McGinnis Meadows Cattle and Guest Ranch, Libby

#2 of 8 in Things to do in Libby
Ranch · Tourist Spot
We are a cattle & guest ranch up in Northwest Montana, only

100 miles west of Glacier National Park (,

with our main emphasis on our horsemanship and cattle program.

We take great pride in our horses as they are all very gentle, hard working

geldings that can do anything you point them at; be it driving cattle, trail

riding, or working on the finer art of Buck Brannaman style of horsemanship,

they can do it all! As far as the cattle working goes, starting the first

of June we are moving cows every day on 75,000 acres until the middle of

October. We also have around 100 yearlings that we keep around the ranch to

practice cutting, sorting, and roping with. So, if you want to work cattle

you can definitely do that here! All levels of riders are welcome, novice

to advanced.

  • This was an incredible experience. My wife is a horse riding person, me not so much, but after a week of riding at Mcginnis Meadows Ranch I now have a new love for riding.
  • Where do I start with praises for Mcginnis. It is hard to put into 200 words the special qualities of this place. I have been coming to the ranch for Winter Horsemanship for several years and it just keeps getting better and better. Shayne, Robbie, and Des are truly dedicated to the advancement of Brannaman horsemanship, in both the horse and the student. Hands down, the best quality instruction of horsemanship in the country. Shayne progresses and evolves with each passing day, and is happy to share this progess with his students. The staff and interns are respectful, helpful, and kind. The horses are top shelf, and are trustworthy, safe, and highly trained. Is it intense? YES. Is it hard? YES. But most things worth having in life are. I would recommend the ranch, and Winter Horsemanship, to anyone who is a looking for MORE. MORE quality in their horsemanship, MORE dedication to their progression, and MORE learning to feel FOR the horse and where he is coming from. There is no where else like McGinnis to gain the knowledge of how to move forward on your horsemanship journey. Your relationship with horses will change forever if you are willing to learn and change as well.
