The White Stallion Ranch is in the Sonoran Desert—a subtropical desert and the most complex desert in North America. It is the only place in the world where the famous saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea), a symbol of the American Southwest, grows in the wild. But don’t be fooled by the term “desert” because mountain ranges in all directions offer scenic drives and even snow skiing. It has great diversity in geological structures as well as the number and variety of plants and animals. There are many local attractions to entertain family and friends accompanying seminar participants. Or stay extra days before or after the seminar to fully enjoy surrounding areas and attractions and the ranch’s activities.
