For some it is the dream of living life where the western mountains meet the endless sky and vast spaces are a just a part of the lifestyle.

For you it might be about being part of an American legend, becoming the best cowboy you can be, or you may want to fully explore the horse/human connection. Whatever your inspiration, at Cowboy School you will be schooled in the wisdom and skills of the west--the west of your dreams!

We are extremely pleased, no we are very excited, about our new location for summer of 2011.   As of the end of May 2011 Bob will be teaching Cowboy School at the TA Ranch, which is located just 13 miles south of Buffalo, Wyoming, and it is a wonderful location for us and for our students.  In the 1890s the ranch itself was the location of the infamous Johnson County War, in which the ranchers and their hired guns were attacked by the rustlers. Quite a gun fight ensued. Sounds like a TV Western, doesn't it?  (The bullet holes were preserved during the extensive restoration) The rooms are lovely and comfortable, with each building decorated in the style at the time it was constructed.  The food is also outstanding, and we are pleased to offer our students this new, excellent facility. 

The school will continue to offer one-of-a-kind instruction that is perfect if you want to make riding and roping your job or if you would just enjoy a cowboy vacation while learning more about riding, roping and working cattle on a working cattle ranch that offers the high, Wyoming plains at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains.

In a technology driven society, ranching still requires expert cowboys that ride, rope and handle cattle horseback.
