Calendar of Events at the Ranch
Many of our guests we see during the year are returning visitors from previous years. If you are new to Lonesome Spur and ranch life, we would very much like to welcome you in your first true western adventure.
We hope to hear from you soon.
We help with the branding and gathering of cattle - this activity is dependent on requirements and is weather permitting – please be aware we cannot brand or gather in wet weather.
Cody Nite rodeo starts 1 June thru end of August, Our guests get the opportunity to go once a week to see the rodeo and explore the historic town of Cody- founded by the famous Buffalo Bill!
We also have 100,000 acres of various landscapes to ride in, both mountain and high desert trails. The home ranch is approximately 400 acres so we will be trailering guests and horses to some of our riding areas. In addition to everyday ranching activities, we also offer our guests the opportunity of participating in weekly horseback activities team penning, sorting, barrel racing and poles. Lonnie will also be happy to teach you how to rope on our roping dummies.
Every week in the summer months our guests will help gather the roping steers from the pastures, sort and check them.
This is a great month to see more wildlife during our beautiful fall rides, and it can be cooler than our summer months. We will also start to gather cattle from the mountain pastures from Mid-September.
Between June and September
Overnight camp in the Pryor Mountains – weather permitting.
The timing of all rides may vary depending on weather conditions and temperatures, and we may depart either with an early morning start, or later in the evening when temperatures are more amenable. To reiterate, it is the ranch owner’s decision when to make changes or cancel rides, and whether the ground conditions are dangerous for the guests and horses. Other ranch activities will be offered to replace rides where possible.
This month can see us gathering cattle in mountain terrain, as well as some rides in the high desert. The Nile Stock Show, pro rodeo and horse sale is also in October. We will be attending the evening Ranch rodeo and will also go to the rodeo later in the week.
