Less than two hours outside of Denver, Drowsy Water Ranch has been in business since the 1920’s. About 100 head of horses, primarily quarter horses and paints, make their home at the Drowsy Water. Nine individual cabins snuggled beside the creek offer lodging for families. The 700-acre Drowsy Water Ranch welcomes children of all ages, even infants. The children’s program is unstructured, but comprehensive. Children ages 5 and under in the Buckaroos program are led on smaller horses in a pen. For children ages 6 to 13 in the Range Riders program, rides are held twice a day. The kids are allowed to walk, lope and trot according to trail conditions and their comfort level on the horses.

Here, the kids are allowed the freedom to be kids without pressures, and given adventures that will expand their confidence and fill their hearts. A dude ranch vacation will not just entertain your children, it will change their lives.
Rowse’s 1+1 Ranch in Nebraska, USA, is another working ranch where you can ride the range and experience life as a real cowboy.

A few details about dude ranches. Dude ranches are unique and fun for several reasons. “It’s a more personal vacation than Disney or cruises,” says Colleen Hodson, executive director for the Dude Ranchers’ Association. The association has 100-plus ranch members west of the Mississippi. “You’re there with no more than 200 people. It’s a place to connect and reconnect,” she says. “It gives you time to eat and play as a family.” Traditional ranches accommodate about 45-50 people. Trail rides and horses are the main focus. You’ll also find outdoor adventures. These dude ranches are usually located by great rivers, so fly fishing is a popular activity. Evening campfires, line dancing, great kids programs, and family style meals are part of the package.
