A few things about horse ranches. Since dude ranches are typically family owned (some for many generations), they are super kid friendly. Ranch staff interact with kids and adults, making you feel like part of their family. Kids become friends with the wranglers, cooks and other families. Ask a wrangler and they’ll tell you that many guests become close and time their annual family vacations to be together year after year. Depending on their location, ranch operating seasons vary. Some ranches welcome guests year-round, others are seasonal. In addition, ask about the required minimum stay. Some ranches require a minimum stay of two nights while the policy for others is one week.

Looking for horses for sale? HorseWeb is the world’s first (and oldest) horse classifieds website. As crazy as it sounds, we are almost a quarter-century old. That is nearly an eternity in internet life-cycle terms! The website continued to be an online equestrian destination of “everything for everyone” until a few years ago when we decided to concentrate on classifieds and nothing else — only horses for sale and lease, and stallions at stud. All other legacy parts of HorseWeb had to retire.
