The Real cowboy experience

Working with cattle and horses

When you stay at Rowse's 1+1 Ranch, you’ll walk back in time, live the real cowboy life, and experience the simple pleasures of our western American heritage. It’s a land where neighbors have lent a helping hand for generations. A place where the front door is always open and fresh coffee’s waiting.

Spring, Summer or Fall…Each season is special at the 1+1 Ranch and filled with plenty of saddle time. Spring brings the excitement of calves and foals being born, working cattle, cattle drives and brandings. Summer brings long pasture rides checking cattle, cattle drives, working cattle, cowboy socials, team roping and team penning. October is fall Round-Up, which involves long cattle drives on horseback, team roping and penning.



Relax with friends

Make new friendships on the Ranch

When the day is over you put up your horse for the night, pull off your dusty boots, take a long, lazy shower and head to the dining room to fill up on Tammy’s delicious down home cooking.

Her kitchen creations lasso many a cowboy back for seconds – even second vacations.

After dinner, you can relax by the camp fire over coffee, a cold beverage, and conversation. It’s a sure bet Jerry or Kyle Rowse will share some great stories with you.
