What to Bring for Bighorn Mountain Ranch Hideout

With your comfort, safety, and enjoyment during your Western adventure in mind

Just three simple rules related to apparel when horseback riding:

* No sneakers
* No spurs
* Stampede string or chin strap for wide-brimmed hats.

We rent chaps and chinks and they are available for sale here as well.

The ranch is a year-round operation. Seasonal weather in Wyoming can be unpredictable. Best to be prepared. As they say, better to bring it along and not need it, than need it and not have it. Items flagged with an asterisk (*) indicates more information noted below.

It can get quite hot during the summer in Wyoming. And spring and fall temperatures can get rather cool, sometimes even cold. Winter? Cold and snowy, but that's snowmobilers' paradise up here. In general, bring clothing that can be layered. Suggested To Bring lists for horseback-riding season or snowmobiling season appear below.

To Bring  (Year-Round):
Camera (extra film if 35mm, or extra memory card if digital)
Long distance calling card to use with landline phones (cell phones don't work so well up here in back country)
Bathing suit
Lip balm and sunscreen

Spring, Summer, Fall (horseback-riding seasons):
Wide-brimmed Hat (stampede string or chin strap mandatory) and/or Riding Helmet
Riding boots Comfortable jeans -- we recommend Wranglers due to less bulky inseam on legs
Hosiery to prevent chafing wouldn't hurt (for both women & men)
Windbreaker or rain slicker
Leather gloves (more than one pair)
Long-sleeved shirts for protection against high-altitude sun
Lip balm and sunscreen
Warm sweater or jacket
Long underwear or tights for warmth on cool days
Bathing suit (for hot tub and/or landscaped swimming pond)

For your convenience, we supply:
Hair dryers, bathrobes, and complimentary toiletry items in guest rooms at The Hideout
Small saddle bag that goes over the saddle horn for your use (to carry water bottle, camera etc.),
Complimentary water bottle
We have laundry facilities for the exclusive use of our guests
An iron and an ironing board are also available in each guest room

For your convenience, we have available for purchase:

We sell long distance calling cards you can use with landline phones in your cabin. Except for jeans, The Store & Gift Shop stocks many necessary items of Western wear. There are other local Western stores with reasonable prices where it is possible to buy jeans.

Helmets and/or hats … Due to the inherent risks of riding horses, we recommend that our guests wear a riding helmet. However, riding helmets need to be professionally fitted; therefore, the ranch cannot provide them. Guests who choose to wear a riding helmet must bring their own. Wide-brimmed hats need to have a stampede string or chin strap so you don't have to dismount to retrieve your hat several times a day.

Proper riding footwear … For your safety, we cannot allow guests to ride in sneakers or otherwise unsuitable footwear. To minimize the risk of having one of your feet caught in a stirrup, we recommend that you ride in cowboy or riding boots. Leather boots with a shaft also provide more protection and comfort from the hard stirrup against your ankles.
If you do not have cowboy boots, your boots should pull off easily (therefore, lace-up boots are NOT recommended).
Footwear for riding should at least have: Smooth leather soles, Heels
Leave the spurs at home. Our horses are well trained and willing, so you don't need spurs. Guests will not be allowed to wear spurs when riding.

Winter season:
Thermal socks
Cowboy boots – thermal cowboy boots would be preferable.
Winter boots
Thermal jeans
Clothing that can be layered
Warm sweaters (fleece or wool).
Winter jacket
Snow pants
Thermal gloves
Snowmobiling attire – for your convenience you may rent snowmobiling attire for an additional charge
