Medicine Lodge Horse Drive

Medicine Lodge Horse Drive
Idaho USA

If you have ever rounded up and driven horses in miles of open country, you know it's not just a ride in the park! Driving horses 20 miles a day through all kinds of terrain is a real adventure! It's possibly the most exciting thing you have ever done on horseback. It can be hot and it can be cold, it can be wet or dry or dusty, it can be fast and then slow, it can be challenging yet relaxing. It's a horse drive and anything can happen because it's the real thing!

Lynn, Lana and their family invite you to join them on selected dates and act as a wrangler as you participate in driving approximately 40 horses through miles of open country to their spring, summer or fall pastures. You will ride in an area of natural beauty with abundant wildlife including elk, bald headed eagles, coyotes and ground hogs. In the mornings you will awake to the smell of fresh coffee brewing over the fire and sizzling hot cakes on the griddle! Life just doesn’t get any better than this! During the day we round-up and drive the horses through desert canyon country and explore the fascinating countryside. At the end of the day there will not be a more welcome sight than riding over the ridge with the herd of horses, and spotting the chuck wagon and camp waiting for us.  Dinner is cooked over the open fire, a perfect end to another perfect day, with a hot and delicious meal, new friends and lots of stories and laughter about the day’s adventures! You will no doubt be ready to retire for the evening afterward to your tent or sleep under the stars if you wish, it's exhilarating!

If you're looking for a fast paced cowboy adventure filled with hard working fun, a Medicine Lodge Horse Drive is just the thing for you. Your accommodations are simple yet nice, well suited to the sort of  rustic fun vacation we offer. There is no electricity at the ranch, all rooms and cabins have propane lighting. The hot outdoor shower is a favorite for all guests. During the May trip dates we drive 80 to 100 head of horses from the winter to the summer pastures - on all other dates we drive 40 to 50 horses between the summer and fall pastures.
