Enchanted Springs Ranch Keeps The “Wacky” West Alive

In Texas, Enchanted Springs Ranch is known as one of the state’s top tourist attractions. Now, it is receiving national recognition from one of the nation’s most popular websites.

The ranch, located just over 30 miles from San Antonio, has been listed as one of America’s top “Wacky Family Attractions” on Oprah Winfrey’s official website, oprah.com. The feature describes a trip to the Boerne ranch – including wagon rides, a visit to the ranch’s Wild Animal Park (home to Longhorn cattle, horses, zebras, antelope, elk, emus, llamas, and even buffalo), and performances by Pistol Packin’ Paula – as “an experience cowboys and girls can’t resist!”

“When Oprah puts her name on something, people pay attention," says Steve Schmidt, Co-Owner of Enchanted Springs Ranch. "So to be featured on her website is a nice surprise and a real thrill for us.”

The recognition from oprah.com comes as Enchanted Springs Ranch prepares for National Travel and Tourism Week (May 9 – May 17); to celebrate, during that week the ranch will offer a $2 discount off the regular ticket price to customers who mention Oprah.

In June, the ranch will begin Cowgirls Summer Camp, a one-week overnight program for girls ages 10 to 14; a new session will begin every week from June 7 to August 7.

Vicki Schmidt, Co-Owner Enchanted Springs Ranch, says, “Here at Enchanted Springs Ranch, the West isn’t just wild, it’s wacky. I can’t think of another location where you can find cowboys around one corner and emus around the next. So come on down and see what else you can find!”

Enchanted Springs Ranch (which opened in 2004, on nearly 90 acres of land) is also an active film set, and has been the shooting location of choice for television programs for PBS, MSNBC and the History Channel; commercial campaigns (including one featuring George Strait); and feature films, including Palo Pinto Gold. Director Anthony Henslee’s family Western recently won awards for “Best Western Film” and “Best Director” at the Trail Dance Film Festival in Oklahoma, and has been nominated for three Remi Awards – “Best Western”, “Best Director”, and “Best Texas Film” – at WorldFest in Houston. In May, Palo Pinto Gold will screen at the Big Island Film Festival in Hawaii, as well as the Gone With The Film Festival in Los Angeles.

From West-East Investment to East-West Investment
While many decry the spate of recent purchases of American and European assets by Chinese investors as potentially dangerous and destabilizing, the current period of East-West investment is merely part of the cycle of investment that flows back and forth from West to East and East to West. In the 1980’s, Japan’s appetite for all things American was famous. Japanese investors bought stakes in everything from U.S. corporations to landmarks such
