For a truly American adventure, try a ranch holiday which gives you the opportunity to experience life as a cowboy! From horse riding and bird watching, to campfires and barbecues, you’re in for a truly authentic stay. Have a look below at the different types of ranch you can choose to experience.
Working ranches are the most basic of ranches, and offer the most authentic ranch experience. Guests will be required to take part in the day-to-day running of the ranch such as raising the livestock, driving the cattle and horses, and carrying out any ‘chores’ that need to take place during your stay. Lodging is basic with essential amenities, and very comfortable. Meal times are plentiful and are taken with the rest of the ranch employees.
Recommended stay: 5-7 nights
Dude ranches are a place where you get to learn all about life on the ranch. You will be taught how to ride and care for horses as well as taking part in a range of activities from hiking and fishing to country dancing, BBQ’s and much more. Dude ranches are perfect for a family get away, with a fun and full weekly programme of activities. Accommodation is usually in spacious lodges or cabins.
Recommended stay: 3-5 nights
Guest ranches are designed primarily to care for guests and offer a ranch atmosphere combined with a little more luxury than a typical dude ranch. Horse riding is the main focus at most guest ranches and any level whether novice or pro can take part. There is a more relaxed atmosphere at a guest ranch without a hectic activities programme. Simply relax by the pool during the day or take part in various activates as and when you please. Accommodation ranges from hotel style rooms, lodges and cabins.
Recommended stay: 2-6 nights
Resort ranches are a combination of dude and guest ranches and are the most luxurious. They are large resorts and offer all of the comforts and amenities you would expect a hotel to have. Some have tennis courts, hot tubs, spas and even fitness facilities. Daily activities will include horse riding, biking and fishing as well as a fully supervised children’s programme. Resort ranches are an ideal choice for families and provide lots of activities to keep everyone busy. Accommodation is superior in hotel-style rooms and suites.
Recommended stay: 2-7 nights
