I visited the TX Ranch for a week in late August 2012. I had a wonderful time.The trip was a wonderful balm to my spirits after a terrible year. I wanted to experience a working ranch, not a resort atmosphere and I received exactly what I hoped. I flew into Billings Montana and waited at the airport for a pickup... More

This ranch is the real thing, if you want the real cowboy/cowgirl experience this is it. Up in the morning, 730am breakfast, out on the horses all day, break for lunch, 12,1,2PM whenever roundup is done. Then ride more to get the rest of the cattle, back at the ranch for dinner. I have never done this before and what... More

Experience of a lifetime. This Ranch is an authentic working ranch. The horses are all excellently well trained and can get around extremely sure footed on some challenging terrain. The daily work includes wrangiling horses from the pastures, driving cattle and working them (vaccinations, branding, castrations and ear tagging). The owners Hip, Loretta and daughter Des are friendly and very... More

I just got back from the TX Ranch and I'm still overwhelmed by how amazing my trip was. I told my wife I wanted to go on a cattle drive and she got me a trip to the TX Ranch for my wedding present. The TX isn't fancy, it's not for those who don't want to work or get dirty.... More

I’ve been going to the TX Ranch since 2003 and have not been disappointed. It ain’t no dude ranch, just honest work with honest folks who enjoy the same principles. Fearing more find out about the place and books up, I highly recommend to those wanting to experience the out of doors and don’t mind a little work.

I've been to other ranches, in Arizona (x 2),Texas & New Mexico.They're o.k. and I enjoyed them, but none compare with TX. I first went there in 2009, have returned every year since, and will do so next year (2013). The staff Dez,Ryan, Christine and owners Loretta and Hip are spot on folk and helpfulness itself. The Ritz it ain't.... More

Read the other reviews for more details, but this was the best working ranch experience I ever had and I grew up on Ranches!!! The work and riding can be hard or easy - you choose. We choose hard and we needed to a week to recover. Scenery was spectacular. Food great. Living in tents comfortable, but definitely basic, but... More

When I booked my week at TX in 2010, I was a bit nervous because I had been on a horse only a handful of times in my life. But before the week was up, I was riding like a pro alongside the real cowboys, rounding up cattle in the open range. It really is a Western movie come to... More

I have been riding at the TX since 1997. My family and I continue to return to the TX simply because it's an experience we can never get enough of. The TX offers a vacation like no other. The beautiful scenery, elegant horses, helpful hands, unforgettable friendships and personal growth will keep you coming back year after year. There is... More

I stayed at the TX in 1996. Been around horses and cattle for the best part of 50 years in the UK. The TX is very different. It's rough tough and just what I thought ranch life would be. The ranch boss at the time was Will Tillett. A real character in every sense of the word. I felt privileged... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
If you are looking for an authentic experience that is what the TX is all about! We ride, work and manage our livestock in old fashion traditional ways. The ranch property and cattle spread for miles across scenic open range country. This means excellent ranch riding, seasonal cattle drives and a wide variety of seasonal working cattle activities. We ride for cattle and once a herd is gathered we start working the herd by roping calves to brand, castrate, doctor or what ever is necessary during the season. This involves a break from the saddle with the doctoring of calves, throwing calves and fun team work! We welcome guest participation, we'll be happy to help show you how it's done! Please keep in mind our ranch activities are not compulsory. If you wish to take time to laze around camp or take a ride on your own your welcome to do so. We also take our suburban out to meet the herd with lunch and supplies please feel free to go with our driver if you don't want to miss out on the cattle activities. During the evening we enjoy relaxing under a mired of stars around a warm open camp fire reminiscing the day with a favorite beverage, stories, tunes or guitar. We also enjoy a good roping match, cards, cribbage or what ever it may be. The TX has over 75 saddle horses to choose from.They are used for all our necessary ranch riding, cattle drives and cattle work. My husband and daughter Hip and Desiree know the horses inside and out. We can provide a good horse for every riding level. They are gentle natured, sure footed, they know how to pick a path with ease and they'll take good care of their riders. The attached photo was taken wrangling saddle horses to the camp corrals.Our cow camps are a great experience too! They are located at original home stead sites. We will return to camp everyday. Everything is set up and provided except your personal gear. Our camp has a base log cabin. This is where excellent ranch style home cooked meals are prepared and served. we want you to feel like part of the family and one of the cowboys. Each camp has simple out buildings such as out houses /toilet and showering facility. A wash table with basins and fresh water for daily washing and fresh water is readily available in the cabin with hot and cold drink mixes, etc.We provide free Billings, MT transportation to and from the TX Ranch. Guest capacity is 18 guests per week. Please feel free to contact us with your questions.Loretta TX Ranch ... more   less
