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

This was Fantastic the scenery , people and host were really nice, the tents were big and roomy they had i mini wood stove inside and was easy to keep the tent warm on cold nights , the food was simple and good but the dinners were really good , Chris the ranch hand took personnal interest in the guest to help feel comfortable, I just cant say enough good things about this place , ya know when you go somewhere and when you leave you just cant wait to get back thats the the way Hip and Loretta make you feel . I would recommend this place to everyone and yes iam already making plans to return for lonewolf 2020

My wife visited the TX this September, here's her review: This place is just amazing, this was a lifelong childhood dream come true, I came here with three friends and an open mind to any challenge that was thrown at us, and boy it didn't disappoint! This place is a real get down dirty, hands on working ranch. Riding all day, rounding up cattle and horses, branding, injecting, ear tagging, castrating and them some - just amazing. The views of the Big Horn mountains will be etched in my brain forever, the scenery is just breathtaking. The horse are beautiful quarter horses, hard working as you would expect, and well cared for. It was a pleasure to ride such well trained horses and I loved my boy Sniper with all my heart. The team, Hip, Loretta, Desi, Sam, Jenny & Curtis were lovely, welcoming and funny hosts and it was a pleasure to spend a week with these hard working people. You are well fed by Jenny, which was needed especially after a hard day out working. I will be coming back very soon, and hopefully for many years to come, thank you guys, love you all, Kim xxxx

Life does not get better than this! Just spent a week on the TX ranch rounding up cows and horses. Amazing scenery, full on days riding, branding, inoculating, tagging and castrating cows with a brilliant crew of other cowboys and cowgirls who had also signed up for the week. You are so looked after by Hip, Sam, Des and especially Jen in the kitchen who fuelled us up each day. It's a real working ranch experience and a trip I will definitely be doing again. Loved it from start to finish!

we had a fantastic time! rounding up cattle, assisting with branding, vaccinating and castrating. a true ranch experience. the food was fantastic- thank you Ms. Des! I would not hesitate to recommend TX if you want a real ranch experience. The only negative comment I have is there needs to be a plan in place when someone gets hurt. I would recommend a satellite phone be on hand as there is no cell service. there should also be a map or driving directions to the ranch on the website.

Je suis amoureux de la nature depuis mon tout jeune age,j'ai réalisé un reve que tout cowboy et Cowgirls voudrais réalisé un jour.Parlons un peu du TX tout le personnel a été d'une gentillesse et d'un professionnalisme incroyable. Nous ont étais un groupe de 6 et ont à tous adoré.Merci à toute ma gang du Quebec.
