Roosevelt lake just east of Phx in Tonto Nat Forest has a nice horse camp ground. There is water, corrals, and restrooms. The trails can be pretty difficult, but it ties into the AZ Trail. It's very scenic.
Also, Houston Mesa trail out of Payson has horse camping and plenty of trails. Lots of pine trees so it's a cooler ride in the summer.
So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
