Horsethief Basin Ranch – Lewistown, Montana
The Old West Heritage & Grandeur of Montana
A winding lane flanked by miles of lush, green grass. This is the West the way it was, the West of cowboys and cattle drives,beautiful wildflowers and abundant wildlife. Here, people are still riding for the brand and the hills and mountains still hold untamed promises. On this landscape, with its epic sweep and rich history, human impact still feels scant and natural rhythms set the pace. This is vastness as a way of life, the land as a means of changing the way you feel about your place on earth.
Down the road 15 minutes is Lewistown, a town that might have stepped out of 1950's Western set, a place where cowboys still wear chaps and spurs in the saloon. It has an airport for private aviation, and all the groceries and dry goods you need so that you can be self-sufficient and surrounded by the grandeur that remain only in pockets in this country—pockets like Horsethief Basin.
