This authentic Texas dude ranch is home to Quarter Horses, American bison, abundant wildlife and one of the country's largest registered Texas Longhorn herds. As such, Texas Ranch Life encompasses Ranching First – immerse yourself in western cowboy culture as you observe the ranch’s resident cowboys ride and train the horses, feed the livestock, treat the animals for injuries and disease, and manage the working ranch operation.

Enjoy unparalleled views of Texas ranch country, with open-range horseback riding over the ranch’s 20 miles of rolling hills and vistas. Beautiful native pecan bottoms, live springs, limestone outcrops and tall prairie grasses make horseback riding over the ranch a favourite activity of guests. With horses available for beginners to accomplished riders alike, you’ll be matched with a suitable horse on which to explore the ranch or improve your skills in the covered arena. Want to bring your own horse? Texas Ranch Life can accommodate, offering paddocks available for rent.

When you’re not horseback riding, try your hand at fishing in one of the 15 fully stocked lakes, hunt for dove, quail, coyote and raccoon, or explore thousands of acres on trails by bike or ATV.

Texas Ranch Life has a history dating back to the 1850s, reflected in the luxury accommodations – choose from eight authentically restored and luxuriously appointed historic Texas homes dating back to this era.
