The Bitterroot Ranch offers the best and most diverse horseback riding in North America at the Bitterroot Ranch near Dubois, Wyoming. The Shoshone National Forest borders the ranch and Yellowstone National Park is just fifty miles away across unspoiled, mountainous wilderness. Enjoy constantly changing vistas with the Wind River and Absaroka mountains always in sight.

The Bitterroot Ranch has a broad range of horseback riding activities at the ranch includes riding lessons with certified instructors to the intermediate level, a cross country jumping course for experienced riders, team sorting, herding cows on the grazing allotment in the national forest, cattle drives, roundups, and pack trips. Wyoming trail rides include cantering on open plains, winding through pine and aspen forests, clambering up rocky gorges and crossing rushing streams that pour out of the mountains. Antelope, mule deer, elk, coyotes, and the occasional bear can be spotted. The Bitterroot Ranch hosts training clinics with world renowned clinicians Linda Tellington-Jones and Anna Twinney and horseback riding clinics with Donna Snyder-Smith and Sue Falkner-March. Few other dude ranches share our philosophies and passion for horseback riding.

  • Unique among horse riding vacations. Staff from both all over the USA and Europe. Arabian horses. Different trail rides each morning and afternoon. Staff tries very hard to accommodate each guest's needs and preferences. Rides for different levels of expertise offered both in the morning and the afternoon. Optional instruction two mornings each week at no additional cost. Yoga offered at no additional cost — gourmet meals with excellent wine at supper. Library and pool table in the main lodge. Piano in the living room. Guests come from all over the US and from Europe. Some weeks guests assist, if they want to, in moving the cattle from one grazing range to another. Part of my heart stay here.
  • The Bitterroot has been one of the greatest places to work and I couldn't be happier to have gotten this opportunity to come and live amongst such beautiful countryside for the summer. There is so much to look forward to up at the ranch, but the people are by far the most exciting. The Bitterroot staff are the most fun and rowdy people I have ever come across, there's no one quite like them. So if your looking for an adventure and some great people to go on it with I'd say the Bitterroot is the place to be.
