We are a small company of cowboys and cowgirls that got its start in 2001. We were motivated by the idea of delivering a higher quality, day time horse activity that was still affordable and held closely to the Western ideals of horse/rider interaction. We are still staffed by the same core of people who began this venture, along with a few new additions. Our staff, though small, excels at giving our guests the kind of personal, Western touch that so many outfits have forgotten. While we are always hoping to add new and exciting features to our list of activities, we are most concerned with maintaining a close, personal interaction with each and every guest that joins us here at the Rusty Spurr.
