Packages:

Most of our guests stay at our horse dude ranch because they want to experience the thrill of horseback-riding. Here are our most popular packages, discounted for purchasing lodging and riding together!

Heartland Week-Long Retreat

How would you like to live on a real horse dude ranch for a 6 day and 5 night getaway? By popular demand Wildfire Ranch is now offering Heartland Week-Long Retreats for our guests wanting to live on our horse ranch. During your dude ranch experience you will receive equine therapy for depression and anxiety (if desired) or you can just choose to experience horse ranch life daily.

A typical dude ranch day is filled with barn chores like calling the horses in from pasture and thrilling to the thunderous sound of their hooves as they gallop in as well as feeding and watering and mucking stalls afterward. Then it is on to the fun activities which involve one-on-one contact with the horses as you learn to groom and tack them for riding. Additionally, you will learn all about horse behavior and the various breeds; the difference between English and Western riding styles; and how to walk, trot and canter any horse in any style.

Everyday during your dude ranch retreat you will either be receiving the enormous benefits of horse therapy for depression or experiencing unforgettable horseback trail ride adventures into the Bald Eagle State Forest. We will mix in a few horse lessons in our ring for those who want to better their riding skills and even horse training lessons for our guests dreaming of running their own ranches. To add some luxury to your week we include one massage therapy session with a professionally-licensed therapist nearby!

For those seeking healing from depression, spend 6 days and 5 nights on our ranch while receiving daily equine therapy sessions. Discussion sessions twice during the week will ensure that you are receiving the full benefits of your horse therapy sessions. In between therapy sessions you will receive horseback riding lessons and even trail rides into the state forest! Breakfast provided daily. Breakfast menu includes scrambled organic eggs with melted cheese, bacon, cinnamon raisin bagels with rolled homemade Amish butter and Orange Juice. A Campfire pit is available to you for night-time stories around the campfire. Another popular amenity is our 'Ponderosa Deck', a 1400 sq. ft. covered deck located on a 2nd story level with absolutely breathtaking views. Our guests love enjoying the Ponderosa for hours of reading, relaxing or cooking on the charcoal grill.

Cost*: $1,350.00 for one guest for 6 days, 5 nights and $270/night for shorter stays; $1,890 for 2 guests for the week (6 days, 5 nights) or $350/night for shorter stays'. Each additional person is $630/week. You will receive ten (10) total hours of horse activities throughout your stay. Please let us know if a guest is not planning on participating in any horse activities so that we can adjust the price.

*Fees can be made in payments, by cash or credit card

You will participate in all of the daily activities on our horse dude ranch while receiving equine therapy for anxiety, depression and despair, if needed.
