Cattle Range Riding Weeks

Ride Overview

Come to the Bitterroot Ranch for an authentic week of ranch cattle work. This week is not a contrived cattle experience, instead it will be a glimpse into the realities of ranch life. The ranch runs 400 head of Black Angus and Scottish Highland cattle on their grazing allotment in the Shoshone National Forest. The cattle graze on vast open mountain pastures with never ending vistas and the work required to keep everything well organized seems to go on just as long as the views. In additional to the standard trail riding and lesson options, range riding activities will include fixing fence, searching for cattle killed by grizzly bears or wolves, putting out salt with pack horses and potentially herding cattle from pasture to pasture, depending on need.

Accommodations & Food

Private log cabins along the east fork of the Wind River, meals taken communally in the lodge.
