Montana: Cowboys to Wranglers Team Experience

Between the Rocky Mountains in the west, the Great Plains in the east and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem to the south – this area of North America is made for horse riding.

Dotted amongst this striking scenery are working ranches, the last bastions of the Old West, where horse riding remains a way of life. Cowboys drive cattle into corrals and grizzly bears, bison and elk roam freely through the unspoiled wilderness. There is epic horse-riding year-round here, but the scenery dramatically changes with the seasons. In the summer there is world- class fly-fishing and white-water rafting on pristine rivers. In the winter there is sledding and skijoring. Depending on your timing, the Pelorus network can provide expert wranglers, anglers, naturists and mountain guides.
