Road Scholar
Program #20193RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience a Wild West adventure at the renowned White Stallion Ranch, a working ranch at the foot of the ruggedly beautiful Tucson Mountains. Take easy trail rides, hear the history of the ranch from owner Russell True, and lend a hand with grooming and feeding ranch animals. Cowboy songs around a bonfire complete this adventure to discover your inner cowboy or cowgirl.


Highlights

• Enjoy scenic trail rides on gentle horses, breakfast and lunch cookouts, a hayride, and a desert nature walk.
• Learn how to handle a lasso, communicate with horses, watch horse-roping and penning demonstrations, and see how a horse is “shod.”
• Enjoy evenings learning how to “do-si-do” in country western dance lessons, stargazing at the stunning night sky with a local astronomer, and entertainment by a cowboy singer and "Wild West Show."

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles, riding a horse.

Coordinated by Road Scholar.
