In the Ozark Mountains there is a horse and cattle ranch who welcome guests to come ride their 700 acres of beautiful trails to view the country side, birds, and wildlife. Guests can participate in a cattle drive if they’d like.

Or if you’d rather, there is swimming, kayaking, and fishing opportunities.

Ride a Fox Trotter

The horses are Missouri Fox Trotters. Seems appropriate, being in Missouri. It’s said these horses have the smoothest gait. The horses are trained using the Natural horsemanship method. The guests are privileged to learn about the training too.

Accommodations is a big lodge with a beautiful porch that goes all around the lodge. There is also a cabin available for guests.

The rates posted on the website were for 2016. So definitely call ahead and get updated prices.

This was the only dude/guest ranch I could find in Missouri. If any reader knows of others, let me know and I’ll add it in here.

Thank you for stopping by. Please leave a comment or ask a question, I’ll do my best to answer.
