Saddle up and gather, drive, rope and brand cattle, just the way it's been done on the Horseshoe Ranch for more than 100 years. Wash away each day's cowboy dirt with a hot shower, relax by the pool or under a shady tree. End each day in the comfort of your private room, tastefully decorated in Southwestern style. We're an hour's drive north of Phoenix, just 5 miles east of highway I-17. Whether tenderfoot or top hand there will be plenty to do on this 74,000 acre working ranch. So come on out and "Cowboy up" with us.

Circle Z Ranch is 60 miles south of Tucson and 15 miles north of the Mexican Border. Founded in 1925, it lies in a valley formed by the Patagonia and Santa Rita mountains, and is watered by the ever-flowing Sonoita River nurturing sycamore and cottonwood stands. The ranch has an informal air with few organized activities except riding which is twice daily and geared to both the novice and expert. Accommodations are in attractively furnished adobe cottages. Bird watchers discover exciting new species; there is a heated pool and tennis court. Reached by major airlines into Tucson or by private plane into Nogales, the drive to the ranch is not difficult and a good way to see some of the exceptional beauty of Arizona. Betsy and Bryan Laselle, Managers.
