Dude Ranches with Excellent Kids Programs

Riding Activities - Ride the West with the Best

All DRA ranches offer instruction for guests who have never ridden or would like to improve their skills. Horse safety is a priority, so you will be matched to the appropriate horse and given all the necessary instruction to make your time safe, comfortable and fun.

Often, the ranch location dictates the type of riding offered; overnight pack trips, hunting trips, all-day, breakfast or lunch rides, cattle drives, team penning, cutting, guest rodeos, gymkhanas, mountain rides, as well as a variety of daily trail explorations.

Other Activities

For those not riding, the range of activities may include; hiking, nature walks, bird watching, petting zoos, mountain biking, river rafting, swimming pools, hot tubs, exercise rooms, massage services, pool tables, card games, rec rooms, hay rides, western dancing, campfires, cookouts, tennis, volleyball, basketball, softball, fishing (there are Orvis approved programs), canoeing, rock climbing, skeet shooting, archery, art classes, cooking classes, and many have nearby golf, historic sites and national parks.


Goosewing Ranch

Jackson, Wyoming

A place to disconnect from your daily struggles and reconnect with what is really important: Family, friends, nature, and inner self.

Here at Goosewing Ranch, we combine the lifestyle of ranching in the Wyoming wilderness with many of the modern refinements that make your visit with us especially enjoyable.

At 7,400 feet, the valley is the host to some of North America’s most spectacular game: elk, moose, mountain sheep, antelope, bear, eagles, geese, cranes, and much more, not to mention fantastic scenery. The Gros Ventre River, home to native cutthroat trout, runs through the meadows of our historic ranch.

We invite you to come share this corner of North America’s wildest country just as it has been for over a  hundred years – a working ranch reborn as an isolated retreat deep in the Gros Ventre River Valley.
