The Hell's A-Roarin' Horse Drive is unlike anything you'll ever experience in your lifetime. It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. The horse drive is a celebration of the old west and happens every year in Gardiner, Montana.

Each year on Memorial Day Weekend, hundreds of horses are driven from Gardiner, Montana, through Jardine, and up a mountain to the Hell's A-Roarin' Ranch. The horse drive was started by Warren Johnson, Hell's A-Roarin' outfitters owner, who led the first horse drive in 1982.

The event draws hundreds of spectators every year. Folks are eager to witness cowboys and cowgirls driving hundreds of horses through town. In 2020, the horse drive was canceled due to health concerns regarding COVID-19.

The Hell's A-Roarin' Horse Drive returns Saturday, May 29 in Gardiner. Proceeds from the event will be used to purchase Trac Chairs for first responders and veterans.

Everyone is invited to attend and pictures are encouraged. Details are below.
