Who we are
For those of you who are looking for an authentic old fashion ranch experience in scenic and remote open range country “astride a horse”, the Tillett family invites you to take a step back in time for some good, honest, western hospitality and the experience of a life time you’ll never forget! At the TX we live, ride and work out of authentic cow camps. We want you to feel like part of the family and one of the cowboys!
The TX Guest Ranch originated in 1976 ~ long before the film City Slickers ever hit the big screen!
What we do
Guests have the opportunity to experience “hands on” the life of a real working cowboy or cowgirl and help out with everything from roundups and cattle drives to chasing down strays! You’ll have the opportunity to ride along side some honest-to-goodness cowboys and you’ll be welcome to try as much or as little as desired. We offer excellent riding opportunities with a wide variety of distance to travel for every riding level! Our cattle drives, horse drives and the various seasonal working cattle ranch activities are a genuine and necessary part of each day! Respectfully we operate the ranch in the same manner our great grand parents did because we value their traditional ways.
What makes the TX unique?
It stocks around 1,200 head of mother cows not including calves with in miles of open range boundaries. This means lots of cattle in a lot of big country! Our ranch riding gives you a purpose which helps every level of rider. Each day you’ll feel much more confidence in your horsemanship skills. Don’t just visit the West ~ Live it!
Where we are located
We’re not in Texas! The TX Ranch straddles the Montana/Wyoming border. Its privately owned range begins on either side of the Pryor Mountain, stretching for miles on down to the Big Horn Canyon and its breathtaking overlook! The ranch borders the historical “Will James Ranch” and the “Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range” for which “Lloyd Tillett” helped establish the herd. On the map, we’re located between Billings, Montana and Lovell, Wyoming.
