This is an authentic working cattle and quarter horse ranch located in the Dryhead Canyon on the east slopes of the Pryor Mountains, south of Billings, Montana. They invite you to join them at the ranch and experience a lifestyle you’ve only seen in the movies!At the ranch you can experience your first real cattle drive or maybe brand a calf and ride a well-trained cow horse. Cowboys have taken care of this ranch since 1898 and will ride with you on 20,000 acres of open grassland country while taking care of about 800 head of mother cows and their calves, and about 50 head of mares and their colts.
Your stay at the ranch may include, branding, vaccinating, roping, mini-veterinary needs, holding herd, salting, fencing, rotating pastures, bull gathering, weaning calves, pregnancy testing cows, weaning colts, working mare bands, occasional horse drives and rounding up strays.
You can be sure of many hours in the saddle caring for both cattle and horses.Food is plentiful western style and guests eat three meals a day with both the family and cowboys in the cookhouse. Ranch home-style meals are the order of the day, with tender Angus beefsteaks, top sirloin roast, healthy vegetables, fresh salads, homemade desserts and lots of chocolate chip cookies for the kid in all of us.
Children are welcome from mid-July to the end of August and they have special rides available for the under 12 years as they cannot get involved in the everyday cattle work of the ranch.Be sure to check-out the Dryhead Ranch cattle and horse drives on page 41.
