Join us for one of our regular events in the Flint Hills of Kansas. We have 7,000 acres of the beautiful tallgrass prairie to enjoy on horseback or on foot. Keep reading to learn more about some of our most popular events:
Sunset Trail Rides
Moonlight Trail Rides
If one of these events or dates doesn’t quite work for you, give us a call and we will see what we can do … especially if you have a group of 4 or more.
We are also partnering with Prairie Earth Tours and Pioneer Bluffs to provide our guests an option for learning more about the Flint Hills outside the Flying W Ranch. See more detail toward the bottom of this page.
Cattle Drives start in the morning and are typically 3 - 4 hours long through pastures and along country roads. The drive length and activities included will vary from drive to drive depending on what the herd needs at the time. We will be driving between 50 and 150 head of Longhorn Cattle through some of the most scenic areas of the Flint Hills.
The price includes lodging, campfire and s'mores the night before, breakfast, horse, tack, guided cattle drive, and lunch.
Cattle Drive Price:
Adults: $325/person + applicable tax
Youth (5-17): $280/person + applicable tax
Drives take place rain or shine.
Sunset Trail Rides
Unlike traditional nose to tail trail rides, our horseback riding is done on the backs of retired ranch horses through the wide open tallgrass prairie of the Kansas Flint Hills. Add a beautiful sunset to your ride and you have an experience not to miss.
We have put together a comprehensive package that includes supper, a memorable 2 hour ride, campfire with s'mores, and accommodation the night after the ride.
Sunset Trail Ride Price:
Adults: $215/person + applicable tax

Moonlight Trail Rides
Our moonlight horseback rides have been some of our most popular events over the years. Riding horseback through the tallgrass prairie while watching the moon rise is a special experience.
The package includes supper, entertainment, and an overnight stay. Don't miss the opportunity to join us for this unique Flint Hills experience.
Moonlight Ride Price:
Adults: $275/person + applicable tax
Youth (5-17): $230/person + applicable tax
Venture beyond the trail and experience Kansas horseback riding as it was intended – no head-to-tail riding here. The ranch’s numerous saddle horses are well trained and provide a perfect vantage point to experience the beauty and diversity of the tallgrass prairie.
A trail ride at the Flying W Ranch includes a horse and tac, a guide, and 2 hours riding through breathtaking hills and valleys, tree lined creeks and grass covered vistas. We can accommodate people older than 5 years of age and at any level of riding experience – expert to first-time riders.
Price: $120/rider + applicable tax
