Western cattle drive

Join us for a beautiful riding vacation, an adventurous cattle round up, and a time filled with lasting memories.

The 2022 Cattle Drive will take place entirely on a 5,300 acre ranch on the East side of Glacier National Park with Big Sky views like no other. You will be picked up at the airport and shuttled to the cattle drive ranch.

You will not only move the cattle, but you will rope, brand, inoculate, and castrate the calves. You will enjoy beautiful rides across the rolling hills while viewing the majestic Glacier mountains in the background. If you are lucky, you will see the wild horses running at full speed across the fields. It is a vacation like no other!

In the evenings after a delicious and filling dinner, you will enjoy sitting around the campfire with a beer getting to know your fellow riders. We might throw a couple of games at you too – expect lots of fun and laughter!

We will return you to the Kalispell airport on Saturday morning. From there you can either fly home or book the following week at the Bar W Ranch in Whitefish.

We have created a new cattle drive adventure that rounds out all of the experiences of a cattle round-up. Honoring the spirit of the traditional cattle drive, we want our guests to experience the best of what a cattle drive can offer.
