Vacation With Your Horse at New Mexico Cabin Rentals

Horseback Ride the Legendary Gila National Forest


The best horseback riding vacations usually happen when you can bring your own horse along on vacation. Double E Ranch and each of our five centrally situated vacation cabins and guesthouses opens access to unlimited riding trails, including Double E Ranch Trail.   Tho' guided rides can be arranged in advance at an additional charge, you and your horse can plan a solo visit or,  gather your horseback buddies, saddle up and experience the beauty, excitement and adventure of the Gila Forest region together.   Steeped in Old West History, at New Mexico Cabin Rentals you will ride the same country once ridden by Billy the Kid, Kit Carson, Geronimo and the Buffalo Soldiers.  Rugged mountains, stunning vistas, intense blue skies, 300 days of sunshine year round and "take your breath away" moments of some of Mother Nature's most unexpected yet touchable scenery provide the perfect backdrop for a horseback riding adventure.  And, the best way to experience southwest New Mexico is from the back of your favorite horse, the original "4-wheel drive".

Horseback riders are responsible for bringing their own feed, tack, grooming supplies (See Suggested List of Items to Bring).  Our local feed and tack store, JS Saddlery, makes it easy to replenish horse feed, tack and other essential horseback riding supplies.  JS Saddlery has custom-made all of the saddles and tack we use.  Some of the very BEST!  Before riding out, take advantage of our 360 acres to accustom your horse for crossing water (Bear Creek).  Remember, our terrain is often rocky.  We recommend your horse be in good condition, comfortable in elevations above 4800' and be shod.

Remember to Reserve Your Cabin with New Mexico Cabin Rentals!!


For those who do not own their own horses, we can suggest the services of a local outfitter who offers guided half and full day rides, with or without lunch, at a very reasonable rate.  A 50% non-refundable deposit is required at the time of booking.  These horseback rides will take you into the eastern area of the Gila National Forest.
