HITCHING POST RANCH

AT GENTLEMAN’S ACRES

HOME OF FINE HORSES & GOOD PEOPLE

ABOUT

Hitching Post Ranch is a 6.2-acre family-owned and operated ranch. We’re conveniently located in central Tucson up against the Rillito Wash and Catalina Foothills with unparalleled trail riding for miles.

We have two lighted arenas, two round-pens, 70 stalls, tack rooms, an obstacle course, and a shaded ramada for community or rented events.

BOARDING

Hitching Post Ranch has the reputation of an excellent feeding program, customized for your horse. We also have excellent vets and farriers available, as well as horse training lessons to ensure your and your horse’s safety.

However, this is an open barn, and if you have a special trainer, vet, or farrier you prefer, we welcome them.

EVENTS

From community rides, clinics with renowned horse trainers, and community events like our Annual Stable Party, we are always having a fun, safe time together and with our horses. We’ve reduced some of our activities due to COVID-19 but continue to offer safe, socially-distanced events. Check our calendar for more!

Our Story

Hitching Post Ranch was a working farm since the early 1940s, 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 bought 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, now the Rio Vista Resource Park. In 2019, Sandy and Rich Young, natives of Tucson, purchased the ranch from Jean Bagley. Sandy grew up on the ranch, her parents close friends of the Bagleys. And Rich? He’s a reformed white-collar worker, now a proper cowboy. We look forward to welcoming you and your horse into our home and community.
