Can 48 Hours on a Texas Hill Country Ranch Help Boost Your Mood?

By  | 

Texas, in general, is known for being big and brazen. The Texas Hill Country is a region that personifies that, if any area of the state can actually humanize something, to the point where a visit to these parts can make you feel alive again. If you’ve ever wondered about whether taking a trip can lift your spirits, we’re here to say yes. In particular, just 48 hours on a Texas Hill Country ranch can go a long way toward boosting your mood.

Those who feel they are lacking self-confidence need only look to those who have turned “rags to riches” in this part of the Lone Star State, as witnessed in the stories of farmers and ranchers becoming Texas oil magnates over time. Anything is possible! If the possibility of a mid-life crisis is rearing its ugly head your way, consider the opportunity of booking time on a guest or dude ranch in the Texas Hill Country to effectively cut off your despair at the knees.

Although the lure of self-doubt can often be strong, think how much less of it you’ll feel after living out two full days as a cowboy or cowgirl in Texas! A Texas Hill Country ranch in Bandera, the “Cowboy Capital of the World,” can offer up a healthy dose of horseplay along with a luxurious western-style stay. It’s sure to help leave your uninspired mood behind, and have you shouting, “Yee-haw” at the top of your lungs!

Featuring acres of rolling hills, pasture land, and gorgeous Texas Hill Country vistas as far as the eye can see, a guest or dude ranch stay in Bandera can offer excellent private accommodations, a personalized itinerary (or the opportunity to simply “be” on-site, amidst the ranch atmosphere), and hearty meals, often prepared in a farm-to-table manner. Being in the open air on a daily basis is good for your health, not to mention your soul. It will help you blow off the cobwebs of whatever pending depression you might feel looming. If you haven’t ever ridden a horse, not to worry. Well-trained ranch staff members are generally great horse people themselves, and after getting to know you, they can make their best, educated guess as to which horse is most appropriate to pair with you.
