What's the Difference

There are few places left in this entire world where you can experience silence and simplicity

If you are new to dude ranching, you’ll need to take some time to consider what kind of ranch is right for you. Every Montana Ranch has their own unique personality but to help you understand some of the differences in ranches, we have divided them into the following categories:

  • WORKING DUDE RANCH
    Montana Working Ranches allow you to experience life as a cowboy - with cattle drives, round ups and ranch work.
  • DUDE RANCH
    At Montana Dude Ranches horseback riding is the central activity. Fly-fishing and other varied western activities await you.  
  • RESORT DUDE RANCH
    Montana Resort Ranches offer western activities with higher end amenities and dining experiences.
