Trail rides, ranches and cattle drives in North America

North America is synonymous with the cowboy.

There are many ranch holidays to choose from depending on your preference for cattle drives, trail rides or natural horsemanship.

    Honestly faultless service from initial enquiry through to travel. Always accessible, friendly and helpful. All horses very steady, and certainly quieter horses on the ranch for guests which is needed. Excellent throughout.

They also took into consideration to what... Read all

    July 2022 NORAH aged 59
    Zapata Ranch is located in a beautiful, awe inspiring setting. Surrounded by mountains but with the plains stretching out in all directions. This location gives you a little of everything.
