For The Ride
Many a wonderful vacation has been spoiled by wearing uncomfortable
clothing or the wrong kind of shoes. We want you to have a
good time on your trail ride so please take these suggestions
into consideration. Leather boots need to be well broken in,
a pair of tennis shoes or other comfortable shoes should be
brought along to wear in camp. Open toed shoes provide no
protection from cactus and insects. Weather conditions are
unpredictable and we recommend that you bring a water resistant
coat or slicker to tie behind your saddle. Baseball caps are
ok, but cowboy hats are best for shedding rain and provide
protection from the sun, make sure
your cowboy hat has a stamped or choke string on it.
We suggest that you bring a warm sleeping bag with a sheet
. The cabins have heaters in them. We will provide a foam pad and cot. Because the
trail ride is in the spring or fall, we advise you to bring
clothing for warm weather as well as cold weather. The very best is to bring clothing you can layer.
We suggest that you use heavy duty canvas duffle bags or sturdy
luggage that can take abuse.
This is a western outdoor vacation.
It is physically demanding and participants should be in good
physical condition. It is important that participants understand
that we will make every reasonable effort to provide emergency
medical services and evacuation if needed, we are in very remote areas that will take extra time to
provide the needed medical attention.
We feel it is prudent to purchase short term travel,
cancellation and accident insurance.
Policies can be purchases to cover the length
of your vacation and include personal accident coverage and/or
luggage and personal affects.
In addition check with your insurance agent to see
if your home owners policy covers loss or damage to your camera,
