I visited the ranch with friends. We didn't see Lonnie for the first day or so. Didn't really do much riding either for the first couple of days. We had some amazing times but this was down to the wranglers Mike and Shane NOT Lonnie and Elaine. In our last day, everyone was going branding (it had got rained off... More

I have stayed at Lonesome Spur Ranch now on two occasions and can honestly say it is a fantastic experience. As a boy I had always wanted to go out to America and ride like they do on those western films. I wanted to get stuck in to ranch work and feel every bit the part of an old fashioned... More

The lonesome spur ranch is a beautiful place in the midst of Montana. My friend and I had been to the ranch last year and decided to come back again because we loved it so much! We were not disappointed. The landscape in Montana is breathtaking and even more so on the back of a horse. The people that run... More

It was every thing I ever hoped it would be....and more. I wanted to experience life on a real rustic, authentic working ranch. That's exactly what it was. I felt like I was staying with ' old friends ' and felt completely at home. The only fault I can find is entirely my own. You must go for longer than... More

We booked this trip as a 21st Birthday gift for my daughter with Ranch Riders who were very efficient and everything turned up when they said it would. Now if you're wanting 5 star luxury, don't go here...but if you want to experience some of the loveliest people, stunning scenery and most beautiful horses please go, as soon as you... More

I have to say the two weeks I spent at Lonesome Spur were two of the best of my life. Montana itself is an amazing place with such an honest and laid back attitude to life. Not to mention it is exceptionally stunning and well named as 'big sky country'. I arrived late at night in Billings and stayed at... More

i returned to the lonesome spur ranch this october as the first snow was melting away, unfortunatly we didnt get to ride as much as on other visits, if the ground is wet it can be unsafe to ride ( both for horse safety and the guests). we were still able to help one of the ranches neighbours to gather...

I have been lucky enough to return to the ranch twice this year. On both occasions I have had a wonderful time, and am always sad to leave. When I am there I feel like part of a team. The owners Lonnie and Elaine, and the guys and gals that work there are all really friendly and will do there... More
