Nothing will get you there quicker and more realistically than feeling the undulating landscape beneath the horse’s hooves, as it works its way over the terrain, so clutch the reins, tip your hat and spur your heels further up the trail. Guest ranches also offer a host of other activities and that include; fishing, hiking, rafting, clay shooting, rodeo, sightseeing tours and evening entertainment.
