Keen to expand on its portfolio of authentic US ranches, Ranch Rider will be introducing Arizona’s Hideout Working Ranch in its 2017 brochure, which is situated near Portal near the New Mexico border.
Tony Daly, the company's managing director, said: “The majority of our clients are in search of a genuine cowboy experience - authentic travel a key driver of bookings. At this ranch it's all about the cattle and horses, but the property is also strategically located on a treasure trove of Wild West history. Guests will feel as though they are riding through an open air museum, many of these mountain trails and high desert paths not covered by any other ranch in Southeastern Arizona.”
The list of historical places visited on horseback includes Skeleton Canyon, where Geronimo surrendered; Fort Bowie, where the US army forged battles against the Apache Indians; and the Cochise stronghold, once the summer home of the Chiricahua Apaches. Still sacred to the Native American tribe, Cochise is said to be buried in the exact same location.
Home to 400 head of pure bred Black Angus & Texas Longhorn cattle, guests can also work the herd. A seven-night stay leads in at £1,699 per person based on two sharing including ensuite cabin accommodation, all meals, most ranch activities, use of facilities including fully stocked saloon and taxes. Prices exclude transfers (available from Tucson), gratuities and flights.
