An Authentic 1880's cattle drive.

This is the real deal.

We promise you the trip of a lifetime.

Compared to us, City Slickers is a pony ride!!!!

This is reality. We don't schedule phony stampedes, cloudbursts, blizzards, rodeos, wagon wrecks, or brush fires. They happen all on their own!

Welcome to the Double Rafter. Check us out. You will come to find that we are the real deal. We are a real family-owned and working cattle ranch. To get a feel for what the cattle drives are all about, check out our video. We don't use paid actors. The footage on that video has come from past cattle drives using real people like you.
