Let's Go Horseback Riding
Try something a little different and see all the things you’re missing from your highway travel.
Our Wranglers would love to take you on a wonderful horseback ride through some of the most beautiful and majestic landscape Arizona has to offer. We ride on trails in the 10,000 acre Coconino National Forest which includes the scenic Arizona Trail, Fisher Point and Walnut Canyon. This entire area was the former home of cliff and cave dwelling Native Americans.
As you ride through the fragrant pine forest, just southwest of the Walnut Canyon National Monument, keep a watchful eye for a possible sighting of the cliff dwellers former homes. You may also see a bull elk, porcupine or bobcat as you head towards the beautiful Walnut Canyon. The entire area is designated semi-primitive and is non-motorized so you can enjoy the peaceful serenity of your surroundings.
If you want to experience the best horses, best scenery, best wranglers, and best horseback riding in the Grand Canyon/Flagstaff area, then you don't want to miss a day at Hitchin' Post Stables.
Call today and reserve your time to ride in this beautiful and historic wilderness.
We have a horse for every rider, whether you're 8 or 88..... we have the perfect mount for you. Ride through some of northern Arizona's most beautiful scenery. Feel at home with your expert wrangler as he or she guides you through breathtaking canyons and parks. If you watch closely, you may see wildlife in abundance. We know you will enjoy the ride on our top-quality animals.
What People Are Saying About
Hitchin' Post Stables
"A Great Day Horseback Riding! We are a family of seven with kids ranging from 7 to 18. We did a 2 hour ride. The wranglers were engaging with every age, cautious (since we were beginners) and fun. We all had a blast and will remember this trip forever. They were so accommodating, telling us the best picture spots even lining us up on our horses for a beautiful shot of the family on horses with the spectacular views behind us. The horses were beautiful and well cared for. This was a great experience all around." Written by Lenieandrew.
"So Much Fun! We felt very pampered on this ranch as we enjoyed a wagon ride into the woods and then a delicious dinner when we returned. I have a bit of a fear of horses, but I actually got along side a beautiful black and white horse and had my picture taken. Thanks for the patience of all the ranch hands. Even the "Big Boss" asked us how our experience had been! We loved our time there. Food was outstanding. You won't be disappointed." Written by Suz E.
"Excellent! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, making this day so much fun for our family! The horses were healthy, you could tell they were cared for and loved by the way the staff handled them. The area was well maintained and the scenic ride was beautiful. I would highly recommend Hitchin' Post Stables!"
"This was a great family Outing! We took our 5 year old to Hitchin Post to see if he'd like to ride with us. Julianne was very helpful and understanding when our little one decided not to ride, so she introduced him to the stable's resident donkey and goats. He also watched a big horse have its shoes changed while my husband and I rode with Tim for an hour (our son was with his babysitter - the stables don't do childcare). Tim was fun and informative. We had a great time and plan to go back to see if we can get our son on one of their sweet ponies." Written by David Wheeler
"This was a great experience! I took my whole family of 10 on a horseback riding adventure today. Most of us have never ridden a horse before and I got two small girls around the age of 5 and boys 8 and 9. Tim and Juliann were great and experienced wranglers. They paired all of us with the right horses to match our personalities, weight and size… Of course for the first timers and especially the smaller kids had some trouble maneuvering their horses but Tim and Juliann did an amazing job by managing the situation and easing their fears. One example of this is, Juliann even sung Disney favorite princess songs to the girls keeping them entertained. What a delight! I recommend anyone vacationing in Flagstaff and want to do some horseback riding to check out Hitchin' Post Stables." Written by David T.
"Perfect Experience for First Time Riders! We called Hitchin' Post early in the morning to see if they could fit us in and they said we could leave almost immediately. We booked just a 1-hr ride for two adults and our first timer sons, aged 10 & 12. After a quick check-in, they helped us mount up and my boys were instantly at ease on the gentle horses. The ride itself was beautiful, a peaceful trail through the forest with enough gentle hills to keep things interesting. Tim, the guide, was courteous and friendly, chatting about himself, the horses and filling us in on Flagstaff. Could not recommend it more and will definitely come back for a longer ride. Perfect for families with kids and even larger groups or corporate outings. Wish we had time for a bonfire, wagon ride or more." Written by Ewing
"Awesome Trail Ride! The stables are in a beautiful and scenic place where you can go for trail rides every day of the year. My friend and I rode with Wrangler Makayla last week and I liked it so much that I brought my teenage daughters there for yet another ride yesterday. Our guide was JulieAnn and we had wonderful horses, an educational conversation with our guide, and really enjoyed our time. I can only highly recommend this place and look forward to a sleigh ride in the winter." Written by Carmen Lame
