Check-in with Bex at 4PM or after. Get your bags unpacked, settle in and get ready for a scrumptious meal at 6:30PM inside our saloon. We'll have a brief orientation around 7:30PM to get you ready for the week. Then, either settle in to a cozy bed or join us for a western movie and popcorn in the saloon.
Wake up with a cup of Steamboat Coffee Roasters coffee and a delicious breakfast in the saloon. Our horseback riding orientation (if you plan on riding at anytime during the week) will begin around 9AM and then head to the barn to meet your horse for the week and take a short horseback ride. Lunch is at 12:30PM. In the afternoon, you can choose from a mosey, an introductory trotting and loping ride on the trail or a trotting lesson in the arena. Or, feel free to enjoy the ranch or local trails with a hike, mountain bike ride or soak in the hot tub. Dinner is at 6:30PM, and we'll have some good, western entertainment to give your legs a rest from horseback riding.
Hot breakfast throughout the week is at 8AM, and we'll also have fruit and cereal available. Tuesday morning we offer a horsemanship clinic (you'll be with your horse) in the arena or take a morning horseback ride. Lunch is at 12:30PM again in the saloon or outside on the deck if weather permits. Take an afternoon horseback ride, hike, enjoy the mountain air, or hang out with the cowboys and cowgirls at the barn for some steer roping practice on the ground to hone your ranching skills.
Steamboat and Adventure Day-Stay Tuned for more details!
Rather stay on the ranch? Daily activities (morning and afternoon horseback riding and meals) will continue like the rest of the week. Enjoy an evening hayride to the teepees for dinner and a competitive game of horseshoes!
Breakfast is served in the saloon at 8AM, and then head down to the arena for an introduction to moving/sorting cattle. Then, you get to split into teams with our wranglers to get a good taste of sorting cows. Head back to the saloon or deck for another great lunch, and then try your hand at a bow and arrow. Rather get back on the trail? We'll still offer horseback rides for those interested. Dinner is a beautiful candlelight dinner in the saloon for adult guests and kids enjoy a cookout and smores with some of the wranglers and staff.
Start off your day with an amazing breakfast in the saloon, and then we'll pack a lunch for you for the all-day ride to Pearl Lake. Have lunch at the lake and then when you get back home, take it easy at the ranch and enjoy the rest of your day before a cookout dinner and fun bonfire to wrap up the week.
After breakfast, head to the arena for our ranch rodeo/gymkhana. We'll have your horse ready for you to show off the riding skills you learned over the week. You'll get to do the barrels, poles, watch a pony express exhibition from the wranglers and one last cattle sorting competition among your friends. Check-out is after the rodeo around 11AM. We'll be sad to see you leave--happy trails!
