Breathtaking, Authentic, and Distinctive Experiences
Top50 Apr 22 2011 is the dude ranch vacation provider with a difference. Top50 showcases only the newest and best collection of top riding and authentic cowboy ranches in the world – each hand selected, then thoroughly tried and tested by both guests and seasoned ranchers, to ensure those seeking the ultimate dude ranch vacation will find what they’re looking for – and more.

Top50 goes the extra mile and brings more detail about each of its ranches than you could ever ask for: riding, food, staff, accommodations, guest services, local attractions, highs and lows, special events... the list is endless. Forget scouring the web for hours on end – with a personal shopping service, packing guide, visitor ratings, plus competitions and special offers, once you’ve visited you’ll never need to navigate away. Top50 provides everything you could ever need for the perfect dude ranch vacation in one place.

At the heart of Top50 lies a passion for cowboy culture and the ranching lifestyle – something that’s evident the moment you enter the slick, elegantly designed website. During their mission to bring the western way of life to the masses, Top50 has uncovered some true hidden gems...

Take Estancia Los Potreros in Cordoba, Argentina, for example. The Begg family’s exclusive 6,500-acre working organic cattle and stud farm is easy to miss, so tucked away it is at the top of the Sierras Chicas. Louisa and Kevin welcome guests into their home with open arms, sharing their traditional rural Argentinian lifestyle for a unique and unforgettable vacation. Taking only 12 guests at any one time, the couple pride themselves on offering their guests unrivalled personal attention to detail. An opportunity to ride one of their 140 head of Paso Peruanos is a truly unique experience. And riding through the estancia and trying your hand at Polo is something you’ll never forget.

So won over was Top50 with this unique find that they endeavoured to seek out more Argentine treasures – and when they stumbled upon Estancia Huechahue, a working cattle ranch in Argentine Patagonia, they knew they’d struck gold. The Wood family’s self-sufficient oasis and thriving cattle operation is ranching at its most authentic – and adventurous. At Huechahue, the riding is fast and the distances long, the rivers large and the views vast; long days in the saddle are as adventurous as they were in the 1900s, but the Woods’ hospitality and facilities are more luxurious than you could ever wish for.

Reassuringly, however, Top50 is all about catering for every age, budget, level of riding experience and guest requirement – even non-riders will find their perfect western ranch vacation. Families with young children will love dude ranches like Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge, which offers an unbelieveably diverse range of activities – and Dad might even discover his inner John Wayne...

Or couples can escape to some of Top50’s pick of adult-only, luxurious and more secluded guest ranches. Weddings, honeymoons, romantic weekends – Top50 showcases ranches for every occasion, including some erring on the side of luxury – such as Triple Creek Ranch, in the Montana Rockies. Think year-round pampering, gourmet dining, first-class accommodations and tailor-made packages – all with fabulous western horseback riding opportunities at the fore. is the only place to go to find that perfect ranch – whatever you’re looking to get from your western riding vacation. Saddle up with Top50 and you won’t be disappointed!
