The emphasis on quality extends to every aspect of this ranch. As well as riding with your own guide there is extensive fly fishing, trap shooting, archery, a full service spa and a host of other activities. There has been a huge investment in facilities and this is mirrored in the care and attention you receive from the staff and guides who focus on ensuring the guest comes first.
It’s a delicate balance but we believe the ranch has succeeded in retaining the relaxed ambiance of Montana whilst attaining the level of luxury and fine dining associated with membership of Relais et Chateaux.
This is a “once in a lifetime” holiday which will never be forgotten.
There are 75 horses at the ranch, primarily quarter horses. The riding style is Western.
There are a range of trails to suit all levels of riders. Within small riding groups you can explore the area on half and full day rides. The pace depends on the terrain and may include loping. Shorter trails will be arranged for less experienced riders and children.
Arena and roping lessons can also be arranged. Lessons are a great opportunity for beginner riders to gain confidence or for intermediate riders to discover new techniques.
The Ranch at Rock Creek is open all year. You can arrive and depart on any day.
