|A REAL WORKING RANCH EXPERIENCE|
Howdy pardner. Read (and ride!) along and see why Esquire Magazine and Fineliving.com have designated Epic Trails Authentic Montana Cattle Drives one of the most critically acclaimed cattle drives in the world. Epic Trails Cattle Drives are set on traditional working cattle ranches - not on a dude ranch or some fancy dancy resort. It's the real thing... a 29,000 acre working cattle ranch right smack dab in the middle of the most beautiful big sky country you will ever see.
Folks come from all walks of life to learn what it's like to live the life of a real cowhand. You will learn to ride herd, throw a lasso and round-up strays. You will experience a whole new perspective as you view the panorama and you will actually help round-up and move more than 250 head of cattle across prairie, between coulees and through farmland.
|TRADITIONAL COWHAND ADVENTURE|
It all begins as you arrive Sunday afternoon. The rest of the day is filled with getting acquainted with your new surroundings and new friends. The most important new friend is, of course, your horse. A ranch horse will be matched to your riding ability and an experienced cowhand will instruct you how to saddle, bridle and take care of your new "buddy". The remaining time will be used to set up your tent and get settled in for the night. A wonderful cowboy dinner and campfire will mark the closing of the day.
Monday morning comes quick, up at the crack of dawn to begin your first day as a cowhand. There's no lounging; a quick cup of coffee, saddle your horse, break camp, relax briefly as you enjoy breakfast, jump on your horse and the round-up begins.
Before you know it, it's time for lunch. With the cattle rounded-up and half a day's work under your belt, it's time to relax. A couple of hours to rest the horses and cattle and it's off again. You'll ride a few more hours 'til it's time to call it a day. But the night has just begun! After a marvelous dinner, stories around the campfire will set the stage for a lively evening. Don't forget, though - early to bed, early to rise.
This same schedule will pretty much be followed throughout the remaining visit.
