V6 Navigation


Join the fun on an Authentic Cattle Drives on the V6 Ranch. Plan on a great adventure, from riding one of the ranch horses selected according to your riding ability, to beautiful scenery, delicious ranch style food, and plenty of cattle work.

The V6 Ranch Traditional Cattle Drives provide a chance to see a unique part of the untouched Central California landscape. We offer four cattle drives a year. Three in the spring and one in the fall. The Cattle Drives allow guests to help us drive our cattle to different locations on the ranch as a part of our rotational grazing program. In the spring the wildflowers abound and along with green grass give a feeling of newness to the landscape. It is a chance to connect with this landscape while riding a V6 Ranch raised and trained horse that is coordinated with your riding ability.

We camp out at our Mustang Camp way at the top of the V6 Ranch. You can either bring a tent or camp out under the stars. It is such a vast sky at the camp. There are no lights and it makes for great star gazing. Food is cooked by Lilly Varian Massey and her crew. Meals will be served from Friday dinner to Monday lunch and are absolutely delicious!

Horse Facilities:
The horses will camp out with us at the Mustang Camp. If you are bringing your own horse there are plenty of stalls available for them.

Fee Includes:
All Food from Thursday Dinner to Sunday Lunch, Great Ranch Horse, Unlimited Riding, Campfire Entertainment, Experienced Wranglers, Wonderful Conversation.

We ask our guests to dress in layers as it is cool in the morning and again at night. Typically the days are filled with sunshine and are just the perfect temperature. We do ask for you to wear smooth soled shoes with a heel for riding and a hat or helmet.
