Welcome to the Horse Prairie Ranch!

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 trails.

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!
