sweetThe Sweet Medicine Ranch & Wild Horse Sanctuary is a 2,000-acre cattle and hay ranch located on a tributary of the West Rosebud River near the community of Fishtail, population 450. One thousand acres have been set aside as a sanctuary for their privately-owned band of Pryor Mountain Mustangs. This herd is one of only a handful of genetically pure Spanish mustang herds dating back to the conquistadores.

Kaity and Rylie Williams and their five children share deep roots in the Stillwater Valley where their great grandparents gazed upon the Beartooth Mountains and homesteaded in the late 1800’s. Kaity’s parents Jim and Sherry Edwards started adopting mustangs and bringing them to this cattle ranch in the 1980s. They love sharing the work and the stories about the care and history of these wild horses. The Williams family offers guests a unique taste of country life.

Remember, just because you are staying on a working ranch does not mean you’ll be expected to work as a hired hand—you can do as much, or as little, as you want. Vacationers seeking a quiet rural ranch stay may enjoy horseback riding, hiking, and fishing during the day and the option for “glamping” with the mustangs by night.
