Sandy Valley Ranch is a private ranch devoted to giving our guests the opportunity to experience the authentic life of the Old West.

Horseback riding, working cattle, rodeo, charreria, weddings, bull riding, and more. Our mission is to preserve, protect and honor the two great equestrian traditions of the West, that of the American Cowboy and the Mexican Charro.

Come and join us playing “Cowboy for Real”.

Welcome To Sandy Valley Ranch!

If you’ve always dreamed of “playing Cowboy for Real,” you’ve come to the right place. For more than 15 years we have been fulfilling dreams here in our special piece of the Great American West. Horses, cattle, round-ups, cattle drives over the mountains and through the mesquites, we do it all, and we’re always adding new adventures.

We’re easy to get to…as we like to say, we are “45 minutes and 100 years from Las Vegas.” Add a touch of the real West to the glitz and glamour of your stay in Las Vegas and you will give yourself an unforgettable vacation. And talk about the spirit of the West! Our friendly staff, talented wranglers, and great caterers, not to mention our beautiful, well-trained horses, will welcome you with all the hospitality that is legendary in the Old West.

There are two flags we fly on the pole at Sandy Valley Ranch. We are proud to respect, protect and nurture the horse culture of both the Mexican Vaquero and the American Cowboy. Both played a vital role in the development of the traditional horse culture of the American Southwest. Sandy Valley Ranch is a proud repository dedicated to preserving these two great horsemanship traditions.

We’re passionate about what we do, and we love sharing it with our guests. Whether it’s a horseback adventure, a traditional multi-cultural event, or a rollicking party, or team building event, we hope to see you soon on the trail!
