Montana Wagon Team Driving

At Paws Up, you will journey into America’s adventurous past and have time to reflect on how idyllic life might have been before railroads, cars, highways and airplanes accelerated the pace of life. What was it like before we merely climbed into a train, jumped into a car or hopped onto an airplane? What was it like to be satisfied when a full day’s journey was only 15 miles?

On a Montana dude ranch vacation, you can experience the original form of wheeled travel by learning to drive a wagon pulled by a team of horses. While you will not have to contend with the adversity that our pioneer ancestors faced, you will come to understand the skill and stamina needed to drive a team of horses under harnesses.

The perfect horses for your first Montana teamster experience are Pete and Repete, our full-brother Norwegian Fjords. With them at your command, you will redefine your definition of “driving,” along with learning what Hee-Haw really means.
