Horseback Riding

Woman on Horseback in Nature

If you think four feet are better than two, then saddle up for a horseback ride through Arizona’s beautiful White Mountains!

White Mountain Horseback Trails

Giddy up! The White Mountains Trail System Has More Than 200 miles of non-motorized trails (JPG) for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. Spend the day on horseback and take in the vibrant, live forest on safe, non-motorized and marked trails of the White Mountains Trails System centered in Pinetop-Lakeside.

Your family’s day in the mountains will be made all the more spectacular when you take a short, half-day, or all-day ride over the river and through the woods of the cool-weather White Mountains. Bring your own, or rent a gentle ride from one of our local equestrian facilities.

Horses aren’t just for summers! Nothing compares to a wintry sleigh ride as you and your family are bundled under a stack of blankets and a powerful team of horses pulls you through the snow. Simply the most-romantic evening ever!

For more information, visit the Porter Mountain Stables website or the Pinetop-Lakes Association website.
