Our guests are invited to come to the ranch between May and October.
SET SAMPLE WEEKLY RANCH ITINERARY
We usually have cattle work happening May, June, September, and October Only. This happens when the cattle need to be worked (ie. Gathered, sorted, branded and cattle drives to new grazing…etc) and guests are encouraged to get involved. But it should be noted that for the safety of both the guests and the horses that this activity is very much weather dependent and is totally at the discretion of the ranch.
On Sunday after arriving at ranch between 1pm and 3pm there will be 5:30 Ranch orientation meeting and signing riding liability forms. Supper will be at 6:00 PM, and after supper we will have horse safety and saddles will be fitted for each of our guests.
On Monday after breakfast we will select a suitable mount for our guests and ride until afternoon, enjoying a packed lunch with the horses and scenery. Roping lessons take place before supper at the ranch. After supper will be a camp fire to enjoy the evening stars.
The Cody Nite Rodeo starts June 1st and runs thru August 31st. Located at Stampede Park in Cody, Wyoming, this is fun entertainment for the whole family. Offering the full range of rodeo events, bareback, saddle bronc, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing and of course the fan favorite of bull riding. For the kids, there is also the calf scramble, which is one of the highlights of the night. Doors open at 7:00 pm with the rodeo starting at 8:00 pm each. Rodeo tickets are $20.00 per person.
Irma’s Buffalo Bill Cody Restaurant and Saloon is Fancy enough for royalty. The Irma is home to cowboys and cowgirls wanting a great meal with great atmosphere. Offering their famous roast beef or a full buffet dinner, the Irma is a stop well worth it. If you’re not interested in eating, slide into the Silver Saddle Saloon and have a drink while enjoying the ambience. If it’s action you want, enjoy the gunfight that takes place outside the front of the Irma at 6:00 pm Monday thru Saturday. This is a stop you won’t regret.
Another option on our Cody excursion is to visit the Buffalo Bill Historical Museum also located in Cody Wyoming has 5 museums under one roof. The Buffalo Bill Museum celebrates the life and legend of Buffalo Bill himself. The Whitney Gallery of Western Art displays art from the western life style. The Native American culture, art and heritage is all celebrated in the Plains Indian Museum. The last two areas of the museum are the Cody Firearms Museum and the Draper Museum of Natural History, which displays the greater Yellowstone ecosystem and their interaction with humans and nature.
Please note that May, September and October we take our guests to the Historic Custer Battlefield and Museum instead of Cody. This a set sample of our itinerary which is subject to change due to weather and seasonal activities at the ranch.
