    North American Dude Ranch Association, Wyoming Dude Ranch Association

Welcome to The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch East of Yellowstone National Park and Cody, Wyoming. The Hideout is an upscale riding, horsemanship and working cattle adventure ranch headquartered in the tiny hamlet of Shell,Wyoming (population 83) at the foot of the Shell Canyon and Big Horn National National Forest.

We ranch 300,000 acres and we have access to approximately 650,000 acres with elevations ranging from 4200 feet to 13100 feet in a rarely seen diversity of landscape and scenery.

As a guest ranch we limit our riders to approximately 25 per week to keep it personal, customized and genuine. This is a riding ranch and not a nose to tail ranch. We take great pride in our horses, own most of our horses and welcome all levels of riders from around the world. The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch management, staff and owners are culturally astute and experienced in handling diversity.

Along with great riding, The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch offers a variety of non-riding activities such as fly-fishing and fly-fishing initiation, trapshooting, archery, 4x4 tours, hiking, photography weeks, ranch tours, Cody Nite Rodeo, visits to the local dinosaur dig sites, etc.

Lodging is upscale, very clean, up to date and well maintained. Our food is all prepared from scratch and diverse.

We have been ranching in this area for over 100 years and multiple generations, which assures tradition. At the same time part of our management and owners family are European and well travelled. This combination assures the right mix of tradition and knowledge of the world our guests are living in and the quality and experience they expect to make sure this is a great ranch experience.

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is a western horseback riding paradise for all levels of riders looking for upscale pampering, great horseback riding, a unique and endless variety of trails and cattle work on 300,000 acre, 100-year old Wyoming cattle ranch.

Just as our riding offers a quality, fun and safe riding experience for all levels of riders, our cattle works offers the same experience. We have livestock for our guests to practice on in the lower pastures and arena but at the same time we offer authentic cattle work as part of the real ranch work.

We are NOT a nose to tail ranch! You will experience a rarely seen diversity of opportunities for cattle work and riding opportunities at a real working cattle and riding ranch, luxury style.

Good time to go

Spring - Scenic rides at 4200 feet and moving and checking cattle; Summer - driving cattle to summer grazing from 5500-11,000 feet and exciting mountainous trail rides, Fall - gather cattle from high mountains, ride thru golden aspen groves

Children at the Ranch

Great for children aged 8 and over

The Hideout offers no special children's programs. Instead, we encourage families to spend time together during your ranch stay. It is rare in today's busy world that families have a week to experience quality time together and you have that special opportunity at The Hideout.

We enjoy children 8 years of age and older given they are athletic, can ride, and will ride with their parents. Parents enjoy time with their children and we accommodate families who like to ride and enjoy this experience together. Kids will learn about horses, cattle, ranching, nature, etc. At The Hideout we treat children like young adults.

Most families with children visit during summer season from the second half of June through mid August. We also see families with children during school breaks or the European school vacations. Outside of these times, The Hideout is mostly adult oriented.

Activities

hiking, biking, picnics, outdoor play area, cookouts, supervised swimming

Games

board games, ping pong, pool table

Environmental & Social Practices

Environment

To ensure optimal rangeland health, we practice rotational grazing. In respect of the cattle, we practice low stress stockmanship (Bud Williams Method). We practice and teach low stress natural horsemanship to ensure a healthy and happy herd of over 100 horses. The Hideout is a friend of the streams and fish and works to protect stream banks and fish population through strict management of our creeks. The Hideout uses no disposable containers including plasic water bottles. We provide reusable water bottles for our guests to cut down on plastic and paper useage and waste.

Ranch History

The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch, the way it is operated today, began in 1992 by Paula and David Flitner. Their goal was to offer an upscale working cattle ranch experience on the 100-year old, 4th generation Flitner Ranch in Wyoming founded in 1906.

Today The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch is owned by Paula Flitner's nephew Peter De Cabooter and his wife Marijn. The Hideout crew, together with the guests, help with cattle work on the Flitner Ranch from April through October. Our goal from the start was to offer great riding and horsemanship, exceptional cattle work and other non-riding activities guided by outstanding, authentic and professional staff. You could call The Hideout a boutique hotel on a working cattle ranch.

The Hideout embraces the new trend in the US of healthier food and a greater variety of ingredients. We serve meats, fish, chicken, vegetables, pastas, etc. and all of our meals are made from fresh ingredients. During the week-end our chef visits and sources fresh vegetables from local organic farms. Our owners are European from countries with a great tradition in tasteful healthy food and this background, along with the influence of the chef at The Hideout, is very present. Our chef will try new things as she continues to school herself during the off season. Food at The Hideout is about more than "huge portions of whatever is on your plate as long as it is meat and potatoes". On the contrary! We welcome a growing number of discerning guests from around the world, and the United States who will not come back if the food is not good.

