Reach for the sky! Out here on Turpin Meadow Ranch, you are sitting squarely in the middle of the Western wilderness, reminiscent of the setting that you can see in many iconic western films. These movies feature heroes and villains crossing the powdered plains and wide open prairie on horseback in search of love, revenge and often a nice shot of whiskey. To help you get ready for your trip out West, here are five movies that can give you a glimpse into the life of a frontiersman. (Disclaimer: Turpin Meadow Ranch does not have: banditos, high-noon shootouts, western bar brawls, or Clint Eastwood. So please leave your six-guns at home)
