horseback riding on family dude ranch vacations

Family Horseback Riding

There are family vacations and there are dude ranch vacations, but only the Flying E Ranch puts them together to offer the best family dude ranch vacations. How do we do that? Well, for starters, we’re a real working cattle ranch with real cowboys. And, of course, we have friendly and experienced wranglers who lead twice-daily horseback rides for riders of all experience levels over the miles of trails that cover our 20,000-acre ranch. And there are plenty of authentic dude ranch activities to delight the entire family, including chuck wagon cookouts, team penning, square dances, and hay wagon rides. If you’re looking for the Real West, it’s right here at the Flying E.

What if you want to take a day off from riding? Variety is the spice of dude ranch life, and the Flying E has you covered. Take a swim in our heated pool or just lounge at the poolside. Relax in our Jacuzzi or sauna, or get a workout in our exercise room. For family activities that are fun for all ages, we have tennis courts, a basketball court, a giant outdoor chess set, checkers and board games in our game room, a horseshoe pitch, miles of hiking trails, and abundant bird watching opportunities. Adults can wind down the day in our saloon with our BYOB cocktail hour while the youngsters raid the always stocked cookie jar in the dining hall.

Our accommodations are family-friendly, too, to ensure the most comfortable of family dude ranch vacations. We offer a variety of rooms to suit every family size, including 15 rooms and two family houses, and all meals are included with lodging. All of our rooms now offer WiFi internet connections, too, though we can’t imagine why you’d want to do anything other than explore all that the Flying E has to offer.

Make your reservation today for a family dude ranch vacation that you’ll never forget.
