Guest Ranches and Cattle Drives
If you want to plan a true western holiday, guest ranches and cattle drives
are a must! You may ride a trail through breathtaking mountain scenery or help
real cowboys move cattle to better pasture.
Some ranches are located in mountainous areas, with spectacular views and an
abundance of wildlife. Ranches located in the plains and grasslands also sport
abundant wildlife, and views of the vast, open prairie are truly magnificent.
Activities and amenities vary on the type of ranch you choose to visit.
One of the truly unique experiences offered in the Rocky Mountain region is
being able to jump in and take part in exciting activities like cattle drives.
A real Western cattle drive allows you to ride the trails with experienced cowboys,
moving the herd and chasing down strays. Youll sleep out under the stars.
The days activities are sure to build up an appetite, so meals are hearty
out on the trail. Big breakfasts and western style dinners are a specialty!
Contact your nearest RMI office to get more information on a one of a kind opportunity
like a cattle drive or guest ranch experience.
