HITCHING POST RANCH

AT GENTLEMAN’S ACRES

A HOME OF FINE HORSES & GOOD PEOPLE

ABOUT

Hitching Post Ranch is a 6.2-acre ranch located in the middle of Tucson up against the Rillito Wash and Catalina Foothills with unparalleled riding for miles in either direction. From Tucson Boulevard East to Vail and beyond and west to Catalina and beyond. We have two lighted arenas, two round-pins, 70-total stalls including a shaded ramada for get-togethers.

BOARDING

Hitching Post Ranch has the reputation of an excellent feeding program: We feed alfalfa in the mornings and Bermuda for lunch and dinner, unless your veterinarian or horse history requires different. Also, excellent vets and shoers are also available.

However, this is an open barn, and if the boarder has a special trainer, vet, or shoer they prefer, we welcome them.

EVENTS

July 4th is the annual Stable Party, which is always well attended by old, new and many previous boarders. We have a fun time, and this is just one of many get-togethers throughout the year.

Our Story

Hitching Post Ranch was a working farm since the early 1940’s, with rolling pastures and racehorses – all owned and trained by Col. Fontleroy, a World War I ace.  After his death in 1965 the farm was put up for auction and was purchased by Charles and Jean Bagley.

Over the years many horses were born, trained and boarded here.  However, as the water level dropped it was necessary to build permanent stalls and runs (made out of telephone poles, in keeping with the Western style).

In 1987 the City of Tucson acquired 13 acres, which is now part of the Rio Vista Resource Park.  Since Charles’ death in 1997, nothing has changed; horses are still here and the stable is the home of fine horses and good people.
