Pine Butte offers all the fun and adventure of a ranch vacation, but with some special extras. Our crew of naturalist wranglers don’t just find you the right horse, they interpret the natural wonders you see along the trail.

Plus, our use of wind and solar energy, local food and other sustainable practices means you’ll leave a minimal footprint on our magnificent planet.
