California Ranch Vacations

Looking for somewhere sunny all year, and want to explore oceans, deserts and mountains during your western California ranch vacation? California riding holidays in the 'Golden State' is your perfect destination.

Once beyond the beaches and Hollywood you'll find California offers very diverse riding through expansive redwood forests, arid deserts (including the famous Death Valley), long stretches of coastal countryside, and mountain ranges including the Cascade Mountains, the Tehachapi Mountains and the Sierra Nevadas.

Rancho Contento

This picturesque ranch is located in a wonderfully historic and unique setting, at the end of a desert road in a small town between Palm Springs and Joshua Tree. Here, you can take a hike among desert blooms around the grounds, and connect with nature and wildlife – there are many birds including Quail and Red Tail Hawks. Wind down at the end of the day listening to the coyotes while stargazing into the Milky Way.
