Welcome to HorseWorks Wyoming

HorseWorks Wyoming Offers Ranch Internships of various durations to meet your goals.

Our ranch offers basically everything to do with ranch life!  Wrangle horses, feed cows, calves, foals, go for long and short trail rides, and many opportunities to improve your horsemanship both in and out of the arena!   See what former Interns say on our Facebook pages.  Please message us any time if you have questions about activities and availability.

Do you like the idea of riding on a working horse ranch in the American West, of deer walking past your cabin door, of seeing antelope and elk, of experiencing the peacefulness of ranch life and nature?

Riders eighteen years of age and older* of any experience level and background come to HorseWorks for a variety of reasons: to learn about riding and horses in a ranch context, to ride good honest horses in the wide open spaces of Wyoming, to eventually own a horse, to relive a childhood experience on a grandfather’s ranch, in preparation for veterinary school, to fulfill a dream, to get over a fear, to improve horsemanship, to learn about Wyoming, to move to Wyoming, to learn to be a wrangler, to get a job recommendation… In other words, there are as many reasons to be an Intern at HorseWorks as there are riders. Learn more!

Regardless of your initial reasons for coming, get acquainted with the West, the horses, the ranch, the people and the opportunities that horses can open up for you!

Extra Session just added June 18-23, 2017!  

Deposit deadline: 2016 prices valid for 2017 sessions through Dec 31, 2016 ONLY!  See Internships for more information.  

See Contact Us to speak with former Interns in the USA and around the world who will happily answer your questions based on their first-hand experience.

"Thank you Hank for making me a more confident rider not only on a horse but on the ground, thank you for trusting me, being patient with me, listening to me sing and comforting my nerves, I've learnt so much these past 3 weeks not only about horses and the western way of riding and natural horsemanship but also about myself! I came here 3 weeks ago an inexperienced rider and novice to all things horses but three weeks later I've overcome my fears, I've pushed and challenged myself, fallen off a horse and got back on, galloped across a western plain, learned to better understand horses and how they think and most of all build a relationship with an animal that is built on a mutual trust to keep each other safe! Thank you to everyone I met at Horseworks and the friends I've now made!! I have made myself so proud at what I've accomplished these 3 weeks at Horseworks and grateful for the people I've met who made these past 3 weeks so amazing!! Im going to miss this way of life and the friends I've made here so much!" -- Cheyenne, Aug 2016 ...

Meet our horses: Poncho is a gentle giant. He will happily look after the most inexperienced rider and bring them home happy and safe. For more experienced riders, especially after a winter rest, Poncho will switch gears and provide an energetic and delightful ride. In the words of Nate Brown, "You've just got to spur him a little." Six years ago Nate rode Poncho on his several months long border to border ride. ...

Ernest Nathan Brown Obituary Ernest Nathan (Nate) Brown Jr., born May 11, 1921 to Ernest Nathan (Ernie) Brown Sr. and Eunice Williams Brown, passed away peacefully in his home off Coalmine Draw Rd in Grass Creek, WY on April 24, 2016 in the company of his wife and children. Born in Lander, WY (Nate’s grandfather surveyed the town), Nate grew up in Crowheart working on his parents’ ranch and running wild horses on Crowheart Butte in his youth. Horses were his best friends from the time he first sat on a horse in the arms of the local schoolteacher when he was three days old until the day he passed. In 1941, Nate’s family moved to the ranch in Grass Creek, WY where they ran a cattle and horse operation until 1989, when Nate sold out and retired for the first time. In 2003, Nate and his wife, MaeCile, repurchased the ranch and transferred their horsemanship program, HorseWorks Wyoming, to Grass Creek. During his decades ranching, Nate was also Horse Program Coordinator for the Girl Scout National Center West, hunting guide in Venus Basin above Meeteetse, wrangler and guide at the High Island guest ranch, farrier and horse trainer for everyone in the country and mentor to many for whom he was the pa or grandpa they never had. Nate rode miles to attend dances, call dances and dance with every girl there. He knew how to flatter the girls and it brought joy to the whole room. He inspired people and horses by his kind, gentle, patient ways. Besides being a great cowboy, he touched the hearts of people from all over the world who rode with him on the ranch, or whom he met as he traveled in Mexico, Spain, China and Mongolia. One of his dreams fulfilled was riding from New Mexico to Canada in 2009, at 88 years old, the oldest participant to accomplish this. This same year, he was named Cowboy of the Year. Watching him ride and conserve his horse on long cattle drives was a lesson. His stories about past horses and older times always had something one could use in them. He was older than his years, which is saying something, but he was raised like an old timer and knew the things they knew. Through the hands and hearts of all of us who were mentored by him, Nate will continue to make the world a better place for horse after horse after horse through the many years to come. Nate was preceded in death by his parents, his daughter Karen Sue Brown, and sister Linda Mae Brown, and is survived by Anna MaeCile Eastin Brown, whom he married in 1996, son Ronald Eugene (Carla) Brown, daughter Shirley Brown (Bill) Spuhl, grandchildren Ronda (Rocky) McLean, Darcy (Dan) Morris, James Peterson and Holly (Opie) Love, great grandchildren Kara McLean (Pete) Wipf, Curtis (Casey) McLean, Shane (Luda) Love, and Heather Love and great, great grandson Dillion McLean. Nate is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
