What to Bring for Pryor Mountains Cattle Drives

We suggest that you bring clothes that will layer easily.  A preference would be long sleeved t-shirts or shirts, vests, heavy jackets, sweatshirts, a cap that would cover your ears, (just in case its cold).  Our cowboys all have chinks and wear them on every ride, however you can make that choice after you get here.  Also, if our weather remains mild, a cowboy hat with a wide brim is best.  You should have gloves, wildrag or scarf, and our horses are used to spurs.  Standard equipment for riding are boots with a heel.  Tennis shoes or anything similar would be a bad choice.  If you have a waterproof slicker, or something heavier, this is the time to bring it.  They will really help against wind as well as any weather.  Rain slickers can be rented for $10 a week. You can bring your own saddle if you wish.  (perhaps you should check with the airlines as they will probably charge you extra, or you could ship it directly to the ranch). Remember any personal medications.

Linens and Towels are provided at the ranch. 

The ranch has a small ranch store, and many of these items are included and are better quality than what you might find at home.  Our most popular items are gloves, (2 pair might be a good idea) scarves or wildrags, well made leather chinks, vests and sweatshirts, both long and short sleeved t’s.  We have a good selection of cowboy hats, both women’s and men’s.  Our selection of slickers are the lighter to medium weight kind, but if you own a heavier one you might want to bring it.  We do have heavier sox, and hand warmers if needed.  The store also has some great gift ideas for family and friends.

We furnish a pommel bag that fits on the horn of your saddle in which you can store items that you might need to have with you.  These pommels will contain a pair of spurs and straps, a scarf and a bottle of water that you can refill at the ranch. 

Bring your guitar, if you want, and share our campfire. Brush up on your storytelling and jokes --- getting to know each other is a #1 priority.

Because we are so remote it is impossible to return to town to pick up extra items. If you don't have some of the items mentioned above, we have a small ranch store, which carries most of these items. In addition, if you don't want to purchase the items listed above, we have rental items available for your convenience.
