Ranching isn’t just an occupation, it is a heritage. A way of life based on tradition. An institute where change is carefully examined, and its value tested, before it is accepted. As eloquently sung by Don Edwards, in the song For Those that Lean to Lonesome: “ It’s all about horses, the cattle, and men, about the country, the work, and the pride…” At our dude ranch you can visit and experience this heritage with us!
Concho Hills is nestled in the foothills of New Mexico’s San Mateo Mountains. Our dude ranch offers you a true west vacation including: horseback riding, ranching activities, historical tours and a whole lot more!
Our dude ranch accommodations are modern and very comfortable. Some people say they are too luxurious for traditional ranch life! The main, hacienda style, adobe ranch house is where we gather to visit, eat, and relax. The main house is always open to our guests. The six guest rooms are a short distance away. They have modern conveniences: queen or twin beds, tiled bathrooms with showers or tub-shower combinations, and independent climate control. Take a look on our Lodging page!
Your activities at our dude ranch will depend upon your desires and experience. Our guests vary from those who wish to participate and learn about all aspects of ranching, animal husbandry, and land stewardship to those who just want to relax. Our dude ranch offers activities both in and out of the saddle. We wish to ensure everyone has a fun, entertaining, and rewarding stay.
