American Ranches

Photo from the White Stallion Ranch (USA) ride.

Ranch holidays are when your dream of becoming a cowboy or girl can finally come true. There is a vast number of ranches available in the USA, Canada, Mexico and South America, catering from the beginner rider through to the experienced wrangler, and offering daily trail riding, pack trips, cattle work and even horse drives. Guests can get involved in the cowboy way of life, riding the land before tucking into hearty barbecues or ranch feasts, and the traditions of rodeos, team penning competitions and hay rides can all be experienced. Western tack is the order of the day and provides a comfortable and practical way to travel whilst also requiring great skill when trying your hand at barrel racing or driving a herd of horses to their new pasture.

We find that ranch holidays in America appeal to all kinds of travellers, be it single riders looking for an adventure, families wanting to spend some quality time together somewhere special or even couples and groups of friends who want to experience ranch life at its best. You can choose between dude ranches (typical guest ranches offering trail rides) or traditional working ranches where cattle work has often been a family tradition for decades. Those who wish to explore the countryside are welcome on pack trips where you can become one with the wilderness and the aspiring cowboy can get to know his ranch brothers and join them branding, vaccinating and checking the cattle or moving them between pastures.

Whatever your hopes for a ranch riding holiday, get in touch and we will help you to find the right place. Please bear in mind when shopping around that many ranch holidays incur state taxes and gratuities - we include these in all our ranch prices so that there are no hidden costs.
