Pine Butte Ranch horseback riding vacation
Dude ranch vacations – the phrase conjures up images of cowboys on horseback, dressed from head to toe in straw hats, western styled shirts, denim jeans hidden underneath leather chaps and the required cowboy boots with spurs that jingle when they touch the ground.
Many types of horse riding holidays
There are many types of horse riding holidays, from Relaix and Chateau resorts, to multi-day trail rides in the south of France
, or family-friendly, all-inclusive horseback riding vacations. Some people enjoy ranches that specialize in trail rides and overnight pack trips with a rustic approach, while others want a spa treatment after a day in the saddle. As I specialize in equestrian travel, I have learned that the words dude ranch
mean different things to people.
