Employment

Explore dude ranch employment opportunities

Each year our 100+ member ranches offer a variety of dude ranch employment opportunities.  They hire many seasonal employees, and some year round employees, for such positions as wranglers, cooks, wait staff, housekeepers, maintenance workers, children's counselors and office workers. Most seasonal employees are hired by the Southern ranches for the months of September through May and by the Northern ranches for the months of May through October. Many northern ranches have last minute openings during the months of May and June. Compensation varies from ranch to ranch and position to position but usually includes salary, room and board, a share of the seasonal tip pool and use of the facilities and horses when off duty. Frequently the ranches have more applicants than positions, especially for positions related to the horses. Jobs on dude ranches typically involve hard work and long hours as well as participation in evening guest activities such as line dances, hayrides and staff talent shows. Good people skills and an ability to live and work well with others are required. The more flexible you are in the type of position you would like, the more likely you are to be successful.

Recommendation for Dude Ranch Employment Opportunities

Non-U.S. Citizens:

Employment opportunities on ranches for non-U.S. citizens are extremely limited and almost non-existent for working with the horses. Occasionally, a ranch will hire a non-U.S. citizen for a wait staff, house keeping or kitchen staff position. Foreign persons seeking employment must be able to speak English well enough to understand guests and the employer. They must also have a work permit for the U.S.A. Please contact the U.S. Embassy for information on work permits. The Dude Ranchers' Association is not able to help in obtaining work permits for those looking for dude ranch employment opportunities.

Student Internships:

U.S. students often contact the association seeking internship positions. The Dude Ranchers' Association has no formal internship program but a number of our member ranchers have been willing to negotiate with students for internship positions as a part of their seasonal employment. Students interested in such positions may utilize the opportunities listed below.

Options for DRA Assistance in Seeking Dude Ranch Employment

To assist the many students and others seeking employment, the Association is offering the following

Services:

1. Upon request, we will send the Dude Ranchers' Association Directory. All 100+ member ranches are listed, along with their contact information, programs and amenities. Interested individuals may contact each ranch themselves.

2. The Dude Rancher's Association also publishes a newsletter that is sent directly to all member ranches. For a US$10 fee, you may place an employment wanted ad in one issue. Many ranchers refer to the ads published in the newsletter when hiring. There are no guarantees, but it is a good, inexpensive way to contact all member ranchers at the same time.

Send us your name, address, phone number, dates of availability, type of position(s) sought and 2-3 sentences describing your experience or qualifications along with the US$10 fee to: The Dude Ranchers' Association Newsletter, P.O. Box 2307, Cody, WY 82414. Payment must be received before the ad will appear.

Wrangler
Location: Mountain Sky Guest Ranch - Montana PO Box 1219 59027

High-end, horsemanship-oriented guest ranch now hiring wranglers for the 2018 season.

 

Trail rides are not the typical boring nose-to-tail walking dude rides. Our guests stay for a week at a time, and come to ride! We lead walk, trot, and lope rides, all with a heavy instruction component.

 

Wranglers must demonstrate experience in customer service and excellent horsemanship skills.

 

Our season lasts April 1-November 1st; ideal candidates will be available for most or all of that time (min mid-May-Oct 6)

 

For an application, please email wranglers@mountainsky.com
