Types of Ranches


Working Dude Ranch

A working dude ranch tends to focus on an authentic ranch experience, immersing visitors into daily life as a cowboy. Daily responsibilities include everything from cattle drives, tending horses, and ranch upkeep. Horseback riding experience is typically suggested, as guests work side-by-side with wranglers on a daily basis.

Traditional Dude Ranch

A traditional dude ranch gravitates towards sporting activities & relaxation. Hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, trap/skeet shooting, tennis, and swimming are a sampling of daily activities typically available. Horseback riding remains a strong focus, although riding is by no means required for visiting guests.


Resort / Luxury Dude Ranch

Resort / Luxury dude ranches are boutique destinations; often Relais & Châteaux rated, Condé Nast Johansens selected, or Orvis Fly Fishing endorsed. On-site activities can include yoga, spas, golf, UTVs, & meals prepared by nationally recognized chefs. Accommodations & service rival 4 and 5 star destinations.
