sheep ranch in IdahoTravel-quest's ranching holidays section lists holidays and vacations based on dude and working guest ranches where participants may take part in ranching operations, cattle drives, cattle steering and round ups, frequently on horseback (with other outdoor and related activities also often provided).


Western guest and dude ranches offer a experience of the life of a cowboy rancher; usually on cattle ranches, livestock may be anything from sheep and cows to the more exotic, emus or llamas for example. Guest or dude ranches are found in North America, particularly in the American West, but they may also be found in other parts of the world, including South America, South Africa, Australia and even livestock and cattle ranch-type farms in Europe.


We also trips and tours that include rodeos and cattle stampede events.
