The Malibu Dude Ranch has been honored with premier status as one of the top 50 ranches in the world. Last month, the American Professional Rodeo Assoc. Inc. (APRA) issued the Best New Rodeo Series in 2013 award to the ranch. Earlier this year, the ranch was the recipient of Gene Kilgore's Worlds Best Ranches Award. The Internet's Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Winner was given to the ranch a second consecutive year.
Located in Westfall Township near Milford, the ranch provides guests with a western equestrian experience with trail rides and opportunities for numerous other onsite activities. Dr. Allan Detweiler who purchased it in 2010 with his wife Phyllis said, "I'm so proud of my staff!" Reviews have highlighted the family atmosphere extended to guests by the Detweiler family and their employees.

The APRA honored the ranch for its championship rodeo professional events. The plaque bears a horseshoe with a bull rider in its center, which is the main rodeo event.
Gene Kilgore's award is issued for high quality service and hospitality, a dedicated equestrian program, achieving Best of Class standing among dude ranches, and excellent testimonials from guests. Kilgore is a best selling author on ranch vacations in the U.S., Canada and South America.
