Cowboy Experiences

At the Ranch At Wild Rose, we thank God everyday for the incredible life we get to live.  Ranching in the American West is beautiful, rare, and so special.  We believe when God gives something so priceless, it's meant to be shared.  Don't just dream about the west, live it!  


We are excited to finally release the dates for our 2023 Authentic Cowboy Experiences!  Our guests will work alongside our family and cowhands, doing necessary ranch work.  Come experience a few days in the life of a real authentic American West Buckaroo!    

We have several ranchcation options for guests.  At the top of our coveted adventures are our Summer and Fall cattle drives.  On these multi-day trips, guest help us herd the cattle from summer to winter grazing lands.  There is something so peacefully grounding about spending days on the back of a horse and evenings a campfire.  "Life changing" are the words most often used by our past guests.


New to 2023 is our heifer calving and branding experiences.  Never before have guests been invited to enjoy these amazing days with us on the ranch.


We also offer seasonal single-day custom adventures, where guests can help us with our day to day ranch work, experiences things like drifting cattle, moving pastures, etc.  These adventures are perfect for the beginning rider who is apprehensive about spending multiple days in the saddle.


Please inquire below for a quote for your custom ranchcation trip.

Our Fall Cattle Drive is definitely a bucket list item.  This historic cattle drive was started prior to the 1900s and is kept alive each year by our Heaton family as their 850 head of cattle are herded from the summer grazing near Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon, to the winter ranges on the AZ Strip - near the north rim of the Grand Canyon.  The full trip takes 10 days and spans over 110 miles.  Absolutely life-changing!
