Anyone that’s been on a dude ranch vacation or retreat knows how much fun they have to offer. From arena games to family rides to pony rides for the kids, there’s truly something out there for everyone. Still, with all of the fun horse-riding activities and “ranch” related things to do, it’s sometimes easy to forget how many other great activities are offered on America’s Guest Ranches. Here is a list of five activities offered on various DRA Dude Ranches that you may not have known existed, but should make sure not to miss… Western Dancing – While you’re out on the ranch, why not delve into a little dancing? There’s nothing like a sunset hoedown, and there are 51 different DRA certified ranches that offer such shindigs! Next time you’re out on a guest ranch vacation, throw on your dancing shoes and a cowboy hat and let the good times roll. Zip Line – While riding around on the ground can be fun, zip lining through the sky can bring your trip to a whole new level. Guaranteed fun for both adults and kids, there are dude ranches in Arkansas, Colorado and Idaho that each offer zip lines. Get out there, and get ready to fly! Fishing – Take your rec time from the stables to the lake for some good old-fashioned dude ranch fishing. There are 87 Dude Ranches that offer fishing activities, so there’s no excuse not to pull out the hook, line and sinker and catch tonight’s dinner! Yoga – Vacations are all about relaxing, and when it comes to relaxing, there is nothing like a little bit of yoga. Whether you want to start your day with a short session before you head out into the wilderness, or you just want to finish the day off with a nice calming activity, yoga has what you’re looking for. There are fifteen different dude ranches that offer yoga, so if this is something that interests you, you’re in luck! Archery – When you think of a dude ranch you don’t necessarily think of archery, but there are thirty different DRA ranches that offer such activities. Nothing’s more fun for the family then a little bit of friendly competition, and archery is the perfect outlet for this. Take a break from horses and test your skills and coordination, archery can be more fun than you might expect! As far as fun non-riding activities offered on dude ranches, this is a great start, but the list is by no means exhaustive. Bird watching, mountain climbing, river rafting and more are all available at guest ranches across the country. Next time you visit a guest ranch, make sure to take advantage of all the activities they have to offer, and you’re sure to have the time of your life.
