Eatons’ Horse Drive

May 26, 2024 — Sheridan

The annual Eaton’s Horse Drive sees cowboys from nearby Eatons’ Ranch run their thundering herd through the heart of Historic Downtown Sheridan in a unique spectacle that thrills thousands of spectators. Stake out a viewing spot and watch this beloved tradition on May 21, 2024. The horses will pass by the Sheridan Visitor Center at approximately 9am, down 5th Street past the Historic Sheridan Inn and out to Eatons’ Ranch.

The oldest dude ranch in the United States, Eaton’s was created by three brothers – Howard, Willis and Alden – in 1879 in North Dakota and moved in 1904 to the current Sheridan location for a more suitable riding terrain for their ever-growing number of guests. The working cattle ranch is family oriented and family focused. Eaton’s allows guests to ride 220+ horses unescorted, and offers fishing, swimming and plenty of children’s recreation on 7,000 acres of beautiful open country with rolling hills, grassy meadows and hidden valleys. The ranch can accommodate up to 125 guests (families, couples or singles) in the 51 cabins, and offers a unique chef’s menu. Group conference facilities are available as well.
