Tips and Tricks

When visiting the stadiums for Cactus League games, remember that they are cashless, so have your debit card or digital wallet ready for transactions. Some stadiums offer reverse ATMs to convert cash to plastic, but verify beforehand. Be mindful of bag policies, as most stadiums limit sizes and content; sealed bottled water and snacks in plastic bags are generally allowed. Prepare for security screenings upon entrance, and don’t forget sunscreen – it’s available for purchase at team shops if needed. Keep an eye on your ballpark’s website for updates on promotions or events throughout the season.

For every 12 year old girl who dreamed of owning their own horse, for every 10 year old boy who just knew they would be a cowboy riding horses through the desert when he grew up, February is the ideal time to plan a visit to the West’s Most Western Town. February 15 through February 25 the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show gallops into town, an event attended by over 300,000 people every year, bringing the beauty and talent of Arabian horses to the forefront of our attention. Offering magic, elegance, and an exciting opportunity to explore the world of dressage and a glimpse into the history of this ancient breed (there is evidence this breed is over 3500 years old) your time spent at the show will be your favorite part of your Arizona adventures, especially when you come home to our Paseo Homes Scottsdale sanctuaries every night.

WestWorld of Scottsdale, 16601 N Pima Road

In 1955 the first Arabian Horse Show was held at the Biltmore, showcasing the stunning beauty of the breed, with only 50 animals competing in the event. Today the show is held at WestWorld of Scottsdale with nearly 2400 Arabians competing, making it the largest Arabian horse show in the entire world and has even been called the Superbowl of the Arabian world. And although there are many other big draw events that take place at the same time, including spring training for major league baseball, the joy of an event that brings owners, trainers, breeders, and, of course, these graceful animals together adds an element of charm and wonder to your vacation experience.

The Arabian Difference

In the west our horses tend to be more industrial, both in stature and style, used to cattle drives and night time rides through the desert, but Arabian horses are an entirely different breed. Characterized by its finely chiseled head, it is its intelligence, its grace, and the air of nobility that has made the Arabian Horse most sought after, with the best Arabians possibly capturing a price that can be as much as 30,000 dollars. Many of the winner’s of this year’s show will go on to take the big money as will their offspring.

The Arabian Horse Show Difference

If you have never witnessed an Arabian horse show before you may not understand what the schedule shows, offering events titled English and Western Dressage,  Arabian Country Pleasure, and Hunter Pleasure Walk/Trot, events that are far different from Rodeo Events that include Barrel Racing, Tie Down Roping, and Bull Riding. But even as the crowds are more genteel, the events are less rugged, and the riders are dressed so very differently from those at a rodeo, the underlying vibe, one of horses and the people who love them will be very much the same. Sometimes more of a beauty pageant for horses and at other times a talent show where impeccably dressed riders guide their steeds around obstacle courses, the one common thing you may see at both a rodeo and this horse show, is riders wearing typical Western style cowboy hats, even as many riders will be dressed in English equestrian garb. 

So Much to See

Perhaps the most colorful event will be the Mounted Native Costume event where riders show off their capes, coats, scarfs, and headdresses with the best costume winning the competition. and the most exciting may be the Scottsdale Signature Stallion Auction, where rowdiness similar to that of the 16th hole at the Waste Management Open contrasts with white tablecloths and fancy clothing and the auctioning off of stud services. Featuring a marketplace of arts, crafts, riding gear, and goodies that make riding more fun and a celebration of National Arabian Horse Day on February 19th. Leashed dogs are permitted, so if you have traveled across the miles with your fur child in tow, bring it along, or if not, just revel in the opportunity to enjoy horse and puppy pets whenever permitted. Visitors can meet an Arabian, having their pictures taken as they sit astride the mighty beasts, providing them with a souvenir they will never forget and if you are truly interested in learning all you can about the horse show, free barn tours give visitors a peek behind the scenes of this most prestigious show.

Get Comfortable with Paseo Homes

The days are long at the Arabian Horse Show and by the time the sun sets over the events, visitors will be more than ready to come home to the comforts of our Paseo Homes vacation havens. There are no horses or stables in our back yards, but there will be games waiting to be played and hot tubs in which guests can soak away any aches and pains. All the comforts of home are waiting to be explored in our Paseo Homes Scottsdale sanctuaries; reserve your favorite today!

Exterior Area

The outside area alone is enough to make your jaw drop. The backyard features a bright blue pool that changes colors in the dark. You can also soak your tired legs from a day full of hiking or biking in the hot tub. Sit with your friends, have a glass of wine, and rest your legs in the hot tub to recover and get ready to go out on another hike the following day.

You can then go and sit under the covered outdoor deck to keep the sun off your face, avoid getting rained on (although it is almost always sunny here), and share some appetizers with your friends. The cozy wicker chairs with soft pillows and cushions are relaxing and comfortable for sitting and watching the sun go down.

During the daylight hours, we love the fenced-in outdoor space. Head out here in the bright sunshine and challenge your friend to a game of corn hole. Or sit by the fireplace as the sun goes down in the distance and tell stories to your friends. You can marvel at the far-reaching views, play fetch with your dog in the manicured garden, and get a tan on a hot fall day. You can also practice your game on the putting green or make some smores over the outdoor firepit.

The more you explore the outdoor space, the more you will find! This expansive private property is massive, giving every single guest a place to relax in a pool, spend time in a spa, take a nap under a covered umbrella or deck, and play games outside in the yard. With the perfect weather and amazing views, it is no wonder people spend all their time outside!

Common Space

Ready to enter the house? Just get ready to be blown away by the large ceilings, wood trim, wooden floors, cool artwork, bright lights, and functional layout. The living room features a large leather couch that is large enough for you and your guests. You Can also sit in the plush chairs to read a book or in the kitchen bar area to sip on a cocktail at 5 p.m.

Turn on the TV, watch your favorite movie, or take a midday nap in the cozy living room. At night, you can turn on the fireplace to stay warm and share stories with one another around the low-lit living room with a few cups of tea or glasses of wine.

Once you are in the mood for dinner, head to the large dining room table with multiple chairs, bright lights, and a chandelier to keep the space bright and airy. The wooden dining room table works well in the rustic style of the house and the wooden floors, showing the pristine interior styling and decorations.

Modern Kitchen

Feeling a bit hungry after a full day of being outside by the pool? Head to the modern kitchen to sit at the bar stool chairs, sip on a beer, and share snacks with your pals. You can also use the new stainless-steel appliances, cabinets for food storage, and granite counter to prepare a hearty dinner for your guests as they chill out and enjoy the weather.
