Cattle Drive Vacations in Montana

Hello, and welcome to the Dryhead Ranch’s new website. We are a working cattle and guest ranch. If you’re looking for the genuine artifact, then you, my friend, have found it. Be it cattle drives, horse drives, or the always-popular ranch week, we have the working ranch vacation that is right for you. With around 32,000 acres and more than 900 cows, 800 of which are mother cows with calves, you won’t hurt for things to do. We also raise and sell American Quarter Horses, and have more than 120 head on the ranch all season long. Everything we do has a purpose, and we love sharing what we do with those who come and visit us. Montana is beautiful country, and we’d love to have you come and ride it with us at our working guest ranch. All of us here at the Dryhead would like to thank you for your interest in our ranch and invite you to spend some time on our site getting to familiarize yourself with the vacation that just might change your life.

Don’t miss the thrill of a cattle drive or a horse drive!  Week long guest ranch vacations include: home cooked meals, a private cabin with bathroom, trained cow horses, riding instructions, beautiful Pryor Mountain scenery and cattle work on 33,000 acres in Montana’s breathtaking country.

Ranching is in our blood. Our Ranch’s beginning reaches back to 1898 when the Phelps family built their first homestead. Many years of homesteading and several families later Joe and Iris purchased the Dryhead Ranch in 1989. Joe had played and worked on the Dryhead Ranch from the time he was twelve and fulfilled a childhood dream when he was able to purchase it. Four generations later we are still carrying on the cowboy traditions. Learn about the rich history, accommodations and dining, and location of our authentic Montana guest ranch.

Dryhead Ranch has been raising registered American Quarter Horses for over 40 years. We gather our mares only a few times a year, and we’re proud to say that our foals hit the ground in big, rough country, without human intervention. Check out the for sale page for our latest colts and fillies available to the public.

Come experience one of our most popular ranch weeks.  Ranch weeks offer a mix of cow work, horse work and riding all different terrain and seeing a variety of scenery on the ranch during each season. Riding different horses during your stay and becoming partners with your horse as you work cows is a challenge you will remember forever. Branding calves in the spring, sorting cows out of the herd, weaning colts in the fall, are all part of the cowboy experience during ranch weeks.

Enjoy the panoramic views as you ride.
