After dinner and some camaraderie, we’ll venture out to see the facilities and finish up the evening chores, like shutting the chickens in and collecting eggs.
TUESDAY –Gather around the breakfast table to discuss the days events. At 8:00 we’ll meet up at the barn to gather the horses. We’ll teach you some basics about the horses and you’ll learn how to prep for saddling. We’ll acquaint you with your horse, and you’ll have time to become comfortable with your new friend. Lunch will be served in the Ranch House, followed by an afternoon ride. The evening will spent learning cowboy lawn games; roping steer heads, throwing horse shoes, and mastering the bucking barrel.
WEDNESDAY – After the morning chores we’ll head out on horseback ready to fix some fence in preparation for the big move. Cameras are encouraged, this can be a great time for wildlife pictures. The afternoon can be spent fishing or floating on the pond, or hiking some of the beautiful canyons. The evening will bring a barbeque cook-out followed by evening campfire and s’mores.
THURSDAY – Today is the big cattle drive. We’ll gather and saddle our horses early and move the steers to a new pasture. Lunch is packed and eaten on the go. After the move, an afternoon nap is usually required before the evening socializing begins.
FRIDAY – We’ll head out again, horseback, shagging the strays that were left behind. After lunch we’ll practice our skills in the arena, team penning, and barrel racing. The last evening is often spent around the campfire, telling stories and cowboy poetry.
