About The Venue

120 acre Ranch with obstacle/agility course, riding trails, vacation / retirement boarding and horse camping.

There is a $10 ranch fee per day per equine for folks who are not camping.

Inspired by her riding in Equine Trail Sports and Working Equitation competitions, Sandra's Obstacle Course has multiple obstacles, balancing exercises, jumps and trails to engage you and your horse.  

Located in the White Mountains of AZ at an elevation of 5600+ feet, 4 Beat Ranch makes a great getaway during the heat of the summer or anytime of the year, we enjoy 4 seasons up here.  4BR is located on the Snowflake/Concho border in AZ, just under 3.5 hours NE of Phoenix.

On 120 acres, there is plenty of room to camp and enjoy the peace and quiet of our serene setting.  Miles of country dirt roads to ride on as well as a 36 piece and growing obstacle course trail system on the property.  In addition to all the man made obstacles, there are endless ways to challenge yourself and your horse on the property's natural landscape as well.  

There is a 60' round pen, a 125' x 175' Arena and a 20m x 40m Junior Dressage Court on the property available for guest use.
