The Horse Prairie Ranch ("HPR") is an authentic working cattle
and guest ranch. That means that we are the real
thing....we are genuine. No "nose-to-tail" trail rides,
golf, spas, or tennis courts at the HPR. What we can
promise you is a taste of real "ranch life" underneath the big
sky of Montana. We move cattle on horseback nearly every
day. You can't imagine the difference in working on a
cattle ranch from horseback, compared with just riding on
Imagine... trekking through deep pristine Montana wilderness,
the freedom of driving cattle under the never ending, big blue
Montana sky, the delicate whisper of the swaying aspen groves,
the fresh scent of untouched sage brush, the rustle of a curious
moose in the willows, the soothing sound of a fresh mountain
stream flowing outside your cabin window, or the magical colors
of a powerful sun setting over the horizon. Discover it
all at the Horse Prairie Ranch.
We hope that you find the information you are looking for and
that you will email or call us for additional information and
availability. If it is a genuine Western cattle ranch
experience that you are looking for, and, you would like to stay
in your own private luxurious log cabin, we are your place.
Happy trails and we hope to see you soon!
