their vacation time to explore new, unique hobbies and sports that can’t be found in their own backyards. A guest ranch is the perfect destination for visitors to discover new pastimes like horseback riding, a pop- ular activity among guests at the more than 100 dude ranches that make up the Dude

Upon arrival to individual ranches, experienced wranglers match each guest with a horse based on rider experience level, horse personality and size, and more.


The result is an incredible riding experience – for both guest and horse! Regardless of one’s desired terrain type or excursion plan, horseback riding allows visitors to explore their surroundings from a diff erent vantage point with the opportunity to get up close and personal with wildlife and the natural elements. So, what are you waiting for? Come make some family memories on your next vacation at a Dude Ranch!
