Real cowboy life!

Join Equitour on a working ranch horseback riding vacation you will never forget! Live your cowboy or cowgirl dreams on a real working ranch.

You have been riding for a while and feel this urge to use your riding skills for something more than just a pleasure ride. You like to be physical and want to get back to the basics for a while.
Picture yourself on a horse for three days straight riding the fence, bringing in a few strays, sharing your meals with Bill and Joe, the wranglers or the gauchos on the range. Does this sound like a childhood dream to you? If so, a working ranch is for you. The week might include branding, penning, cutting, riding hard for a day or two to supply the range rider with grub, and some quiet moments around the campfire spinning yarn and talking about your days’ adventures.

Some working ranches offer more basic accommodations in the bunkhouse or tent cabin - other estancias or haciendas offer the splendor of ‘old colonial times'. Meals are always plentiful, the horses some of the best in the country and the wisdom of your hosts invaluable. We offer "working ranch" vacations in many different countries - from the USA and Canada to haciendas in Ecuador or estancias in Argentina.
