Cattle Round Ups
Here's your chance to experience both the neon fantasy of Las Vegas and the play cowboy for real with a one or two night round up adventure at Sandy Valley Ranch.
For those who enjoy a more adventurous vacation, there's nothing like the thrill of an authentic Western Round Up. Dress like they did 100 years ago complete with chaps, dusters, hats, (provided by the Ranch) and join us on the range. Wranglers and guests test their skills as they "round up" cattle from the plains and canyons of the majestic Clark Mountains and herd them into holding corrals. Guests learn to throw a rope, saddle and bridle their horse, tend to the baby horses and calves, and engage in other real Ranch activities. After an adventurous day "playing cowboy for real," guests enjoy a campfire and fall asleep to a coyote chorus (if the varmints aren't feelin' lazy).
Sandy Valley ranch provides all cowboys with hearty chuck wagon meals, tents, sleeping bags, pillows, flashlights, etc. as well as transportation from designated locations on the Las Vegas Strip.

Horseback Trail Rides
Imagine riding through the desert, watching a summer sunset from the back of your horse, or taking off for a day or just a few hours to explore 197,000 acres of prime sage and mesquite range land, or trying your hand at chasing ornery cattle into pens in our arenas. It's called TEAM PENNING! It's a timed event, and beginners can do it.
We offer trail rides of all types. Whichever you choose, you can ride the range, play with cows, and enjoy lip smackin' Western barbeque. Then, if you're up to it, try your hand at traditional cowboy activities like the bucking barrel, horse shoe pitching, roping, or cow pie tossin' (gloves provided). For the dinner trailrides we do a cowboy campfire. Whatever you choose, we'd be mighty proud to show you the way to the heart and soul of the Old West.
