Join the Bear Creek Ranch crew for a Montana cattle drive.

We’ve been in the cattle drive business for more than twenty-five years and worked with the biggest and the best outfits on the Blackfeet Reservation for that entire time. You’ll be treated to a week of an authentic western tradition, moving the cattle onto the powerful and growing green grass on horseback under the shadow of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. This part of the West, most specifically on the land of the Blackfeet Nation, is still primitive and raw, far off the beaten path of the modern world we love to leave behind. You’re going to see some of the most spectacular country on the planet and you’ll be doing so on horseback.

One of the more underrated elements of a great horseback adventure are the folks you’ll be meeting and working with on the job. You’re going to be making some lifelong friends with other guests on the cattle drive but also with the gang running the show. You’ll be riding and visiting with some of the best horse hands and cowboys anywhere. The Blackfeet Indians are wonderful folks, rich in culture and tradition, wrapped up in the history of this nation, full of joy, humor, and hospitality. Life doesn’t get any better than a week right here.

Every day begins with a huge breakfast at Bear Creek Ranch. Lunch is normally on the trail and dinner is back at the ranch later in the evening
