About Our Ranching Holidays

Our aim is to make your dream holiday come true, we will tailor the holiday to your requirements.

Riding
Firstly let’s state that you do not have to be a rider to enjoy a Ranch Rider holiday! Most of our properties can accommodate the non-rider as well as the seasoned rider, so if you are a non-rider do not be put off as many of our ranches and estancias can offer instruction, let Ranch Rider be your guide. For a more intense riding experience we would recommend one of our working ranches, estancias or riding safaris.

Please note that some properties have a rest day for their horses and this is usually the changeover days, where ranches do not have a set changeover day the horses’ rest day is usually Sunday.

Activities
Although most activities are included in the price some may carry an additional charge. Certain activities may not be available at the beginning and end of the season due to weather or water conditions. Where a property offers a specific supervised children’s programme then it normally takes place in late June, July and August.

Safety Notice
Many of our riding activities do not require you to wear protective headgear, in line with local customs and therefore the availability of protective headgear can vary from destination to destination. We cannot guarantee that protective headgear will be provided or that it will be to the same safety standard as those available in the UK. If you choose to wear protective headgear we would strongly advise that you take your own.

Prices
These are calculated in sterling for a weekly stay of seven nights unless otherwise stated and include accommodation, three meals a day, most ranch activities (including riding), use of facilities and taxes. Child rates are usually based upon sharing with two full paying adults; additional person rates apply when sharing with two full paying adults.

Prices Do Not Include (unless stated otherwise) – Flights, transfers between airport and ranch/ estancia/safari lodge or camp, gratuities, insurance and items of a personal nature.

Gratuities
It is customary to tip in the U.S.A. and Canada and most ranches collect a gratuity charge on behalf of their staff. If applicable, we will advise the exact amount, which will be included in your quotation/invoice. Some ranches have included a gratuity in their rate and this is shown as being included. Some ranches operate a no tipping policy and this is also shown. Some ranches leave it entirely up to the guest’s discretion and we would advise 12% -15% as an acceptable level.

With regard to our Argentina estancias and our South Africa riding lodges and camps, it is customary to leave a gratuity and we will advise you of this at the time of booking.
