Horseback Riding Locations
1 Hyatt Regency Tamaya
Hyatt Regency Tamaya
1300 Tuyuna Trail
Bernalillo, NM 87525

This spectacular large-scale resort, on 500 acres on the Santa Ana Pueblo, includes a top-rated golf course, state-of-the-art spa, and cultural museum and learning center. Most rooms, swathed in natural stone, wood, and adobe and filled with pueblo-inspired textiles and pottery, overlook the Sandia Mountains or cottonwood groves; many have balconies or patios. Cultural events include bread-baking demonstrations (in traditional adobe ovens), storytelling, and live tribal dance and music performances. Other amenities include waterslides over two of the outdoor pools, atmospheric bars, guided nature walks, and hot-air ballooning nearby. The Hyatt's outstanding Corn Maiden Restaurant

(

Closed Sun. and Mon. No lunch

) serves outstanding contemporary fare that mixes New Mexican, Asian, regional American influences and ingredients. Try buffalo topped with foie gras and a truffle demi-glace, or crispy-skin duck served with an apple-green chili pancake and orange-whiskey sauce. The Santa Ana Star Casino is a free shuttle ride away. And if you're looking for an exceptional horseback ride, arrange one with the Tamaya stables. As you drink in eyefuls of the spectacular pueblo backcountry and weave among trees and plantings, you'll wonder why you ever settled for the dull nose-to-butt riding experiences of yesteryear. If you're too suave to wear the helmet or gloves offered, by all means do not forego a heavy layer of sunscreen, especially on your face, ears, and neck.

Pros:

This is the place to come to get away.

Cons:

Occasionally quirky front-desk service, but that's it. www.tamaya.hyatt.com. 331 rooms, 19 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf course, pools, tennis courts, gym, spa, children's programs. Credit cards accepted.

2 Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center
Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center

, NM 87510

The Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center, open to the public year-round, is busiest in summer, when the majority of workshops take place. Subjects range from poetry and literary arts to photography, horseback riding, and every conceivable traditional craft of northern New Mexico. These courses are open to the public, and guests camp or stay in semirustic cottages or casitas. If you're here for a day trip, after registering at the main office, you may come in and hike high among the wind-hewn rocks so beloved by O'Keeffe. The Florence Hawley Ellis Museum of Anthropology

contains Native American tools, pottery, and other artifacts excavated from the Ghost Ranch Gallina digs. Pioneer anthropologist Florence Hawley Ellis conducted excavations at Chaco Canyon and at other sites in New Mexico. Adjacent to the Ellis Museum, the

Ruth Hall Museum of Paleontology

exhibits the New Mexico state fossil, the coelophysis, also known as "the littlest dinosaur," originally excavated near Ghost Ranch. For the art lover, or the lover of the New Mexican landscape, Ghost Ranch offers guided O'Keeffe & Ghost Ranch Landscape Tours of the specific sites on the ranch that O'Keeffe painted during the five decades that she summered here. Her original house is not part of the tour and is closed to the public. These one-hour tours are available mid-March through mid-October, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at 1:30 and 3; the cost is $25, and you must call first to make a reservation. The landscape tours are timed to coincide with the tours given at her house in Abiquiu, although they have nothing to do with the O'Keeffe studio tours offered there. Here's a little-known tidbit: limited camping is available on Ghost Ranch for both RVs and tents ($16-$26) and full hookups are available for RVs. www.ghostranch.org. Admission: Suggested donation $3 minimum.
