Concho Hills was voted Signature Ranch Award Winner in eleven categories for 2019-2020, including: Best Dude Ranch, Best Food, and Best Horseback Riding.  They also was awarded “Best Heritage Guest Ranch” for 2019.

Nestled in the foothills of New Mexico's San Mateo Mountains, Concho Hills Guest Ranch offers a true west ranch vacation. Located in one of the Southwest United States' most picturesque and historic areas, there are lots to do both in and out of the saddle. This is where the Wild West existed, where cattle were driven to the Magdalena rail head, and where western icons like Cochise, Geronimo, Elfego Baca, Captain Jack Crawford, and the Apache Kid actually rode!

The owners discovered the cowboy culture in New Mexico.  They fell in love with it, embraced it, and they established Concho Hills to share it...not change it.  They share the scenic beauty of this country, the varied and interesting high desert animals and birds, and the culture and heritage that inspired them to call New Mexico home.  Their guests praise the horseback experiences, fantastic food, clean and comfortable rooms, family atmosphere, ranching activities, and historical tours.

Most guests come for the horseback riding.  Beginner and experienced riders alike will learn to ride the cow ponies "western ranch style." You will “ride a horse” instead of “going for a ride on a horse.” After an orientation in the round pen and arena, you will use your abilities to ride across the range, navigating through trees, across arroyos, and amongst the cattle.

Tired (or sore) of riding for awhile? There so many other activities to do.  Try your hand at roping, a game of horseshoes or bocce ball, or take a tour of our archaeological or western historic sites. Some just prefer to relax.   

Enjoy home cooked, western family style meals cooked in our cozy kiva kitchen or grilled to perfection in the outdoor kitchen. Share your daily experiences or ideas while passing the biscuits or potatoes around the family dining table.

In the evenings, watch spectacular sunsets while enjoying your favorite beverage while watching the changing colors.  Later, have interesting conversations, play games, sing or play music around the fire.  Perhaps you would just like to observe the stars of our dark skies!
