Saddle up! Paintbrush Adventures and the famous Barron Ranch offer a picture perfect setting, great hosts, authentic hands on cowboy life, horseback riding in Montana, and Montana fishing on a 5th generation working horse, sheep and cattle ranch. It is high energy, fast paced, and very informal year round unlike any dude ranch. Don't look for set schedules and planned activities.
