Itinerary for Devils Tower View Working Ranch

Each morning, during breakfast, our cowboys will explain the plan for the day.
Before breakfast, they have gathered the horses from their pasture and put them into the corrals, where a horse will be assigned to every guest for the day. During your stay with us, you will have the chance to try several horses.
We usually ride for 3-4 hours in the morning, return to the ranch for lunch and ride again in the afternoon for another 3-4 hours.

Please, note that there is not set program as the work that needs to be done will vary depending on the time of the year. There may be times when no cattle work is required. In that case, we will just ride for fun, enjoying the beautiful landscape.

April-June: Calving Season
We need to ride to the herd to check on the babies every day to be sure that they are ok.
At the end of the calving season, we will have a branding which we still do like in the "old west" with horses, ropes, sweat and dust.

July-August: Cattle Drives for pasture management
At that time, we usually have about 1200 head of cattle. The cowboys will explain to the guest the cattle drive techniques.

August-October: Cattle Round-Up
We will begin our roundup of cattle and choose which ones to keep and to sell before winter. The cattle we keep will be moved to the winter pasture.
This is a period of hard work which involves long riding days.

Apart from cattle work, you can ride in our arena and practice team penning , breakaway roping , barrel racing and/or cutting horse.

Non-Riding Activities
During the week, we may have a free day off the ranch where we will go and visit local sites. Non-riding days are decided from time to time together with all guests. During rainy days, more excursions are offered to guests to make the most of the vacation.
There are many attractions worth visiting around the ranch, including Devils Tower (First national monument of America), which is a few miles from ranch, the Black Hills, Mount Rushmore, Badlands National Park, Deadwood etc. 
During that day, transportation is included but meals need to be paid extra.

When possible we will also go see Rodeos, Horse auction and other interesting local events.
