Western Horsemanship Weekends

January 28 & 29, 2011

Real cowboys and cowgirls ride their horses across streams, up steep slopes, into shaded draws and through all kinds of weather to rescue the wayward maverick. To them, it’s all in a day’s work. Kristen Snavely will teach you what it takes to do that work. You’ll learn to trust and understand your horse and have your horse trust you back. Whether you are a beginner or hardened top trail hand, you’ll feel the edgy thrill that drives cowpokes to drive cattle. All riding levels are welcomed in, but only real cowboys and cowgirls will check out from Triple Creek Ranch after their Western Horsemanship Weekend.
