The Dryhead Ranch is a real working ranch vacation. We are all about horses and an unforgettable horseback riding vacation that will thrill you for years to come. Our cowboys will give you a friend-for-life horse that will take you with him to ride on a hands-on cattle drive. We will move 200 head of cows and calves to our ranch pastures 50 miles north from our winter pastures in Wyoming. This is a challenging 4 day trail down the Old Sioux trail. We also offer adventure packed Horse Drives in the spring and fall of our guest season. We trail our various groups of horses 50 miles from our winter pastures into the Dryhead country where we spend our summer and fall season taking care of 800 head of cows and calves. We spend our summers branding calves, vaccinating heifers, gathering 12,000 acre pastures to rotate grazing, weaning calves, pregnancy test our cows, work strays out of our herd and many ranch maintenance jobs. Our cowboys also work horses to gentle them down for many levels of riders, they work with young horses to break and train them to use on the ranch and sell to horseback riding people.
We offer three comfortable cabins with private bathrooms and a restored bunkhouse, that are settled in the Dryhead Canyon just up from the historic buffalo jump, where our guest stay. We have clean, comfortable accommodations for a couple or singles who come to spend a week at the ranch. We are close to the historic Wild Horse Range and Big Horn Canyon Recreation area. Pictograph writings on the canyon walls and teepee rings to explore give our guests a taste of the history surrounding the ranch. In your quiet time you can search for Indian artifacts and buffalo bones. Dryhead Ranch offers a real western ranch atmosphere for a cowboy vacation of your dreams. You can learn how to rope, wrangle horses into the correl as the sun comes up over the Big Horn Mountains, there are lots of breath taking scenic photo opportunities, lots of space to hike, or enjoy the quiet moments as the evening fades into night. Iris and Jennifer and the rest of the family invite you to bring your family and friends and join them for a memorable week.
Come ride with our cowboys, it will change your life.
