Trail Ride Holidays

Trail or point to point rides are horseback expeditions where you stay at a different locations throughout the trip. Some trail riding holidays are real adventures where you go back to basics with no frills, such as camping out under the stars with your horse at your side, whilst others take you between a variety of welcoming accommodation. Trail rides are a wonderful way to explore further afield in your country of choice, visiting South American estancias, Croatian farmhouses or perhaps luxurious African camps. They are also a great opportunity to enjoy the nature and wilderness of your surroundings as you can travel longer distances into untouched lands.

Trail rides are often seen as a way to get a feel for the country you are visiting. Riding to more remote areas brings encounters with locals, tucked away in their traditional homesteads, and travelling by horse sometimes means you can reach areas where vehicles cannot pass. The longer riding hours allow more time for your riding confidence and technique to improve and for you to bond with your assigned horse, a truly special experience.

There is a huge choice of trail rides to suit different riding abilities and budgets, though most involve long hours in the saddle and therefore are only suitable for those with some riding experience. If you are a beginner or novice, then take a look at our beginner rides to see what your options are. For the adventurous rider you can choose a fast ride, a desert exploration or even a once in a lifetime experience such as crossing the Andes mountain range on a fabulous Criollo horse.

The ranch is situated on the grounds of an old ghost town in North Eastern Wyoming. About 150 years ago the first settlers, called "homesteaders", came to the area. The small farmers were up against the rough climate, down-and-dirty cattle barons, hostile Indian tribes and the depression of the early 20th century. Many gave up and left.

Today around about 800 steers graze the ranch every year. The old buildings and machinery, though bare witness of times that nowadays we only know from movies.

Book for 2020 before December 15 2019 and you will be offered a 10% early booking discount. This is a fantastic family run working ranch with 8 guests maximum
