2019 Peak Season (Includes Buck Brannaman Clinics & Fall Cattle Round Up)

June 2, 2019 - October 5, 2019

PEAK SEASON at the ranch (including Buck Brannaman Clinics & Fall Cattle Round up)

Along with Buck Brannaman clinic style horsemanship, cattle working and exploring country join us in our season long cattle work and cattle drives! Enjoy riding in and exploring country in 40 square miles of timbered country and meadow land. Those who are looking to cover lots of country will not be disappointed! Move and drive cattle in the timbered mountains surrounding the ranch and learn how to track and find cattle.

McGinnis Meadows Ranch is very conscientious about proper land management and you’ll take a big part in it. There’s a part for all levels of riders to participate in. Ride the drag to push cattle, ride the flanks to keep those boys in line.

The meal plan for Peak Season includes our Deluxe Continental Breakfast Bar, Sandwich fixins, chips, snacks and drinks to make your sack lunch, Family style sit down dinner with salad bar, beer and wine served at 6:00PM, and daily housekeeping service.

We reserve the right to switch cabins based on accommodation needs.

Fall Round Up

Our main agenda at this time is gathering cattle off their summer pastures as well as weighing and shipping cattle. Our Fall Gather runs from early-September through early October. In the brilliance of the fall colors, we’ll cover a lot of country. You’ll learn about tracking cattle, and there will be some waspy ones that don’t want to come in too badly! Gathering over 40 square miles of timbered Big Sky country with views of the Cabinet Mountains, will make this an experience you will remember for a lifetime. You are welcome to ride and participate as much as you wish. Each evening we come home to the heartiest of meals, and 1st class lodging so you’ll experience the best of both worlds!
