Flagstaff’s Hitchin Post Stables
Come on out and enjoy Flagstaff, Arizona’s only equestrian activity. Surround yourself in nature with fragrant pine scents, wooded areas and one of Arizona’s finest canyons; all atop a well-mannered and sure footed trail horse. The views and the serenity of the Coconino National Forest are spectacular and awaiting you.
As you ride through the 10,000 acre pine forest just south of Walnut Canyon National Monument keep a watchful eye for spotting a bull elk, porcupine or bobcat. The entire area you’ll be riding through is designated semi-primitive and does not allow motorized vehicles. This means you will thoroughly enjoy the peaceful serenity of your surroundings.
Our Wagon Rides and Sleigh Rides (done seasonally) will take you a short way into the Coconino National Forest to our forest campsite. There you will enjoy a big campfire, refreshments (hot cocoa and heated tents the winter) and historic wagons all amongst the pines. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy our site and stretch your legs before loading back up and heading back to the Ranch completing a large loop – which means you won’t see the same thing twice!
Our Trail Rides are spectacular. You can get your feet wet with our one hour that will take you deep enough into the forest to appreciate your surroundings and enjoy your time while there. Our two hour allows you a dip down into a canyon opening up into a beautiful meadow and returning you to the ranch completing a large loop.
If you wish to experience a bit more of mother nature, our three hour trail ride will get you to the Fisher Point Overlook that has stunning views of Walnut Canyon while our 4 hour trail ride will get you to Fisher Point as well as back down and into Walnut Canyon for a visit to a natural cave.
If a Cowboy Cookout is what you’re looking for, you’ve found the right place. We can add a hot breakfast or lunch (seasonally) or dinner (year round) to any of our activities – wagon rides, sleigh rides, and trail rides. Please check out what our menu is and reserve online by selecting your activity with the type of meal you’d like, prices are all inclusive.
