Wyoming Horse Property For Sale

. . . God Bless Wyoming and Keep it Wild.
--- Helen Metler, a 13-year-old's last entry in her diary. Circa 1925

Thus, because of its smaller population, it has kept its wild, unspoiled beauty, fresh air and wide open spaces far more than most parts of the country. As described in John McPhee’s wonderful book, RISING FROM THE PLAINS, Wyoming is the place where the Great Plains rise up to meet the Rockies and the Continental Divide.

Wyoming Horse Trails and Guest Ranches

The incredible geological formations of places like Yellowstone Park and the Grand Tetons are in the are only part of the beautiful state of Wyoming which includes almost unlimited scenic and diverse horse riding trails. Herds of wild horses used to thrive here and many thousands are protected and still roam freely on federal land. Today, people ride horses into Yellowstone and there are even places to horse camp with your horses. And, of course, there a hundreds of guest horse ranches where you can visit and ride the ranch horses with guided trail rides.

Millions of tourists speed through Wyoming each year on the few large highways headed to Yellowstone and other points of interest. They experience little of the real life of the state which is mostly hidden far from the busy highways and only have contact with gas station attendants and restaurant waitresses. There are some pseudo ranches close by the highways which cater to passing motorists who are novice riders. They stay mostly at a walk with lines of nose to tail riders and see only the outward trappings of ranch life; big hats, jangling spurs, sing-along’s and barbecues.  To experience the "real" Wyoming, you must search for the innermost private and public horse riding places.

To experience the picturesque life of a Wyoming ranch one must dig deeper and get well off the highways. Many genuine working ranches raising horses and cattle and special Guest Ranches still exist in the back country. A few of them welcome guests who want to experience the picturesque life of a Wyoming ranch and do some horseback riding calibrated to their level of ability on well trained, athletic horses in spectacular country.


Many serious horse people love to explore parts of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem near the Continental Divide which is the largest wild area left in the lower 48 states. There is public horse camping right in the Yellowstone greater park area. Here people visit from California, New Mexico, and further north. The best way to experience the full majesty of this country and its wild kingdom is by traveling on horseback with pack animals to set up camps in the heart of the wilderness. The spectacular passes between mountain valleys are between 11,000 and 12,000 ft. The mighty rivers of America have their beginnings here as tiny springs on the mountainside. Each valley has its own distinct character with meadows of lupine in one and craggy cliffs in another. One or two nights the camp will stay in the same spot to allow guests to ride out for the day, hike or fish. This wonderful adventure provides an opportunity to see this glorious, untamed landscape which is unchanged since the early explorers found it.
