Dude ranch vacations for families with kids of all ages create lasting memories. Many of our guests have returned year after year giving us the chance to watch the kids grow up from little ones to teens. We look forward to welcoming your family to Horseshoe Canyon Ranch.

Kid’s Ages 3-5

The kid’s program at the ranch is for those ages 3-5 who don’t need to be with mom, but aren’t quite old enough to ride on the trails. They will ride ponies with a youth counselor, do arts and crafts, play games and swim. They also get the opportunity for some nature walks, bug hunts, and fishing. This is not a babysitting service. Families are encouraged to do things as a family so the program coincides with the riding times to allow those of riding age to be together… any children not picked up on time will be given espresso, candy, a free puppy or goat and then delivered free to your cabin…(smile).

Kid’s ages 6 and over

Enjoy all the activities the ranch has to offer including horseback riding, rock climbing, ziplining, swimming and more. The game room in the lodge is a another big draw which includes ping pong table, foosball and billiards, as is the basketball court and indoor climbing wall in the top floor of the barn.


But will teens have fun? YES! Horseback riding, rock climbing, caves, ziplining, swimming, canoeing, ping pong, foosball, billiards, movie room, basketball, climbing wall, target practice, tomahawk throwing, GREAT FOOD and lots of it!
