Yee Haw Y’all – it’s a real life working dude ranch! Dixie Dude Ranch has been running for over 75 years in Bandera, Texas. This amazing Western getaway is a great way for the family to get out into that beautiful Texas countryside, and learn the way of a rancher!
Not only is the dude ranch a place where you can stay overnight, but they also offer activities for non-overnight guests. If you fancy some Hill Country Horseback Riding, you are in luck because at the Dixie Dude Ranch, it’s some of the best in the area! These amazingly scenic rides will take the family climbing over unspoiled and rugged terrain – 725 acres of it to be exact!
There are even Overnight Trail Rides for even more amazing equestrian fun! Of course, if you stay at the ranch your package can include two daily horseback rides. Even better! They last about an hour, and if you want to brush up on those riding skills, you can also enjoy riding lessons.
The Dixie Dude Ranch is FILLED with great activities! There is catch-and-release fishing, hayrides, hiking, dancing, campfire sing-a-longs, and a whole lotta Western fun! There are even fun outdoor activities like volleyball, basketball, horseshoes and ping pong. Want to hunt for fossils or explore the century-old barn and Range War Cemetery? You can do that to!
Just an hour from San Antonio, this working ranch still does what it was created to do – from raising longhorn cattle, pigs and Spanish goats, to real cowboys working with the horses to compete in rodeos. And of course, home-cooked meals are produced! It really is “Home on the range”!
If you wanted to extend your stay, they do have cottages, rooms and cabins where you can relax and enjoy everything the ranch has to offer.
C’mon y’all – it’s Dixie Dude Ranch time!