We serve hearty breakfasts cooked to your liking, along with a breakfast selection of breads, fruit, yogurt and cereals on the buffet. If you are out on an all-day ride, you’ll enjoy hearty sandwiches freshly prepared each morning; otherwise, head to the dining room for a truly scrumptious lunch.

In the evening during cocktail hour we serve freshly made appetizers. Alcohol, wine and beer is included at cocktail hour and wine and beer is included with dinner. Weather permitting there is an outdoor BBQ on Friday.

Our chef is able to accommodate the most common dietary restrictions such as vegetarian, gluten-free, allergies, severe dislikes, etc.

After making your reservation we forward an Incoming Guest Questionnaire for our guests to fill out and return prior to your stay with us. Along with riding and health information, this questionnaire addresses dietary requirements.

If you forward your requests in a timely matter our chef can shop for the necessary ingredients and prepare in advance for dietary restrictions. Considering the remote location of our ranch we can not guarantee your diet if you make last minute changes, decide to deviate from your diet or change your diet upon arrival.

We do not cater to special personal diets related to individual work-out programs, weight loss regimens, strictly organic, etc. because of the high priced ingredients and given the size and location of our operation.

Please let us know ahead of time and discuss your dietary requirements when making reservations. We like to set you up for success, which means allowing our chef and kitchen staff to prepare in advance and accommodate all of our guests.

Your Chef, Mary Warren

Chef Mary Warren’s deep appreciation for varied cuisines was developed at a young age growing up with Southern influences from her father, and Latin influenced cuisine from her mother’s family. This passion was fueled by working in a small Italian restaurant at a very young age. Mary put her culinary career on hold to pursue a technical career in the Pharmaceutical industry but after 17 years of a successful career, she could not shake her passion for the kitchen.

Mary left her successful corporate career and moved home to Sarasota Florida where she spent two years at SCTI. She had the privilege of starting out her professional culinary career at The Colony Tennis and Beach Resort under Chef Jamil Pineda who taught her the true basics of fine dining.

Since then she has been fortunate enough to work at the prestigious Ocean Reef Club under the renowned Chef Phillipe Reynaud becoming a private chef for their elite members and clientele. She has cooked on the high seas in the South Pacific and remote lodges in the interior of Alaska. Through her worldwide travels and experiences she has become an accomplished chef in a variety of cuisines.

In 2015 Chef Mary Warren became the Executive Chef at the Hideout Lodge and Guest Ranch where her creativity and experience are an integral part of the Western fine dining dishes that are a trademark of The Hideout.

The Setting

Private Land (20,000-40,000 acres)

Our landscape consists of rolling hills, creeks, red rock that makes you feel like you're in Arizona, deep canyons, green and dry portions, alpine forests, meadows, sagebrush, and lake country. Our wilderness reaches to 13,000 feet. This is a real trail riders paradise and home of The Big Horn 100 Mile Endurance Race.

Public Land (more than 50k acres)

BLM, National Forest & Wilderness Area. We have have grazing leases as well as recreational leases and have access to over 650,000 acres of riding.


Our Riding

Scheduled rides

We try to customize the riding as much as possible to suit the different riders and guests within the limits of what is possible, fun and safe. In terms of scheduled rides, we usually start the riding at approximately the same times of the day and return around approximately the same time. Especially for the half day rides. For the longer rides, cattle work or special rides we might leave earlier and come back later. As we get more and more experienced riders and people who like to come learn to ride or learn more about horses we do customize more and more to make sure all guests are happy with their experience. We are not perfect but strive to come close. Safety is our number one concern. Our staff, management and owners are experienced in matching horses and riders considering the terrain in which we ride. At times they might correct the rider or switch horses based on their experience. We will deal with big egos if they endanger themselves, their horse and the other riders. Our goal is to treat every guest the same. This includes individuals who think they are more special than others. We make sure everybody has a great vacation. During the shoulder seasons when we have less guests we can be even more flexible. If you ride with your own group or family we can customize your ride to meet your needs. We always consider safety, fun and respectful handling of our horses and livestock.

Unscheduled rides

Half day rides are scheduled and we try to leave no later than 8:30 for all day rides. However, there is flexibility as to when you come back and we customize that to each person. Although our weeks are well planned and organized, sometimes there are unique opportunities or events that come up where we are able guests on unscheduled rides. This could be to go do special cattle work for the ranch, explore new trails that we have never ridden or even see something special... During shoulder seasons we can be even more flexible. If you would like to ride with your family or group of friends we can customize rides to your needs within the boundaries of safety, fun and respect for our horses and livestock. The Hideout has a fleet of 7 well maintained heavy duty pick up trucks pulling stock trailers. This offers a rarely seen flexibility to explore new country and travel greater distances for excellent and diverse riding.

