Triple Creek Ranch a Montana Hideaway
Another horseback riding holiday that is not to be missed is the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous at Triple Creek Ranch in Darby, Montana. Held annually in May, this all-women western riding adventure is hosted by cowgirl extraordinaire and ranch co-owner Barbara Barrett. An accomplished equestrian, Barrett leads guests through breathtakingly beautiful terrain in Montana’s Bitterroot Mountain Range. An intimate group of adventurous travelers will enjoy fantastic riding opportunities in southwestern Montana, hikes on property or perhaps to hidden hot springs, panning for sapphires, birding and world-class fly-fishing at the Orvis-endorsed lodge. After a long (or short) day in the saddle – you decide your participation level – you’ll return to the luxury of your cozy log cabin and enjoy a soak in the hot tub, or relax in front of the fire, followed with fine wine and gourmet meals prepared by a wonderful chef at the Relais Chateaux lodge.
The Spring Round Up and Cowboy School is offered in April and is open to cowboys and cowgirls. This four day equestrian vacation features horseback riding, roping lessons, cattle round up and sorting, followed by an old-fashioned hoedown Triple Creek style!
