SAMPLE WEEKLY RANCH ITINERARY
(Subject to change)
Pick up at the airport, or your hotel, quick trip to the Big R western outfitters for anyone who needs boots etc.
We also stop at Walmarts for you to stock up on drinks and snacks for your room.
After arriving at ranch there will be an orientation meeting, and guests will be required to sign riding insurance liability forms. We will then look at horse safety. Saddles will be fitted and allocated for each of our guests.
Supper will be served at 6:00pm at the Local Bar & Grill, supper on us, drinks on you!
After breakfast we will select a suitable horse for our guests and we will ride in the arena and
around the ranch. Back for lunch before we set off for shopping and sightseeing in Cody. We'll then take in the famous Cody Nite Rodeo which
runs from the 1st of June through to the 31st of August. Departure is from the ranch mid-afternoon and we return after the rodeo around
11:30pm. As an off-ranch activity we will make supper reservations at the Historic Buffalo Bill Irma Hotel. Supper and rodeo tickets are at guests own expense.
We will take a ride to Cottonwood, a high desert
area, for a full days ride to see the Indian
Pictographs and the famous Weatherman draw.
We'll picnic in some of the most dramatic scenery in the American West.
Supper will be back at the ranch.
After breakfast we'll saddle our horses and trailer
them up to the Pryor Mountains, where you will ride up to your overnight camp. We sleep in
tented accommodation, or sleep out under the
stars if you prefer. We supply guests with sleeping bags, and sleeping pads. There is a bathroom with hot shower available for our use. Supper is served round the campfire.
After a camp breakfast we head out for another
ride on the range, checking the cattle. On our return journey we call in to Chief Plenty Coups museum, a small but must see museum.
We arrive back at the home ranch late in the afternoon. Supper at the ranch.
After breakfast we saddle up and have an all day ride. After an early supper we head off to the Bear Creek Saloon Pig Races. You can have fun betting on the pigs, you might even win! Starts at 7:00 pm.
Sadly it's time to head home. After your last ranch breakfast, guests will need to be ready to leave for the airport by 9.30am. If you have your own transport please vacate by 11am.
The timing of all rides may vary depending on
weather conditions and temperatures. If the
forecast is for a really hot day we may depart very early, or later in the evening, when the temperatures are cooler for the safety of our guests and our horses.
We also need to make our guests aware that it is
the ranch owners decision when to make
changes to a ride and whether ground conditions are dangerous for the guests and horses. Rides may be cancelled where necessary. However we have the opportunity to ride in an indoor arena if this happens.
During the Spring and Fall events maybe changed around because of branding and gathering cattle.
