Horseback riding holidays guarantee to produce memories that will last a lifetime, but sometimes a single moment captured in time can sum up the spirit of a western ranch vacation.
Each month we scour our selection of horseback riding holidays and find those images that sum up what a western ranch vacation is all about, whether it's a sense of reconnection with nature or family, or the team spirit of a cattle drive. It could be peace and tranquility, or it could be the fun, adventure and sheer joy of being on a horse that only western horseback riding holidays can evoke.
May 2012 - Horseback Riding Holiday Photo of the Month
This month's winning image comes courtesy of Rowse's 1+1 Ranch in Nebraska, USA. We felt the ranch's postcard picture perfectly summed up life on a genuine working cattle ranch and everything Rowse's 1+1 is about. As a Ranching First guest ranch, horse riding holidays at Rowse's 1+1 mean complete immersion into the cowboy lifestyle - complete with authentic cattle drives, branding weeks and cattle work in the area. The 6th generation, family owned and operated guest ranch encourages guests to get hands-on with all ranch activities, so aside from horseback riding you'll be learning real wrangler skills such as fixing fence, checking water lines and doctoring calves. Horseback riding holidays don't get much more authentic or genuine than this, and this working cowboy spirit is perfectly captured in May's Photo of the Month.
