Welcome to The Hideout

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive upscale working cattle, riding, fly-fishing and adventure guest ranch in Shell, WY (east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park). In addition to riding, working cattle and fly-fishing, we offer an array of non-riding activities and adventures such as trapshooting, archery, canoeing, hiking, biking, 4x4 tours, etc.

Limited to approximately 25 guests per week from all over the world and with access to 85 horses, a 1:1 staff / guest ratio and the owners and management actively involved with the well-being of our guests, we are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, lodging, staff (we speak 4 languages), horses and personal, almost customized attention. We are very multi-cultural and diverse.

Every year The Hideout books long before the start of the season, mostly because of word of mouth and returning guests. As we do not plan to increase the number of guests per week please book your vacation long ahead of the season.

Riding a Mustang


The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch and AH Horsemanship have an open mind when it comes to horses and horsemanship. Along with great Quarter Horses and Paint Horses, we also have a growing string of Mustangs which our guests can ride during their stay.
Our Mustangs are selected for their disposition and are trained according our AH Horsemanship principles. These Mustangs make fun and very reliable mounts.
Mustangs are often smaller in size than the average Quarter Horse. They are also survivors in the wild which makes them very intuitive and sensitive. Most of the Mustangs are very comfortable to ride because of their confirmation and compact size.

At AH Horsemanship we work closely with the BLM, The Mustang Heritage Foundation, specialized Mustang trainers and documentary filmmakers such as Erich Proell who is renowned for his documentaries on Mustangs and has documented The Hideout mustangs.

Subject to availability, intermediate and advanced riders might be able to ride one of our Mustangs. Each year since 2011, we have been adding new Mustangs to our herd.
