Moore Ranch is a simple family working ranch situated in southwest Kansas, just 45 miles from the historic Dodge City. The ranch work is done the old-fashioned cowboy way, raising Texas Longhorn cattle year round. Located on 1, 400 acres, the ranch is also surrounded by 4, 500 acres of rolling hills and prairies. Moore Ranch is a wonderful choice for all levels of riders as well as singles, couples and groups, it can be combined well with a fly drive holiday around Kansas and Oklahoma.
A regular day at the ranch will see you awake at sunrise to the sound of the roosters crowing, followed by a hearty breakfast, saddling up the horses, riding ranch horses through the Longhorn herd, herding the cattle to new pastures and riding over the prairie. Meals at the ranch are home cooked and served family style at the table or outdoors on a picnic table. Please note alcohol can be consumed at the ranch and can be purchased from the local store.
