Around the world, people take the time to go on vacations, either by themselves, with a few friends, or with family. The destinations vary from a relaxing tropical vacation in Hawaii or Mexico, to being one with nature on a camping trip in the mountains. Many spots across the globe are become great for getting away from the everyday life, but recently, a new vacation destination has become incredibly popular.

Growing up, at some point or another, we have been exposed to Western movies. As a kid we ran around the house, pretending that we were riding our favorite horse and catching all the bad guys, while John Wayne and Clint Eastwood did the same on T.V. Now, there are ranches, stables, and trail riding businesses all over the world that cater to people who want to experience that freedom of riding a horse into the sunset.  You can plan a trip and go riding across a beach in the Dominican Republic, go trail riding up in the Rocky Mountains in Jasper National Park, Canada, or hang out and rope some cattle on one of the many well established ranches in the United States. Many of these spots have evolved from just being working ranches to becoming places that the whole family can go and relax.