Guided rides

Because of the vast and varied terrain in which we ride, all of our rides are guided by our wranglers. However The Hideout offers a seldom seen freedom once we see that guests can handle their horse in a safe way for rider, horse and the rest of the group. Especially during cattle work and advanced rides there is a lot of freedom to ride out and explore country to look for cattle and herd them to the group. We have maximum 5 riders per guide/wrangler/cowboy to keep it personable.

Riding Freedom

Listening to our guests who have been to other guest ranches or our wranglers we offer a lot of freedom and riding opportunities. Guests appreciate the diversity of the terrain and the fact that every year they see different rides. This is a riding ranch and that is why most people come to The Hideout.

Good to know

During our orientation Monday morning, we ask guests who would like to trot or lope. We conduct a loping test in arena. Out on the trail, one wrangler will take the faster group and another wrangler will ride with guests who are comfortable at a walk. Loping takes place in the valley and safe areas in the mountains. We consider our horses as part of our employees and will make sure it is a safe place for rider and horse.

Weight limit for riding

Up to 225 lbs

Riding considerations

no riding experience needed, We recommend a good level of physical fitness

Hours in the saddle

Riding hours can vary depending upon ride and activity chosen. Half days vary from 2 to 2.5 hours - 2/3 days up to 5 hours and Full Days can last as long as 7 or more hours. Full day cattle drives can last into the evenings until the work is completed. Most of our rides are customized on a daily basis considering the desires and wishes of our guests. This is a riding ranch and that is why most our guests come.


Why our riding stands out

  • Our staff are experienced, genuine, friendly and open minded equestrians. We take great care of our horses.
  • This is a riding ranch. Most ranches have horses, not all destinations have a quality riding program adapted to all riding levels.
  • Endless variety of trails and scenery, different levels of cattle work. You will seldom see the same trail twice.

Sample Riding Itinerary

Every evening during cocktail hour our head wrangler or one of the owners visits with you and presents the possibilities of activities for the next day to see what you would like to do the following day. We try to make things as customized as possible with various riding opportunities from traill riding, riding lessons, horsemanship initiation, arena work to the different levels of cattle work we offer. We work to accommodate each guest's needs from the length of ride they'd like, to the type of ride they're interested in. This includes the non-riding activities.

Full Day Cattle Work Schedule

7.30am - Breakfast Need to be ready by 8.15am

If you participate in a full day cattle work it mirrors what cowboys do on these big vast ranches. They each have a truck and trailer and load up their horses in the morning to drive where the cattle work needs to be done and where one can only go on horseback. You will have the possibility to experience the same concept.

By 8.15 AM all horses are loaded up in the trailers and the wranglers picks up the guests in front of the lodge. This is a real working cattle ranch so we go where the livestock is on this 250,000 acre spread. The drive to and from where we park the truck & trailer to unload is always scenic and often challenging. Every truck takes a maximum 5 guests per truck and 6 to 7 horses per trailer.

We unload the horses, bridle, check cinches and ride out to where we need to start the cattle work, rounding up, drive cattle, sort cattle, etc.

During cattle work our guests can stay with the wrangler or follow directions on where to go look for cattle, calves or yearlings. Confident, adventurous riders will split off and start working immediately. Others will stay more close to the wrangler and follow his instructions, riding with him/her. The wrangler keeps an eye on the entire party to make sure they are safe and that all work is being done properly.

Beginners can stay on the trail or with the larger group of cattle/livestock and push them in the direction we are headed, while the other riders search the country and bring smaller groups to the herd.

As the work continues the herd grows and soon it takes all hands to keep the herd moving forward.

The rides are through scenic and very diverse country, making cattle work at The Hideout a breathtaking scenic ride.

A break for lunch is taken at a nice picnic spot around noon.

Once the cattle is finished there is a scenic ride back to the trucks and trailers. If there are two groups they are usually split in a fast group and a slower group. The wrangler with the faster group(trot/lope) will take a longer trail to head back to the trailer.

Arriving at the trailer the riders dismount, unbridle and load up the horses. Driving down to the valley there is usually some good fun in the truck. We arrive at the barn between 4.30 PM and 6 PM.

By 6.30pm everyone meets for Cocktail hour and looks at the pictures of the day which are loaded up the computer.

