When it comes to the American West, riding horseback under a huge sky with the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop is about as “local” as it gets. And in 2014 and 2015, four ranches in Grand County—about 160 kilometres west of Denver—are encouraging Canadians to discover their inner cowboy or cowgirl by offering a $100 per-person discount.

The Maple Leaf Special applies at four all-inclusive ranches that are members of the Grand County Dude & Guest Ranch Association: BarLazyJ Ranch, CLazyU Ranch, Drowsy Water Ranch and Latigo Ranch. It’s available for adults and kids alike, and all four properties have children’s programs. Go on a cattle drive, do a little line dancing, try your luck fly fishing or work on your archery skills. And don’t forget your cowboy hat!
