Rodeo is big in Wyoming. Maybe it’s the Western culture that surrounds it, the history behind it or the no-holds-barred displays of courage and expertise, but rodeo is unlike any other sport and it is also about authentic Old Western spirit, camaraderie among competitors and raw emotion in the arena. Nowhere else can you truly witness the essence of Wyoming quite like this. Rodeo is a way of life and a profession for cowboys and cowgirls, who travel across the West making their living by bronc and bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing. It’s an occupation born in the days of the Wild West, when excellent horsemanship was a necessity on the ranch, as it still is in many places in Wyoming today. Back then, working cowboys would show off their riding and roping talents to one another, sometimes competing with neighboring outfits. Eventually, these get-togethers moved into towns as organized “bucking shows,” which gained popularity in part due to Buffalo Bill Cody’s traveling Wild West Show. 

Wyoming is home to one herd of wild horses which is located in the Pryor Mountains south of Billings along the Montana-Wyoming border. For more than a century, the Pryor Mountains have been home to free-roaming bands of wild horses.  The Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range is unique in both its setting and for the wild horses that inhabit it. Many of the horses have primitive striping on their backs, withers, and legs and are reputed to be descendents of "colonial" Spanish horses.

We are talking about a lifestyle , an experience of La Segunda Vida, or the warm up to heaven.

Lastly for the wildlife lover you will soon fall in love with the "locals", and if you are like most folks around here you will need a digital camera with a big memory to capture the bald eagles and nest right off the property line, the herds of elk, Mama Moose and her twins, the horses out in the pasture, coyotes, foxes, deer, squirrels, chipmunks, humming birds, owls, and the occasional bear seeking refuge from a fire. You will soon realize that you really do live in your own park, yet surrounded by the rival national park system. It is a very special place, and we have no geysers.

Beaver Creek Ranch

Sheridan, Sheridan County, Wyoming


Unspoiled, spectacular, exceptional, private: The Beaver Creek Ranch, just west of Big Horn and Sheridan, WY and perfectly situated in the foothills of the beautiful Big Horn Mountains, is truly unspoiled, spectacular, exceptional and private. The word legacy is perhaps too often used when describing ranches, but in this case, a true legacy ranch will be passed on to the next steward. In an area where true legacy ranches seldom come on the market, this offering represents an opportunity of a lifetime for someone who has their heartstrings pulled by the Big Horn Mountains and her lovely foothills. It’s the consummate Big Horn ranch, complete with unparalleled privacy without being remote and the most uninterrupted and beautiful views of the Big Horn Mountains you will find anywhere. The exquisite homes harmoniously compliment the landscape, which is filled with all wildlife indigenous to the area and an agricultural component of pleasing, productive hay fields. The 1,945± acre ranch comes complete with good water rights for irrigation, excellent barns and out-buildings, ponds for fishing, and plenty of trophy game like elk, mule deer and white-tail deer, not to mention game birds and many other species from a well-protected natural environment. The ranch has been managed with wildlife habitat as a priority while producing cattle and hay. Seldom can you find a feeling of extensive views while also having a feeling of private intimacy with the surroundings, but Beaver Creek Ranch accomplishes both in a unique way. There is no huge overhead sign signifying a monument to self here as you enter, but rather, it’s a humble, nondescript entrance blending humility with quiet sophistication that reflects the true nature and essence of the way people have lived and ranched here for over 100 years along the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains. As you enter the ranch, you notice that it’s both a working ranch and an exceptional wildlife habitat, meticulously cared for. As you approach the owner’s residence, you’ll think you’ve taken a wrong turn as you head further in to the beauty of the foothills. One you reach the mature stand of Ash trees that hides it, you’ll be amazed at the completely hidden and intimately nestled, private 6,000+ sf home that opens up to the pure glory of the foothills and Big Horn Mountains from all the rooms and on out to the patio, lawn and bass pond. You’re only 15 minutes from Sheridan and 10 minutes from Big Horn, but it feels like the rest of the world doesn’t even matter, because you’ve just arrived back home in the best setting you can imagine. The guest home is just a smaller version of the owner’s residence with tremendous views and privacy as well. Two other homes provide a manager’s residence and a caretaker’s residence, plus the barn provides a nice apartment that would comfortably accommodate a groom or someone caring for cattle during calving season. This Wyoming ranch for sale perfectly suits horses, cattle and just as importantly, wildlife. It is a grazing/hunting/recreation ranch, designed to offer premium hunting and fishing while maintaining its health through planned grazing. Whether you want elk or deer hunting, or premium bird hunting and excellent fishing, this ranch has it in one of the most private and beautiful settings you’ll ever experience. This ranch supports a herd of 120± cows and has ample irrigation and water rights. The irrigation system- mostly all gravity-fed sprinklers, is thoughtfully designed to flow with no pumps and it’s completely redundant and manipulated with only valves, which means easy application without worries of pumps failing. Grazing has been managed in harmony with the wildlife for generations and all the past stewardship of the ranch is reflected in its healthy soils and rich habitat. This is a premium ranch in a polo hotbed. The Beaver Creek Ranch would make an ideal location for a polo field since this area is already one of the premier polo attractions during the summer months. The Big Horn area has two polo venues each summer; one at the Flying H Polo Club and the other at the Big Horn Polo Club. Since 1893, polo has had a presence in Big Horn and today it is steadily growing with new players finding the high quality of life in Sheridan and Big Horn to be exceptional. Several patrons have recently purchased their own ranches for polo and to enjoy all that this area of Wyoming has to offer. The Sheridan area is synonymous with high quality of life. We have coined the phrase “cowboy-cosmopolitan”, which we think perfectly described the ambiance and level of sophistication without the attitude. It’s still much as it always has been, casual, real and where handshakes still mean something. People really do make the difference here. The friendliness and unpretentious cowboy culture add to the flavor of the community and make the natural beauty of our landscapes even more inviting. Once you’re here, you’ll learn why those who live here wouldn’t trade it for anything. Speaking of what else Wyoming has to offer; we have the most “tax-friendly” state with our very low taxes. There are no personal or corporate state income taxes here and there are no state capital gains taxes. Additional acreage may be available.

