FULL DESCRIPTION OF LISTING
This is not your typical Guest Ranch and a very unique place. The accomodations and level of personal attention are boutique-like. With a culinary schooled chef the food is Western gourmet style. When it comes to riding this is not a nose to tail ranch. There are miles and miles of trails to ride on private, National Forest and BLM land in a variety of scenery.
This is not a nose to tail ranch. Experienced riders will find the horses of exceptional quality and beginning riders will find the staff very patient and accomodating.
Guests have the opportunity to participate in an authentic working cattle and cowboy experience with cattle work, riding, etc. Many of The Hideout's organized and experienced staff are year-round, which makes them very personable and experienced with the area.
Safety sets The Hideout apart and great attention is being paid to the hiring process, quality of horses, maintenance of equipment, communication, safety training, etc.
During the cattle drives & round ups, guests are guaranteed plenty of time on horseback as they move over 1,000 head of cattle across the ranch's quarter of a million acres of range.
