DESCRIPTION: Treat your family to a true dude ranch experience
at Nine Quarter Circle Ranch, which dates back to the 1800s but offers today’s modern conveniences. The Ranch breeds,
raises, and trains its own Appaloosa strain based on the Quarter Horse breed. Every guest has one horse during the entire
visit, and can saddle up for daily rides, overnight pack trips or extended pack trips to the spectacular
Taylor Hilgard Wilderness Area and the National Forest surrounding the ranch. Western riding instruction is offered every
Monday, with general assistance from knowledgeable staff during the week. While adults are busy photographing, hiking, fishing
and exploring this magnificent country, the Kiddie Wrangler entertains the 6-9 year olds, teaching them to ride and leading
the Rough Riders on their own daily trail rides. The Babysitter looks after children
under six on the playground or at the barn with a short lead ride around the pasture. The weekly picnic and marshmallow roast
is a hit with kids of all ages. Other children's activities include
volleyball and softball games and a Gym Khana (games on horseback) every Saturday at the corral. Guests can also kick up those
heels at the Saturday night square dance.
ATTENTION QUILTERS: The 14th Annual Montana Cowgirl Quilt Retreat will be held at the Nine Quarter Circle
Ranch, August 24-31, 2008 and August 31-September 7, 2008. The retreat features international quilt teachers Georgia Bonesteel
