A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Send us your riding photos at the Rancho and you could win big!



Every day at the Rancho our guests enjoy riding, free as a bird, through the beautiful Mexican highlands. There are no fences, just hundreds of miles to explore on horseback. If you’ve been here, you know that whether you enjoy a slow relaxing walk, a fast-paced gallop, or something in between, there’s something for everyone.  Many say, we offer the best horseback riding in the world.

Well…we agree! And we’re very proud of our horses and the riding we offer. But it just sounds like boasting when we say it!  So we’d like your help. Testimonials from our guests build our business and allow us to continue offering amazing riding year after year. That’s why we’re asking friends of the Rancho to look through their photo albums and send us the ONE photo they think exemplifies riding here. Those who also include a short story describing the photo have an opportunity to win big. Here’s how:

1) Look through your vacation photos at the Rancho and choose ONE riding photo that you think exemplifies riding at the Rancho and your riding experience.

2) Write a short story (no more than 500 words) that describes the photo, the moment it was taken, and why riding at the Rancho is better than anywhere else in the world. Include descriptions and details so anyone who reads it can imagine themselves in your place.

3)  Type your story in Microsoft Word and include the following information in the document:

  • Your full name as well as the city, state, and country you are from
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • A copy of the photo you are referring to

4)  Email the Word document and a high resolution version of the photo to Jenny at the Rancho (rancholascascadas@live.com) by June 12, 2016.  DEADLINE EXTENDED TO SUNDAY, JUNE 26, 2016.

Each entry will be judged on the quality of photo, ability to tell a compelling story, and demonstration of the amazing horses and/or riding at Rancho Las Cascadas. The top three entrants will receive one of these great prizes:

  • First Place:         5 free nights for one person at Rancho Las Cascadas – valued at USD $1750
  • Second Place:    3 free nights for one person at Rancho Las Cascadas – valued at USD $1050
  • Third Place:        25% off an entire stay at Rancho Las Cascadas

Up to 12 of the top entries will be highlighted in a special eBook and placed on the Rancho Las Cascadas website.

So start looking through those photo albums. We’re excited to hear from you!
