TUCSON, Ariz. - In keeping with its "Uniquely Southwest" brand, Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort in Oro Valley, Ariz. has opened horse stables and launched "El Conquistador Western Adventures." 

The 18-horse stable, located on the resort's property and run by Pot A Gold Stables, will offer trail rides, riding lessons and family-friendly adventures for locals and visitors looking to explore the spectacular Sonoran Desert. Whether it's a group trail ride, a romantic sunset ride for two or hayrides and carriage rides for the whole family, a custom experience is available no matter the occasion. Guests can also arrange a cowboy breakfast before hitting the trail or a group cookout to end the day at Last Territory, the resort's rugged, outdoor Western-themed venue. This offering is also a great add-on to a family reunion, a conference team-building activity or  a wedding rehearsal party.

"This enhancement comes on the heels of Hilton Tucson El Conquistador's largest renovation in its 34-year history. With uniquely Southwest experiences at the core of the refresh, we think the stables will be a significant chapter in the resort's storied history."
