Typical Ranch Week
The typical week begins with arrival on Sunday afternoon with following Saturday morning departure. Guests begin with a welcome supper followed by a brief orientation and then meet with wranglers to assess riding level experience and get matched with a horse.
Monday guests get paired with their horse and saddles, and learn basic grooming and maintenance for riding orientation. Guests can take an afternoon lesson or go out to check cattle in one of the forward pastures. Guests can enjoy supper with a campfire afterwards, weather permitting. Tuesday through Friday mornings consist of horseback to riding out to one of the pastures on the 10,000 acres and either check cattle or move them to another pasture via a cattle drive. Afternoons offer cowboy work (such as fixing fence) or cowboy school, relaxing and having beverages, go to the hot tub, pool, etc., until supper at 6:30.
Three home cooked meals are served each day and snacks are available as desired. Breakfast meal choices range from eggs, bacon and sausage, and cold and hot cereal, fruit, yogurt; occasionally biscuits and gravy or breakfast burritos are also served.
