTTERFIELD STAGECOACH Guests may experience the Sonoran Desert by stagecoach, the way early settlers once did. Your ride, guided by a trained mule team, meanders through Sonoran Desert trails.
Cowboys and cowgirls will want to visit Rawhide’s Petting Zoo. Kids of all ages may visit and pet miniature donkeys, pot belly pigs, sheep and goats.
