For over a quarter of a century the Culbertson Saddle Club has sponsored the Labor Day Trail Ride and Wagon Train. For the real feel of the "Old West" folks bring their covered wagons or bring saddle horses to ride through Montana foothills imagining the working cowboy's way of life 100 years ago. The cost of the weekend includes great food, entertainment, and hay for the horses. The wagon train brings people from Montana, North & South Dakota, Idaho, California, West Virginia, Texas, Kentucky, Minnesota, and Alberta, Canada. This year there were 21 wagons and 400 outriders, with some years up to 30 wagons .
