In Depth

We are sad to say that the Double E Ranch is closed as of 2014. The owners have decided to retire. We are sad to see this wonderful ranch close to guests, but you can search for other great New Mexico ranches and ranches across the USA in the Equitrekking Vacation Guide.

Situated along the southwestern edge of the legendary Gila National Forest, Double E Ranch is a working cattle, horse and guest ranch. This New Mexico ranch vacation gives you the opportunity to experience the undiluted, real sensations of southwestern New Mexico ranch life.

We make every effort to avoid 'nose to tail' train riding at this New Mexico ranch. This country is breathtakingly beautiful, rugged, remote and pristine. The best way to see it is from the back of a willing, gentle horse. Tough and seasoned, Double E Ranch horses will take you trail riding, rounding up cattle, searching for Native Ruins or traveling the trails of outlaws and gunfighters. Covering approximately 30,000 acres of some of the most spectacular country in New Mexico, our work is meaningful, necessary and fulfilling. You'll look into vistas and see into forever!
