On our USA ranch holidays, you can experience life like a true cowboy. You’ll stay in an authentic ranch and spend your days living the cowboy dream. Fill your time with guided horse riding expeditions stomping over the vast plains and towering hills of the USA. Or, for a more relaxing activity, while your afternoon away as you fish by a tranquil lake.

Spend the evenings of your horse ranch holidays sitting around a roaring fire with your fellow cowboys telling tales of your adventures. And don’t be shy to get involved in some of the many nightly ranch games, such as Western bingo. You can also experience a traditional cowboy party, jigging along to traditional country music and listening to live local music as the sparkling night sky stretches out above you.

Live like a Real Cowboy on our cowboy ranch holidays

Choose from plenty of locations across the USA to suit your tastes on our cowboy ranch holidays. Enjoy working ranch holidays in Utah and Arizona, where the spectacular landscapes are the perfect backdrop for your cowboy adventures. Picture dusty, deep-red sandy deserts, peeking cactuses, and dramatic rock formations.

Alternatively, the Rocky Mountains in the West offer your cowboy holidays lusher, more verdant landscapes. You’ll adventure through the brilliant green forests, frothy rivers and glimmering alpine lakes as you trot around the plains on horseback. For the ultimate cattle ranch holidays, head to the Southern plains of Texas. Here you can roam the Texas Hill Country during your sun-soaked days before roasting marshmallows on flickering fires by night.

Seeking some relaxation? Don’t worry, there’s such thing as luxury ranch holidays too. Opt for a ranch resort and spa, where you can spend one day hiking through mountain peaks and the next relaxing blissfully in a bubbling jacuzzi. Speak to our experts to plan your adventure today.

‘Wait until you arrive to buy your cowboy gear. You can get some style tips from the wranglers and you're likely to find a better selection with more affordable prices.’

Charlotte, Destination Specialist

‘Look at checking in or out of a ranch on a Sunday. Most ranches allow the horses to rest on Sundays, meaning that you wouldn’t miss out on any horse-based activities.’
