Variety, variety and more variety.
Our trail riding is some of the best in the country. Why? Because from one end of our property to the other, we have desert landscape with sage and limited water to lush green grass on the other side. And, our trail up into the National Forest from the property covers both ends of that spectrum.
Then once you're on top, you get sweeping views of the Zirkel Mountains, aspen and pine forests, open meadows and a mountain lake on our all-day ride. What more could you ask for?
Well, I figured you actually could ask for more. So, we offer several additional things to enhance your horseback riding experience. One, we teach trotting and loping/cantering on the trail. Two, we don't make you ride nose-to-tail all the time. Three, we have the ability to trailer our horses a couple of miles up the road (giving you the cowboy trailering experience). And last, for those days that you'd rather not ascend as far and stay closer to the ranch, we'll have arena instruction on trotting, loping, basic horse cues and training techniques as well as cattle work where you get to divide up into teams and sort cows giving you a goal to reach while you work with your horse.
With all of these options within our horseback riding program, we do feel that you'll stay happy and entertained on your horse for the entire week. Be sure and check out our horseback riding page as part of the Dude Ranch Experience. CLICK HERE.
