Off the Beaten Path

Our  Featured Horseback Vacation for Summer  2018!

Dates: July 15- July 21, 2018
Cost: $2495 per person or $4495 per couple

I'd been thinking about an  elite  week long  horseback riding vacation of this sort for quite some time.    Finally, it  all came  to me several years ago and  I think what the "Off  the    Beaten Path" week has  become since those formative years is  pretty unique."    We'd  been putting  together the  best    rides   I've done over the past thirty or more years and  put them together to offer the  most elite    week  of riding we've  ever done.    "You'll be horseback riding in the  the  most scenic  and  adventurous  country in Montana, from  Heart  Butte,  north  to  within  just miles  of the  Canadian  border."    Every  day,  one  great  Montana adventure after another.        Think buffalo jumps,  cattle,  grizzly,  cowboys and cowgirls,  native  culture and history,  think   that  great documentary "Unbranded."      Experience  the best of the best,  from the country , to the meals,  to the horses.    The best horseback riding vacation you will  ever  have!    

  • Arrival Sunday,    July 15th in the afternoon.  Departure Saturday, July 21st, noon.
  • Transportation available from the airport.
  • All meals, cabins   and horses included.        
  • Dinner  at the world  famous Cattle  Baron restaurant after a day or riding  adjacent to the  Canadian border.
  • Limited to  12  special  guests.
  • A group discount is available .

Monday  begins with  our journey to  Heart  Butte and  an  all  day ride  with  Tom Crawford,  my long time  friend .  We'll be  riding  the  Heart  Butte  Mountain  country  and  on  through  the culturally  rich  foothills of the  Blackfeet  Nation.    Our day  will  merge  into  an  evening at an  Indian  sweat lodge on the  Crawford  Ranch and finally  a  drive  home  to  Bear  Creek  Ranch  at dusk.   Tuesday  through  Friday  include  all day horseback riding adventures as  we  move  further  north  up the  Rocky Mountain  Front  Range  toward  the  Canadian  border.   I won't  give  away the whole week,  I want it to be a surprise  but  I will  add  that  Friday's dinner will be at  the  Cattle  Baron  restaurant  in  Babb.    You  will  never  eat  a better  steak  or  seafood  dinner  anywhere  on  the  planet.    We may very well  ride  horseback  right  to the front  doorstep!

A very special  Saturday  at Bear  Creek.    We'll  be having  an afternoon  barbecue  with some  very special  local  guests,  live music,  and  both  roping  and horsemanship  demonstrations.      Great  food,  great country,  and  great  camaraderie.    You can't  beat it.    I hope  you'll  be able to  join us.  

Feel free to  give me  a call  when  it's handy.
