Ranching and Horse Riding

We like to offer as wide a range of adventures as possible for your gap year experience, and horse riding and ranching are two of the most exciting. Amidst some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, you could get to learn everything from lassoing and branding cattle to sheering sheep and riding horses while on your holiday.

There is no better way to combine your love of animals and the outdoors than getting your hands nice and dirty on the ranch. We have ranches in Australia and the USA and you can even qualify as a ranch hand and earn some money from your new skills!  

Whatever your level of experience from complete beginner to experienced rider we can help find the right choice for you.
