Vacation With Your Horse at New Mexico Cabin Rentals
Bring Your Own Horse and Ride!
Vacation with your horse at New Mexico Cabin Rentals
The best horseback riding vacations usually happen when you can bring your own horse along on vacation. Each of our five centrally situated vacation cabins and opens access to you for exploring unlimited horseback riding. Use the Double E Ranch Trail to begin your Gila horseback trek. From there, the horseback riding is unlimited and you can follow your own path. 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".
