Dude Ranches, also called Guest Ranches, give vacationers the unique opportunity to experience what it’s like to relive the Old West. Ranches vary from authentic working cattle ranches with basic amenities to luxurious resort ranches with spas and gourmet food. The one thing that all ranches have in common though, is the chance to ride a horse, wear a cowboy hat, and feel like you have gone back in time. In addition to horseback riding, most ranches offer other activities such as fishing, whitewater rafting, hay rides, roasting marshmallows, or just relaxing on your front porch with a good book and a glass of lemonade. With this detailed guidebook, you're as good as in the saddle!
