For families who fancy themselves as budding lone rangers, you can try your hand at all the essential cowboy skills at the Tanque Verde Ranch in Arizona. It’s one of America’s oldest ranches and a great place to learn to ride if you are just a beginner, or to hone your horsemanship skills whilst riding out into the 640 acre farm situated in the foothills of the Rincorn Mountains. There are lessons and rides every day as well as hiking, biking, tennis, nature trails, western crafts, hot tub and swimming pools all of which the kids can enjoy as part of the ‘Buckaroo’ and ‘Wrangler’ kids programmes which will keep them busy all day so you can enjoy the luxury treatments at the onsite Sonora Spa. You can round off the days with barbeques and luminous wild west sunsets, plus you can even go all out and try your hand at a little line dancing if you fancy it.
