Emma Wilson visits the Mayan Dude Ranch in Texas on Channel 5′s Heaven on Earth show on 1st March 2012
If you fancy doing something different this summer and are looking for an adventure, a ranch holiday in the USA might be what you are looking for.
Tonight, one of Western & Oriental’s luxury ranches, Mayan Dude Ranch, will feature on Channel 5’s show Holiday: Heaven on Earth. You will see Anne Robinson’s daughter, Emma Wilson, journey north of San Antonio, Texas to spend several days on a working ranch, working as a cowgirl. She will learn to ride horses, lasso cows and enjoy the beautiful surroundings that Texas has to offer.
The show itself will only give you a glimpse of what it is like spending several days on a working ranch. From sunrise to sunset your day will be packed with horse riding, swimming, a little bit of snoozing and lots of delicious food. Remember, everything is bigger in Texas and the USA’s southern hospitality is famous. Throughout your stay you will be pampered and looked after with super-size meals. In the evenings, enjoy a delicious barbeque with ribs and brisket dripping in barbeque sauce and plenty of corn bread, mac and cheese, sumptuous steak and much, much more. Work off all the food with a barn dance or a house musical, and round the evening off with a fireworks display.
A short stop in San Antonio is necessary to purchase those all important cowboy hats and boots to complete your holiday and lifelong memories.
Combine your stay at Mayan Dude Ranch with a stop over in Las Vegas, Nevada. Visit the strip, catch a show, sample the nightlife and take a helicopter ride to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon to complete this unforgettable experience.
