Trail rides, ranches and cattle drives in North America

North America is synonymous with the cowboy. Whether you've always dreamt of being a cowboy on a quarter-horse or an Indian on an Appaloosa, a horse riding holiday in the USA can make your dreams come true. There are many ranch holidays to choose from depending on your preference for cattle drives, trail rides or natural horsemanship. North America has more to offer than Western riding holidays however - you can also explore the wilds of Yukon on a pack trip or join a trail ride in beautiful national parks- the choice is yours.
