Ranching Holidays in the United States

BY Jody Dahl | Tue 28 Jun, 2011

Ranching holidays can’t be found better than in the heart of western cowboy culture – the US of A. Renowned for its ranching lifestyle, the United States is seen by many as the ultimate destination for ranching holidays. Head to North America and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to western ranching holidays – whether you’re an experienced rider looking for a challenge, new to the saddle and seeking western adventure, or simply wishing yourself away in a scene from A River Runs Through It...

Speaking of the Brad Pitt western classic, filming for the movie took place near some of Top50’s ranch vacations; locations include Bozeman and Livingston, both in Montana, and Granite Falls in neighbouring Wyoming. Take your ranching holiday at Lone Mountain Guest Ranch, Sweetgrass Ranch or Bonanza Creek Ranch in Montana, or head to Lazy L&B  Ranch in Wyoming, and it’ll feel like stepping right into the film set. All Top50 can’t guarantee from your US ranching holiday is a glimpse of Brad Pitt!

Looking for a working ranching holiday in the United States? Head to Colorado and herd buffalo at Zapata, soak up Arizona’s diverse scenery from horseback at Los Banos, or immerse yourself in western adventure at Colorado’s Chico Basin Ranch. Or if you're feeling really adventurous, head to Estancia Ranquilco, in Argentina, for a horse riding adventure in the remote wilderness of Patagonia - not one for the fainthearted!

For some time away from the kids, choose a guest ranching holiday at Rowse’s 1+1 in Nebraska, a guest ranch vacation sealed with the Top50 stamp of approval.

Take the kids with you at a dude ranching holiday such as that offered by Majestic Ranch and Latigo Ranch in Colorado. If peace, quiet and a touch of pampering is more what you’re after from your United States dude ranching holiday, you won’t find fault at Triple Creek Ranch and The Ranch at Rock Creek, both located in Montana, or Vista Verde Ranch further south in Colorado.

Wherever you decide to head for your United States ranching holiday, you can be guaranteed that a Top50 ranch won’t leave you disappointed. View Top50’s great selection of the best ranching holidays in the United States today and discover your inner cowboy!
