Paintrock Canyon Ranch

June 2-7, 2024

Join us for a five night special event at Paintrock Canyon Ranch designed specifically for advanced riders.

The Program

This week is designed for advanced riders who are comfortable at a walk, trot, and canter in open spaces and in a group.

Spend four days on horseback taking in the vast and varying landscapes of the ranch and surrounding area. Canter through the Red Hills at sunset, ride all the way up Paintrock Canyon to the Bighorn Basin, and spread out to trot through sagebrush fields below the Red Wall. See parts of the ranch that are only reachable on longer and faster paced rides.

Accommodations

The accommodations at the Paintrock Canyon Ranch are designed to put you as close to nature as possible, but with all the comforts of home. Large, private safari style tents are stylishly furnished with full-sized beds, bedside tables, dressers and chairs. These sturdy, elegant tents are located next to the Paintrock Creek at the entrance to the spectacular Paintrock Canyon.

All meals will be creatively prepared by a private chef, featuring Ranchlands beef and local produce and dairy whenever possible. Meals at the ranch will be seated, but casual and friendly and accompanied by wine and beer. We are happy to accommodate all dietary preferences with advance notice.

Sample Itinerary

8:00 a.m. Enjoy a warm cup of coffee and breakfast next to the creek.

9:00 a.m. Collect your lunch for the day and meet your horse and wrangler at corrals.

Paintrock Canyon Ranch

The Paintrock Canyon Ranch sprawls across northern Wyoming and is made up of rolling meadows and streams carving through high alpine valleys. The ranch’s landscape is characterized by the Paintrock Canyon, which starts at the ranch headquarters and meanders for 8 miles, opening into the Paintrock Basin at foot of Cloud Peak, the highest peak in the Bighorn range. The Canyon itself is shaped by steep limestone slopes that climb thousands of feet high above the trail. Red sandstone cliffs, whose color transforms from deep orange to burgundy red with the changing light, rise above the meadows surrounding the ranch’s headquarters. The ranch is located 1.5 hours from Cody, WY, and 3 hours from Billings, MT where the largest commercial airports are. Shuttles through a third party are bookable to the ranch from Cody. Car rentals are also available from both airports.
