Additional Info: You can pick from a wide range of classes to really customize your cowboy experience. They’ll teach you to ride properly before attempting to work on technical skills or getting out on the obstacle course. Learn to rope, move, and sort cattle, feed the livestock, groom the horses, or ride out into the desert. Learn about different horse breeds, their behavior, and how to work with young or mistreated horses. Stay on the ranch and learn to cook in a dutch oven or play a game of horseshoes. Prior to your stay, you’ll choose from their menu of activities to let them know where your interests lie. Feel free to let them know if there is anything special you would like to learn!
During your stay, your family will live in their bunkhouse and all meals will be provided. Their three-day college is popular for families, though you could stay for just one day or ask for a custom time frame. The cost for the three day Cowboy College is $1,000 for adults and $800 for children ages 5-17. This includes your accommodation and all meals. No riding experience is necessary, but do let them know your experience level when you book.
