The TX is THE ranch experience, and I recommend it to all who wish to live and work as a cowboy.

My husband , son and brother in law went to the Tx Ranch in August 2009 and what a fantastic holiday they had. It is now the end of September and they still keep going on and on about how brilliant the whole experience was. They previously had only minimal riding knowledge but after a few days there is no...

I went in Oct. 2004 and had the BEST vacation ever. The freedom you're allowed on the ranch is amazing. No nose to tail riding here. You can walk, trot or gallop at full speed if you desire, with no ranch staff a feet away. This is not a dude ranch folks - you sleep in canvas tents, use the...

I have had the opportunity to go to other working ranches and have to say that I wouldn't trade this one for the world. My boys and I plan on going every year, if at all possible. From the minute we arrived, we were treated as part of the family. How does one put into words this type of vacation....

I had always wanted to do a cattle drive, I spent months poring over the internet and eventually, I do not know why I settled on TX ranch. I wanted to get as close to the real thing a possible, no sauna baths or gourmet meals for me, I wanted to sleep onthe ground if I could! Anyway serendipity, I...

We went on the last cattle-drive week and it was full-on....and leave the mobile and laptop behind! This is for the sort of person who relishes the prospect of centering the week around what needs doing... For us, the first few days were spent rounding up and cutting out the pairs on proper ranch horses, then the drive for 3...

TX is more than a place, it's an experience of body and soul. The people you meet the things you do, the places you see - each has it's own unique and rare beauty. I know I sound like a bit of a sap but it's true. I have been to TX 4 times and each time I have met...

My family has been visiting TX Ranch since my father rode his Harley there to celebrate is 40th birthday in 1980. He fell in love with the scenery, the life style and most importantly, the Tillet family. When he returned home, he tried to explain to us what he had seen and the beauty of the land, wildlife and people...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you are looking for an authentic experience that is what the TX is all about! We ride, work and manage our livestock in old fashion traditional ways. The ranch property and cattle spread for miles across scenic open range country. This means excellent ranch riding, seasonal cattle drives and a wide variety of seasonal working cattle activities. We ride for cattle and once a herd is gathered we start working the herd by roping calves to brand, castrate, doctor or what ever is necessary during the season. This involves a break from the saddle with the doctoring of calves, throwing calves and fun team work! We welcome guest participation, we'll be happy to help show you how it's done! Please keep in mind our ranch activities are not compulsory. If you wish to take time to laze around camp or take a ride on your own your welcome to do so. We also take our suburban out to meet the herd with lunch and supplies please feel free to go with our driver if you don't want to miss out on the cattle activities. During the evening we enjoy relaxing under a mired of stars around a warm open camp fire reminiscing the day with a favorite beverage, stories, tunes or guitar. We also enjoy a good roping match, cards, cribbage or what ever it may be. The TX has over 75 saddle horses to choose from.They are used for all our necessary ranch riding, cattle drives and cattle work. My husband and daughter Hip and Desiree know the horses inside and out. We can provide a good horse for every riding level. They are gentle natured, sure footed, they know how to pick a path with ease and they'll take good care of their riders. The attached photo was taken wrangling saddle horses to the camp corrals.Our cow camps are a great experience too! They are located at original home stead sites. We will return to camp everyday. Everything is set up and provided except your personal gear. Our camp has a base log cabin. This is where excellent ranch style home cooked meals are prepared and served. we want you to feel like part of the family and one of the cowboys. Each camp has simple out buildings such as out houses /toilet and showering facility. A wash table with basins and fresh water for daily washing and fresh water is readily available in the cabin with hot and cold drink mixes, etc.We provide free Billings, MT transportation to and from the TX Ranch. Guest capacity is 18 guests per week. Please feel free to contact us with your questions.Loretta TX Ranch ... more   less
