Welcome to The Hideout


The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is an all-inclusive, upscale riding, horsemanship and working cattle guest ranch. The Hideout is located in beautiful Shell, Wyoming which is east of Cody and Yellowstone National Park. We are limited to approximately 25 riders weekly. With a backyard of 650,000 acres in an area with tremendous diversity of scenery and altitudes ranging from 4,200 to 13,100 feet, you will seldom see the same trail twice.

The Hideout is focused on horseback riding, horsemanship and working cattle. Our string of 130 horses consists of Quarter Horses, Paints and a growing number of Mustangs. We take pride in offering a very personal, fun and safe riding experience. We do offer other activities to provide a break from the saddle including fly-fishing, trapshooting, archery, scenic 4x4 driving tours, Cody Nite Rodeo (seasonal), hiking, a hot tub and a gorgeous lap pool.

We are a team of passionate and diverse professionals who deeply care about your vacation and well-being. We are committed to the highest standards of culinary experience, quality lodging, attentive staff, and responsive horses. Our European/American owners and staff are multi-cultural and view diversity as an asset. We also welcome a growing number of international riders and travelers each week. Many return year after year because of our unique and caring culture which is also one of our most important assets.


The New Blog and The New ‘Stang’

The Hideout Blog

Well, today is the first Hideout Blog! For those of you who are not familiar, Blog: an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page. So for the Hideouts blog, we figure it is simply a great way to keep in touch with our guests and what is happening on the ranch.

At the same time as the arrival of the first blog, we have the arrival this week of the new Mustang. Ramon Castro (one of The Hideout’s trainers & wranglers) has been excepted to compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover this year. He will have 90 days to train the horse (who is totally wild) to work with riders, compete in cattle work and go through a series of obstacle courses before the final show in June.

The name “mustang” derives from Spanish mesteño, meaning “stray livestock animal”. Today the ‘wild mustangs’ or free-roaming horses are protected under United States law, but have disappeared from several states where there were once established populations. Many of our guests will have enjoyed the familiar site, while travelling to The Hideout from Cody, of seeing the McCullough Peaks Mustangs.
