Horsebacking Riding at the Running-R Ranch
Bandera, Texas Dude Ranch
Experience Texan hospitality and a taste of the 'Real West' with a stay on the Running-R guest ranch
in the heart of the beautiful Hill Country. Ride exciting trails amid a breathtaking scenery on the ranch and in the adjoining State Park with over 5,500 acres! We are focusing on horseback riding and are proud to offer the best program in the area with rides up to 5 hours for beginners as well as for advanced riders. Lessons in our big arena are also available. Enjoy home-cooked meals, barbecues, cowboy breakfasts or join the other ranch activities. Relax at the swimming-pool or just sit on the porch and watch the beautiful sunsets. Experience a western atmosphere at a place where you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend.
The big attraction at the Running-R Ranch is the horseback riding! Explore the adjoining State Park on horseback or join our experienced cowboys and cowgirls in the barn and learn about horses and ranching. You also can take lessons in the arena to improve your riding skills. Enjoy the great food in our big Round-up Room, where you can meet other guests, play pool or watch TV. Go hiking, biking, play ping-pong or horseshoe pitching or relax on the porch. And if you need to cool off just hop into our swimming-pool. Visit Bandera, the "Cowboy Capital of the World", with its unique shops, honkytonks, dancehalls and rodeos or check out some of the nearby area attractions...
