5. Saddle up, Cowgirls and City Slickers

Saddle up, Cowgirls and City Slickers

Ever fancied riding with real cowboys in the wild, wild west? A cowpoke weekend includes learning to ride and rope cattle, brand, sorting and herding horned beasties and helping with calves and foals in spring.

Join a cattle drive in summer or saddle up in autumn and help to round up the herd. Be sure to have some songs ready for the campfire get-together and hearty bean 'n' beef dinners you're going to have. There are numerous ranches offering this type of countryside break in the West. Search for "working ranch" rather than "guest ranch", if you want to be a real cow gal rather than a city slicker on a trail ride.
