We are located north of Harcuvar, Arizona, just 2 miles West of Salome, Arizona, on Highway 60, north of the r/r tracks at the crossing near MP 54.
We do require a current Health Certificate and Coggins for out of state horses to be produced on arrival.
We have 6 acres in the middle of desert land, 3 acres are into horse facilities and the rest is desert landscaped.
We have a 100' x 200' riding arena, with 2" of washed sand as footing, 3 rail vinyl white fence. This year we built some jumping standards and have some barrels if you want to do some practicing here. We also have the arena fences marked with dressage letters for convenience.
Riding lessons are also available, from beginners on up, on your own horse.
We have 7 covered stalls, several other turnout areas, a round pen.
The barnyard has two covered stalls and an area around it.
There is lots of space in the yard to park and turn around. You can spend the night, or the winter. We have an outdoor port-a-john for riders convenience. In the past we have had horses boarded here and their owners have an rv or have rented a place in the area . The Desert Gem RV Park (www.desertgemrvpark.com) is located just across the highway, a 7 minute walk from Spirit Ranch, and they have all facilities there, laundry, showers, dump station, card room, full hookups.
The arena is in great shape so if you want to work there, lots of room and good footing.
Pastures are stoney and the trails are rocky, so plan on keeping your horses shod. We can put you in contact with a local farrier.
There is a large animal vet in Wickenburg, an hour away. And a new vet out of Wickenburg who will come to Salome.
We are happy to accommodate you for whatever length of time you wish to stay, overnight, a week, a month or the entire winter. We are in the process of installing 50 amp hookups to accommodate rigs of all sizes. There is plenty of room for parking. Our property is gated and secure.
You can fill your water tanks with our good well water when you leave.
We will feed for you if you want to take a drive and enjoy the area and think you won't be back by feeding time.
We are adjacent to hundreds of acres of State Land and miles and miles of quad trails so there is plenty of riding right out from our gate.
The scenery here is absolutely wonderful. Take your camera when you ride. You just never know what you will see out in the desert. Everything from tiny lizards, jackrabbits, quail, tarantulas , of course snakes in the hotter weather, javelina to mule deer. Maybe even a wild burro if you travel high enough into the mountains.
Trailering out just a few miles will take you to many more trails in the area. Riding is endless.
The sunrises and sunsets are breath taking to say the least.In Aguila, just 30 miles by good highway (60) to the east, is a huge team roping arena, if that is your forte. We've heard they have 300 teams in a day during the week, and that prizes are very good. Competition is pretty good also so we've heard.
We are an hour West of Wickenburg, an hour East of Blythe, CA, and an hour south of Parker, Arizona. Easy access to I-10 via Vicksburg Road. So, you see, we are centrally located and an easy trailer ride to any activities.
Wickenburg is the closest town with large grocery store chains, is trying to preserve its "old west" heritage. It has a rodeo frequently as well as a wonderful museum, which is a MUST for visitors to the area.

In Salome there are a couple of gasoline stations, with diesel, and a grocery store. Not a large store, but you can get just about anything you want there. We have a Napa business and a hardware store so plan on staying at Spirit Ranch and spend awhile. We are located about 2 miles West of the Village of Salome, near MP 54, north of the RR tracks. Call for complete directions. Phone numbers are on the "Rates" page.
We have had several travelers who brought their horses for the winter and have since bought property in the area. We get to ride with some of them quite often and that is a really neat treat.
