Be a cowboy – or girl – for the weekend. Our Weekender horseback riding trip goes into our Mountain Wilderness Camp, it is a beautiful ride into this camp on a Friday afternoon. Camp consists of canvas outfitter’s tents with cots and foamies, a bathroom tent, and a large kitchen tent.
We supply all meals, starting with supper on Friday night after arriving in camp, and ending with lunch on Sunday. We supply everything for your horseback vacation except for your sleeping bag and personal gear. Your full weekend of riding through the mountains and enjoying the evening campfires will leave you exhilarated, and with a better understanding of the cowboy way of life.
Friday: Meet at 1:00 p.m. We will truck the horses and gear to the trailhead, where we will load the wagon, give a basic horsemanship course, mount our horses and set off on the trail to camp.
Saturday: Breakfast is served at 8:00 a.m. We leave camp at 10 a.m. and head out for one of several destinations that are available. We will ride through rivers, valleys, canyons and passes. Traveling through some incredibly rugged country, you will gain a new respect for your sure-footed mountain horse.
Sunday: Breakfast is at 8:00 a.m. The horses are ready and the wagons are packed by 10:30 a.m., ready to head to the trailhead. The wagons go on ahead, while the riders go on a side trip to have lunch on a high pass or beside a beautiful triple waterfall. Arrival time at the trailhead is between 3 and 4 p.m. (that’s Cowboy Time!).
