The M Diamond Ranch was recommended by a family member who insisted we go. We were picked up at our hotel by the van driver (thank goodness because it would have been difficult to find it). My husband and I (and our two kids, age 9 and 11) were not experienced riders but the horses were well mannered and gentle. We rode for about one hour through some incredibly scenic trails at dusk and it was just magnificent! We stayed for the Cowboy dinner and loved the experience. Alvie Self was gracious and welcoming and sang beautifully. The staff made us a delicious steak dinner as we watched the sun set over Sedona. We learned how to rope and played horseshoes and had an incredible evening! I would do it over in a second and would recommend it highly to anyone and everyone!!! Thank you M Diamond Ranch for a wonderful experience...from Bruce our interesting and knowledgable van driver, to Bil who entertained us on our ride to the wonderful staff that made dinner and desert.... A Big Thank You!!!!
