paddlockFeatured in the Western Horseman Magazine as “One of four riding adventures of a lifetime!” The scope and scale of this working cattle ranch will refresh and rejuvenate your senses. The expanse of land and sky not only give you beauty, they give you perspective. With the Big Horn Mountains to the west and the high grassy plains to the east the ranch is divided into units which are spread from Hardin, Montana to Sheridan, Wyoming. There is seemingly no end to the open range with cattle grazing on native grassland.

The folks at the Padlock Ranch have been in the ranching business since 1943 when the Scott family put down roots along the Tongue River near the Montana-Wyoming border. The operation has expanded over the years and currently runs over 11,000 reputation beef cattle in an area that encompasses 450,000 acres. The ranch also supports a fine string of horses that know the ropes.

Most guests come here to ride. Those who choose rugged days in the saddle are rewarded with authentic experiences including roundups, cattle drives, brandings, and riding herd with the cowboys—not to mention incredible views and comfort at day’s end. Those who opt for scenic trail riding and wildlife viewing will not be disappointed. Rolling prairie, alpine meadows, Indian reservation, and high mountain forests provide incredible riding diversity.