7pm - Dinner After a full days work/ride all the guests dine together and dinners are hosted by the owners or managers. After dinner there are games, music, campfire, hot tub, horseshoeing, etc. However most of the guests are usually off-to-bed because they are exhausted.

Sometimes we will take a group on "extreme cattle work” which is usually for the better riders and can be as long as 9 to 10 hours depending upon the work that needs to be done. This group does not return unless the job is done and does not really consider being back by cocktail hour or dinner. It is just a day like the hands of the ranch. It's finished when the job is finished. So it can be earlier done than anticipated.

Trail Rides

There are ½ day trail rides, 2/3 day trail rides or full day trail rides and there are trail rides for beginners, intermediate and advanced. The ½ day rides always return to The Hideout for lunch and these rides are in the valley. After lunch the afternoon rides depart at 1.30 PM from the barn.

Half day rides leave at 8.30 AM and are back between 11 AM and 12 PM. The afternoon rides arrive back at the barn around 4.30 PM. Guests can opt for a morning ride, an afternoon ride or a morning and afternoon ride. The 2/3 of a day trail rides are usually back at the barn around 2 to 3 PM. We take lunch in the mountains on the trail.

We ride private property, BLM, National Forest and Wilderness Trails. Diversity of scenery throughout the week ranges from riding in the half desert with sage, riding in red rock and red canyons, riding green canyons with creeks, riding alpine forests, alpine meadows, aspen coves.

Arena & Lower Pastures Cattle Work & Stockmanship

For this we meet at 8.30 at the barn and arena where these activities start, much as the half day rides. For the afternoon activities we meet at 1.30 PM.

Riding Lessons & Authentic Horsemanship Initiation

We also meet at 8.30 AM at the barn and arena (inside or outside) for these activities.

Non-Riding Activities

For the non-riding activities we usually meet around 8.30 AM and 1.30 PM at The Main Lodge.

4x4 tours & Ranch Tours

Usually Peter, one of the owners will pick you up either at The Main Lodge or at a place of your convenience.

Specialized Photo Clinics & Tours

These schedules are set by the organizing groups and companies.

Riding Lessons

We offer riding lessons, getting acquainted with your horse lessons, natural horsemanship and ground work for beginning, intermediate and advanced equestrian. During the summer season we give the initiations and during some week we have visiting clinicians. This is part of the package. During the shoulder season we offer specialized clinics during specific weeks. The more experienced horse people will enjoy these as we are very open minded when it comes to clinicians. We welcome clinicians from around the world as long as they are respectful, non-ego and professional. We also invite guests to participate and learn the basics of colt starting when we're starting a colt.

Focuses on

Our clinics take place during the shoulder seasons and focus on either general or specific points. We work with clinicians for around the world with the requirements they are 1) Respectful, low stress and open minded 2) Low Ego and not about themselves but about the horse and the participants 3) Professional and experienced 4) Friendly, safe, patient and respectful towards our horses, guests and staff. The clinic starts Sunday evening with a presentation on natural horsemanship and the history of horses with open questions and conversation. Our morning focus takes place in the arena and afternoon we apply the principles on the trail. During arena time, the trainers give a demo with horses and then go into break-out sessions with each wrangler taking 3-4 people aside and working independently with them. The clinic covers trail riding, cattle work, team penning, sorting, how to correctly bridle a horse (to be consistent so horses are comfortable), correctly saddling, and approaching and touch a horse. The trainers will zoom in and customize as needed. In the evenings, guest speakers/demonstrators come such as a saddle maker, veterinarian, and anyone related to horses.

Cattle work - pasture gathers

The cattle reside in the mountains throughout the summer; therefore, we trailer to the cattle. We will take up to seven trucks and trailers to the mountains to trail ride and work the cattle. On cattle drives, we take a maximum 5:1 guest to wrangler ration on cattle drives. Cattle work occurs as needed - The cattle work that occurs is because it's actual work that needs to be done; we don't make up the work.

5 star experience - are you ready?

The Hideout is the only place to go IF you want to ride 1st rate horses (no matter your experience) with experienced, friendly, funny, supportive wranglers in breath-taking settings (mountains, hills, wide open spaces) and eat excellent food. Period. The hosts are charming, easy going, lovely folks. And the accommodations are sweet, comfortable, western-style cabins, just the right amount of luxe without being fussy. I've been there 4 times & have already booked the 5th & 6th visits because I know how great it is. I wish I'd discovered this years ago... There are washing machines/dryers available to use. Each cabin has small refrigerators & coffee machines. The gift shop is fabulous - riding shirts, scarves, vests, hats & gift items. Guests are from all over - Europe, US mostly so the vibe is multi-cultural. Nothing but good things to say about The Hideout. It's a gem.
