Browsing Riding and Working Ranches

Choose a riding vacation that includes an element of authentic ranch work.

Whether here in the United States or farther afield in Latin America, there are still locations you can visit that offer traditional ranch work. The Bitterroot Ranch in Wyoming offers a week-long cattle roundup to gather their herd from summer pasture, or visit during a time in the summer when the cattle need to be checked or moved during a Range Rider week.

In Argentina the Estancia los Potreros manages their own herd of cattle, and in Brazil you’ll ride through working fazendas. It’s a wonderful glimpse into this traditional way of life that still perseveres in pockets such of these around the world.
