August 24, 2012

Ever wanted to leave the corporate world for a life in the great outdoors, perhaps on your very own ranch?Alan Eggleston, Debbie Eggleston

Meet Debbie and Alan Eggleston who are living the dream on a working cattle ranch boardering the Gila National Forest in Southwest New Mexico. Debbie used to have an office job as a former admin assistant, and Alan was an airline pilot, but something was missing. This couple took the leap and purchased a ranch in remote and beautiful New Mexico, where land and horses are a plenty!

Equitrekking: What is most special about Double E Ranch's New Mexico ranch's location?

Debbie Eggleston: Spectacular vistas on 30,000 acres adjoining the 3 million acre Gila National Forest. Unlimited riding opportunities, challenging terrain, quality horses, comfortable cabins.

Equitrekking: What inspired you to run your ranch? 

Debbie Eggleston: Owning our own ranch was always our dream. Guest Ranching just ‘happened’.

Equitrekking: What level of rider do you need to be to visit your ranch?

Debbie Eggleston: We can teach you how to ride, but the better you ride before you arrive, the more you will enjoy the trip. Our guest ranch is a working ranch, so it's suited for strong beginners or better.

Equitrekking: Do guest’s have a favorite activity either in or out of the saddle? If so, what?

Debbie Eggleston: Many guests really love the challenging riding and the team penning.

Equitrekking: What do travelers find most surprising when they visit you?
