Cattle Drive

Cattle drives and riding holidays

A cattle drive is the opportunity to go on a riding holiday with a purpose. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to help the locals move cattle headed for their summer or winter pastures. Work with the wranglers of Montana or the local farmers of Iceland, discover the gaucho culture of Argentina, and become part of the team! You will also most likely have the opportunity to take part in other types of cattle work such as branding or vaccinating the animals. Round-ups and cattle drives still contribute to the local economies and are an important part of the local traditions. Embark on an exciting horseback holiday with Equus Journeys and experience "the real deal".
