What to Bring for Lonesome Spur Ranch

Upon arrival at Billings, we will give you the opportunity to visit Shipton's Big R ranch supply store.  You can purchase any of the designated items at that time. Bring your own alcohol! Drinking Age for Alcohol: 21 years old (it is recommended for all persons under 35 to carry ID). All rooms are equipped with a small refrigerator to store your perishable items, beer, and wine. There is also a washer/dryer for use during your stay. Please bring washing powder if you want to use the washer.

It is important that you bring warm and dry clothing. May and June can be cool and it can snow around that time of the year. Fortunately we haven’t really had to cope with extremely bad weather – but preparation is everything.

We provide a small saddle bag fitted to the saddle to put your lunch in.

Note: Gratuities and transfers can be paid by cash or credit card- take some cash with you (10% of trip cost) it you'd like to pay by cash.

To make your stay at the Ranch more enjoyable, we have compiled the following recommendations for clothing and essentials.  When considering your clothing, please consider layering.  This is the easiest way to add or subtract clothing during a ride!
