Enjoy a truly unique experience by taking part in a western tradition. Mount up and ride with the Rusty Spurr's cowhands who will teach you how to help them gather and drive their herd on 10,000 acres of undeveloped, open range. What makes this activity genuinely special is that its very nature allows everyone from beginner to advanced riders to ride to their individual ability levels. A terrific opportunity for groups with mixed riding abilities! The drive involves 3 ½ - 4 hours of riding, with panoramic views of the Continental Divide and the Gore, Williams Fork and Never Summer mountain ranges. Riding terrain varies from open sagebrush plains to aspen and pine-covered hills. A homemade meal will await you upon your return.
