Horse riding holiday cattle drive in Wyoming – courtesy of Globetrotting
If you’re up for an adventure and feel that you’ve completely missed your calling as a cowboy or cowgirl, then you need to sign up for the Big Horn Cattle Drive. There is nothing staged about this cattle drive, run by the Kerns family, who have been grazing cattle in Big Horn National Park for generations.
Every year from June through to September they move their herd of cattle (up to 648 cows & calves) from one pasture to the next. It’s remote, staggeringly beautiful, rugged and not for the faint-hearted. As we say, it’s legitimate so it’s long hours in the saddle, a bush toilet, no showers, sleeping in tipis and unpredictable weather. BUT if you’re up for a once-in-a-lifetime, authentic, riding adventure, then THIS is the ride you’ll remember on your death bed!
