Enjoy the forest from the saddle
Marshal John B. Goodmore

No visit to the West would be complete without seeing at least a portion of the rugged scenery from horseback.

City slickers with no riding experience, or old ranch hands with more time in a saddle than a La-Z-Boy, will find a perfectly-matched mount at Mountain Ranch Stables, six miles east of Williams on Interstate 40 at the Quality Inn Mountain Ranch.

Visitors can choose from a variety of trail rides, ranging from 30 minutes to overnight trips, tailored to the riders' specifications. Regardless of the length of the ride chosen, riders can truly escape today's hectic pace while slipping quietly into the tall pines of Kaibab National Forest.

Helping make the ride pleasurable and safe is stable owner and operator John Moore, along with several wranglers who know the area. Riders will also get a good dose of Western folklore, which Moore and his wranglers are always happy to share.

The stable operates daily, weather permitting. Reservations are recommended but not always necessary.

Call (928) 635-0706 for reservations or visit www.mountainranchstables.com.
