Almost everyone has a dream of living the life of a cowboy.
Carefree, relaxed, tough as nails, horseback riding, sitting around the campfire eating beans and telling stories. Well, these dreams can come true! Treat yourself to a unique place. Meet long-cherished childhood dreams and pay homage to the heyday of the Wild West.
We are on a journey into the year of 1880, when the West was still untamed and wild. Life was rough and so were the people. Experience it much as they did; we offer spectacular views and horseback riding as just one of our feature.
Breathtaking scenery, 8200 acres of unspoiled land with stunning sunsets as your backdrop. Creek Ranch provides a truly memorable hideaway for once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Our Working Guest Ranch features sweeping views of sun-splashed terrain, red desert landscape filled with huge arroyos and canyons, famous tumble-weeds, panoramic scenery and wildlife. Stay where cowboys and Indians used to fight, feel the spirit and breathe the air of the Wild West.
At the Creek Ranch we usually accommodate 6 – 8 at the same time, which allows us to keep it personal, authentic and as customized as possible.

Horses, Horseback riding and Cattle work
Our most popular activity is horseback riding. The horses are Quarter Horses, Appaloosas and Paint Horses, that live, accordingly to their natural habitat, in a herd on big pastures. We are very proud of our horses – all good, honest, willing ranch horses. They will give you some wonderful rides into a truly unforgettable country. We know you’ll enjoy them, whatever your riding level – novice, advanced, or in-between.
Trail rides in this indescribably beautiful and diverse landscape are a producer of unforgotten memories. Our trails will lead you to old ruins of long forgotten days. The Pecos River flows about 5 km through the North of the ranch and the Carizzo Creek with it’s springs runs about 4 km along the Northwest border. You can go swimming or fishing in the Pecos River and a picnic here is always a highlight!
A lot of work is still traditionally done on horseback, e.g. driving cattle from pasture to pasture, controlling/repairing water tanks and fences or checking the health status of the cattle. Twice a year (spring and fall) there are cattle brandings at which friends and neighbors help, followed by a barbeque and campfire. The friendly and always humorous Creek Ranch team is happy about any kind of help with the ranch work. You will become a part of the family, part of our daily ranch life. You will enjoy the familial atmosphere, because for all that hard work, there is a lot of fun!
