Roping Cattle


Kim Cross of  Southern Living Magazine describes a horseback riding vacation on our Missouri dude ranch.

"Kick Back Like a Cowboy"


Round up cattle, see a horse whisperer use his natural horsemanship, and enjoy the ride at this Missouri Ozarks ranch.


This year treat yourself to a Western Style Vacation!


Experience the Cowboy’s life in the wide open spaces of our beautiful, secluded Scenic River Ranch, adjacent to the vast wilderness of the Mark Twain National Forest!


If you’re driving, we’re hours (if not days) closer than most ranches - enjoy more vacation time with less travel!


If you’re flying, economy fares are available from most major airports to St. Louis and Kansas City - save money! Be sure to check out the new Branson, Missouri air fares.

This Ranch is a haven nestled in the Ozark Hills with just enough comforts to let you enjoy roughing it!


Rope a great vacation at Bucks and Spurs!

Any vacation plan begins with a fantasy, and a dude ranch horseback riding vacation is no exception. It surely follows that the closer you can come to fulfilling your fantasy, the more memorable the vacation will be.  If you would like to bring your own horse, check with the ranch for requirements.


Our 700 acre ranch offers a wonderful mix of cattle, horses and wildlife with 2 miles private frontage on Big Beaver River for fishing, swimming and canoeing.  Private and personal attention tailors each vacation to the guest area of interest. We strive to make guest feel like part of the family and cater to the individual guest needs. Bucks and Spurs is a working cattle and horse ranch that can offer guest ranch vacations with cattle working included.


The broad range of riding activities includes natural horsemanship lessons, cattle drives for experienced riders, team sorting, herding cows to fresh grazing. Horse drives for the brave hearts.
