A-Bar-A Rd., Encampment, WY 82325, United States

Founded in the 1920s, A Bar A is one of the country's oldest and largest dude ranches, with 140,000 acres of hills, valleys, pastures, and woods. Thanks to an ancient insurance policy, it's also one of the few places where you aren't required to ride with a wrangler—as long as you know what you're doing. It's a cross between a serious horseman's paradise and a secluded, luxe resort with golf, tennis, and "Western elegant" cuisine from a Cordon Bleu-trained chef.

Riding: You're matched with a horse according to your size, temperament, and riding ability, and can ride twice a day, with or without your kids. Longer treks take you into the Savage Run Wilderness.

Capacity: 100 guests; 130 horses.
