For The Cowboys
The Wild West is the real deal, even a century later, cowboys, horses and sprawling ranches still exist across the American western landscape. Perhaps, you’re a fan of old-school epic Western films, or maybe, you’ve binge-watched the highly addictive Yellowstone.
Whether you’re more of a John Wayne or John Dutton type, dude ranches are the perfect place to play cowboy for a few days with stunning scenic views by horseback, world-class fly fishing, a cattle drive or archery & hunting.
Many ranches also offer horsemanship clinics to help you become a more complete rider. You will ride some rugged terrain, cover some very tough miles and perform some extremely refined horsemanship maneuvers that require lightness and balance, note most ranches only take riders under 220 lbs.
