Ranch Information 


When is the ranch open and what day does riding begin?

The ranch is open from 28 May until 1 October 2017 and offers Sunday to Sunday stays.

 

What are the types of rides on offer and how often will I ride?

The extensive riding programme normally includes 2-3 hour morning and afternoon rides and an all day ride on a Saturday which enables you to explore the high country. Most weeks there will be the opportunity to herd cattle. The ranch offers vast expanses of riding terrain as well as a cross country course with over 80 jumps for experienced riders. It is not an intimidating course since no jump is more than 3 feet, but there are a variety of obstacles including ditches, drops, pickets, coops and walls. Guests are offered the chance to have recorded riding lessons on two mornings a week, with a maximum of 6 guests. The ranch has a strict hard hat policy.

 

About the horses

The ranch has 135 horses including Quarter Horses, Mustangs, Percherons, Appaloosas and Welsh ponies as well as Spanish and CMK Arabians.

 

What else can I do at the ranch?

In the first week of July and last week of September (additional fee), there is the opportunity to herd the cows, spread over 50 square metres of high mountains, forests, clearings and river valleys. On Friday afternoons there is a friendly team sorting competition in the arena which provides a great introduction to working cattle from horseback. Other activities available are fly fishing on the private stream and hiking in the great surroundings.

 

Is the ranch suited to children?

Children are welcome to come to Bitterroot Ranch however please note there is no kids program. There is a discount for age 15 and under. Whilst at the ranch, children can play with the animals around the ranch, go fishing and go on short rides.

 

What other attractions are there in the area?

Visit the town of Dubois, a western town with the largest collection of bighorn sheep and also the town of Jackson Hole for great dining and hotels. A trip to Yellowstone National Park pre or post your ranch stay is highly suggested.