Roadifer Ranch

Sheridan, Sheridan County, Wyoming


The Roadifer Ranch presents a limited opportunity to own a large, unencumbered agricultural property near the coveted area of Big Horn, Wyoming.

The opportunity, though quite rare, to own land in this area still exists today in offerings like the Roadifer Ranch. It is one of the few remaining large acreage properties in this area that is yet to be developed but still has all its development rights; excellent water rights; unbelievable views of the mountains; plus, the location is excellent. Savvy investors will quickly recognize the unlimited potential of this 293± acre property. Agriculturally, it is very productive. It’s abounding with irrigation water and many natural springs and coupled with its rich, productive soils it has ample grazing for livestock or brood mares and growing crops.

Irrigation water from Park Reservoir (65 shares) and Big Horn Reservoir (157 shares; 88.45 A, 69.08 B) is delivered via Colorado Colony Ditch. Park shares are highly valuable as they can be transferred or sold. The Big Horn Reservoir water is valuable, but restricted to adjudication and agricultural use within the Colorado Colony Ditch Co. Under current management, the farm ground is producing about 460 bales, 1,560# of mostly grass hay. With some cultivation and replanting of different crops, the property has the potential to produce close to 1000 tons of hay per year.

With the water, soils and gravel, this property is quite self-contained and offers value many opportunities for a new owner. With its incredible views, natural beauty and the convenience of being located only about 5 miles from downtown Sheridan or 7 miles to the polo fields in Big Horn, this is the perfect property for anyone looking to build a dream home, while securing a solid real estate investment in the Sheridan area. Development potential in this area is real, so from an investment standpoint, an owner should always have that option; however, if securing the land in its current state for perpetuity is the owner’s desire, then a conservation easement might be considered for this property. Roadifer Ranch offers many options and one will quickly discover these and others when on the property and experiencing it for yourself.

Upper French Creek Ranch

Buffalo, Johnson County, Wyoming


Upper French Creek Ranch is located along the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains in the French Creek valley just a short drive northwest of Buffalo, WY. Access is by paved highway to the gate. At approximately 2,124± total acres, 1,157± deeded, and ranging in elevations that climb from 5,000 feet up to 6,780 feet at its highest point on North Ridge, this spectacular ranch offers beautiful and varying views of the Big Horn Mountains, French Creek and the surrounding valley from everywhere on the property. Upper French Creek Ranch is primarily used for livestock grazing and current owners operate it as a ranch. As such, it is capable of running approximately 50-60 pairs; perfect for someone who wants to have a small cattle operation. It could serve as a nice base for a small purebred cattle operation, or a great place to raise and ride horses. The irrigated meadows provide a nice compliment to the native grasslands, providing a balance of forage and flexibility for a grazing program. The ranch has a State of Wyoming grazing lease on 640 acres and also has a 57-AUM BLM lease for livestock grazing. Not overly improved, the ranch has a modest 2-story home that could easily serve as a manager’s residence, which is near the barn, shop, corrals and working facilities. There is also a 5-acre building site still available for a future buyer to build a new home to enjoy the wonderful valley and views. With a Nature Conservancy Easement to protect the natural plants, wildlife, and scenic view sheds, from further development this ranch will remain largely as it is today.* Though currently operated for agriculture use, the recreational amenities of the ranch are not to be overlooked, nor is the chance to unwind, relax and enjoy life far from the stress of urban living. Whether you want to retire, or just a place to escape permanently or periodically, you’ll immediately enjoy the Wyoming way of life here. Significant ecological diversity and plenty of open-space provides natural habitat for pronghorn antelope, mule deer, white tail and seasonal elk; not to mention Hungarian Partridge, some Sharp Tail Grouse and other upland birds and water fowl. French Creek meanders through the cottonwood lined riparian zone for roughly 1.5 miles. Not often do foothill ranches in the greater Buffalo area come on the market that are this close to town, with the ease of access, productivity and recreational amenities like Upper French Creek Ranch.
