The Blacktail Ranch is an 8,000 acre jewel, located at the base of the Continental Divide, where the Rockies meet the prairie. The South Fork of the Dearborn River flows through the center of the ranch, feeding rich meadows and deep, lush aspen groves. Above the riverbed, unspoiled acres of pine and fir roll into broad fields of native grasses and wildflowers. Come and find out what many already know - The Blacktail is hands down the prettiest ranch around.

The Blacktail Ranch was first homesteaded by our grandfathers in the 1880s and our family has lived and worked in this valley ever since. We have also been offering a variety of vacation options since the 1950s. We are not new to the guest business and know how to take care of all your individual needs.

A few of the things our guests enjoy are an exceptionally beautiful mountain ranch, daily unlimited horseback riding, first class accommodations, three healthy wholesome meals a day and of course, great fishing.

Our large string of horses are able to accommodate a wide variety of riding skills. Both riding and roping instructions are available. In the Spring and Fall, join us for moving cattle to and from the high country and in Mid season, help rotate the cattle's pastures. If you like, sign on for a three day, two night Divide Ride, where you can experience spectacular and expansive views from the rim of the Continental Divide.

Fishing opportunity are plentiful at the Blacktail Ranch. The South Fork of Dearborn runs through the Ranch and a short drive away will bring you to the Missouri River, the main Dearborn River and the famous, A River Runs Through It Blackfoot River.

The Blacktail Ranch is rich with archaeological sites including an extensive cave system dating back to the Ice Age, a Sun Wheel, A Medicine Wheel and numerous tipi rings from more recent native visitors. The ranch museum houses artifacts from the cave and from the Ranch's homesteading era. All of these sites can be toured during your stay.

Tag and Sandra Rittel invite you to visit the Blacktail Ranch and share in a true Montana ranch life that is steeped in history and alive with magic. All guests are greeted with warm hospitality and a generosity of spirit that makes the Blacktail Ranch a unique setting - peace and serenity of the wilds with the comforts of a beautiful and caring guest ranch.
