What a wonderful stay!


Choosing a ranch in TX under this huge selection is not easy! Even more we are so happy we chose the Wildcatterranch! It was a really authentic experience, the rooms and the whole ranch are built in a very rustical style but still high-standard. As we were visiting the ranch in January we really enjoyed the hot tub with outstanding view over the landscape! We'll definitely return!!

Real Western Horseback riding/Cattle Experience

Miami Beach, Florida

Visited the Wildcatter without much plans- with my wife - we stayed for one night- room excellent- great Restaurant good wines and excellent Expresso Coffee on their new coffee machine!! Views gorgeous in a hill landscape not typical in Texas- everything was excellent but what really unexpected was the wonderful horseback riding experience- Clint is the cowboy- a very talented cowboy - took us to learn the art of cow sorting - excellent trained horses- excellent tack- and we had one hour and a half of adrenaline and real horse riding- not the typical robot horse walking tour- in my opinion this ride may not be for everybody - but interested can do it with minimal training bu the cowboy- it will certainly be a great memory ride in a beautiful real western cowboy environment- my wife and I had a blast- we will certainly be back - ask for Shirley at the front desk and Clint for the horses-
