These are our adult only weeks, where the mood is a little more sanguine and interactions more erudite.

Singles Week

square dance

Cattle Drives

Be a cowboy for a week! Our most popular event. Coincides with Singles/Adults weeks.

If you ever wanted to attend a Cattle Drive but weren't sure what to expect, we highly recommend reading Jim Balzotti's Custom Ranch Vacation Guide, because he will keep you in stitches with his first adventure on the range!

Wilderness Pack Trips

1, 2 or 4  night overnight horse riding trips exploring scenic Montana high country areas in the Kootenai National Forest abounding with beautiful mountains, diverse wildlife and wildflowers. Ages 15 and up with previous horse experience. Limited spots on first come/first serve basis. Space available only with prior reservation, written confirmation and weather permitting.
