Bitterroot Dude Ranch
The typical week begins with a short demonstration of our riding techniques followed by an evaluation of the guests’ riding style and ability. We have a broad selection of horses and it is important to your enjoyment that we make the best possible match between horse and rider. Experienced guides lead small groups, divided according to ability, on 2 - 3 hour morning and afternoon rides.
Video taped lessons are available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for riders wishing to improve their skills. On Friday afternoons there is a friendly team sorting competition, which provides an introduction to working cattle. A final all day picnic ride is scheduled for Saturday. In July, August and September this often includes moving cattle to different parts of our grazing allotment in the National Forest.
The Bitterroot is open from MAY 25 to OCTOBER 1 with week-long stays running from Sunday to Sunday (except for the Fall Cattle Roundup and Pack Trips).
There is a weight limit of 200 lbs. for all riders.
