History of Stagecoach Trails Guest Ranch

Please read the "Impossible Dream Isn't"
By: Carrie Rynders for an understanding on how Stagecoach Trails Guest Ranch was born.

Stagecoach Trails is a guest ranch located in Northwest Arizona that opened in December of 2000. Your owners/hosts, Dan and Carrie Rynders along with their disabled daughter Amy invite you to try this special guest ranch! We welcome all travelers to come and experience our dude ranch where the Old West blends with the new. The staff at Stagecoach Trails will do everything they can to make sure everyone who stays here has the most memorable western experience possible! Come see how the west is really fun!

Guest ranches, or dude ranches as they are more commonly known, have been around since the late 1800's. Guests want a glimpse into the past, and this is a wonderful way for them to do that. The overnight stay at our dude ranch includes all meals including delicious desserts (always home cooked), horseback riding and other ranch activities. TheCowboy on horseback with sunset horseback riding program varies from slow and scenic, to challenging mountain rides and advanced loping rides in sandy washes. There are also lunch rides (seasonal), “cactus” rides and specialty rides. Evening entertainment, including cowboy singers, campfires with storytelling, line dancing and games nights (horseshoes, Catch Phrase, billiards tournaments to name a few), will be provided on some nights. Over the years we have found that most often guests like to just sit, relax and play games by themselves, gaze at the star studded skies or enjoy fireside conversations with all their new friends. There is a swimming pool, hot-tub and a variety of game options such as ping pong, basketball, volleyball, billiards and horseshoes. The main focus is the horseback riding program as well as the beautiful desert and mountain scenery. Our remote location not only provides beautiful unobstructed views of the surrounding desert scenery, but it also provides a quiet and peaceful atmosphere without city lights and noisy traffic so you can truly get in touch with nature and enjoy God’s desert creation.

Dude ranches in Arizona have been popular since their conception. Guests come from all over the world to experience a western vacation and pretend to be cowboys and cowgirls for a little while. People come to dude/guest ranches because they are becoming increasingly aware of the loss of quality time to relax with their families and enjoy time together without TV’s or the intrusion of the outside world. They are also becoming more demanding of quality facilities where they can relax, forget about the hustle and bustle of the business world for awhile, be pampered and enjoy the great outdoors by horseback. Stagecoach Trails is the perfect place to do just that! We are offering an "old west experience" with a modern, yet intimate setting for a family oriented vacation. And remember, families, couples, singles and groups (corporate, family and friends) are always welcome!

Guest ranches in Arizona are by no means a thing of the past. On the contrary, they are a glimpse into the past, but with all the modern amenities that we have become accustomed to. Vacationers are always looking for a unique travel experience and our dude ranch will be able to offer that. In addition to offering a completely barrier-free vacation (see features for disabled), there are many opportunities to experience away from the ranch for our disabled and able-bodied guests other than riding. These include a day trip to the Grand Canyon, fishing on the Colorado River, golfing at nearby golf courses, visiting a local gold mining town, seeing the famous London Bridge in Lake Havasu City or getting your kicks on Route 66!
