Renegade Rides has been taking good riders on great rides since 1997. Our specialty is giving experienced riders the ‘ride of their lives’. These rides are not for your average ‘dude’. If you love to ride, have an adventurous spirit and are not afraid to ride with a loose rein, you will love it here. We don’t pamper our guests. Riders saddle their mounts each morning and are encouraged to help with other chores as needed.
There are seven different rides from mid May to the end July. They each have a different theme, but all include days of accelerated riding in a variety of terrain, from open hilly sagebrush covered badlands, to giant red cliffs and deep limestone canyons. The views are unsurpassed and the wildlife abundant. Expect to see deer, antelope, coyotes, eagles and sage grouse. Riders work with local ranchers, gentling colts, moving cattle, or attending rodeos and endurance rides. The rides are based out of my house. The last ride in July will have 4 nights camping.
“There is no trail crew out here, to groom the trails. These are natural trails made by the local wildlife and livestock- deer, elk, cattle and sheep. Be prepared to lope through knee-deep sagebrush, slow down for the rocks, watch out for badger holes and gallop through grassy meadows. My horses have been born and raised in this rugged country and can negotiate the trails with ease. Riders must be comfortable riding with a loose rein, at a gallop, in a group of other riders. We encourage riders to wear helmets.
The rides are limited to 6 guests. This provides a more personal riding experience. No big groups here. We take pride in properly matching horse and rider. Renegade horses are not your average dude horse. They are sensitive, responsive, athletes who do their job well. Spurs and crops are not needed- leave them at home.”
The stunning terrain is varied and changing from day to day, depending on the direction we ride.
To the west are the hilly, sagebrush covered, badlands. We ride by weird rock formations, watch out for deep cutbanks, and see lots of antelope, as we trot or gallop along. The mountain views are fantastic.
To the east, the Big Horn Mountains rise up to over 13,000 ft!. In between giant red cliffs stand at the foot of the Big Horns. Wild west country at it’s finest and very suitable for horseback riding. Horses here learn to be surefooted and develop great stamina.
