The Longhorn Guest Ranch is nestled in a private setting in the beautiful high-meadows of Idaho’s scenic West Mountains, and is located approximately 1 hour from Boise, and only 5 miles from scenic Highway 55. The ranch is surrounded by thousands of acres of beautiful, pristine Boise Cascade and National Forest property. Wooded slopes line our own private meadow, and Ponderosas shade our riding arena throughout the warmest part of the day. Two private ponds reflect a sea of wildflowers and offer catch-and-release fishing. It’s also not unusual to catch a glimpse of wildlife grazing among the longhorn herd, including Deer, Elk, and Moose.
The aroma and beauty of aspens, pine and sagebrush are reminiscent of the romantic cowboy life. From the porch of one of our cozy cabins, or from the front of our spacious lodge, you will be able to greet the new day and take in all the beauty of this truly magnificent place of natural peace and tranquility.
Learn the basics of horse control such as starting, stopping and saddling your horse.
