All our horses were excellent. My daughters were new to riding and they advanced to loping and even in the creek. The food was so good that we ate full plates every night but with the exercise of riding, we did not put on weight.

I've been visiting Circle Z since 1989, and it my favorite place in the world. The managers, George and Jennie, have been there for over 40 years, and treat all the guests like family. The accommodations are comfortable with fantastic beds, and the food is delicious. The horses are top notch and each ride is more beautiful than the next....

We've been coming to Circle Z for many years now and it keeps on getting better. The Nash family have preserved this oasis in southern Arizona with fun for all.
