This workshop can be experienced best on horseback, but being an experienced rider is not necessary as your horse will do the work or you can take part without riding. Black Mountain Ranch is a working cattle ranch with the added benefit of over 70 horses and 15 wranglers available to guide you through the excitement of the rodeo, cattle round up and the day-to-day life of the cowboy which has changed little since early Western pioneer days. Meals are big and often, and camping out overnight in the aspen woods and high meadows is an experience not to b. forgotten. Meandering through the many trails by horseback is a reminder of how rushed we are in our daily lives and why this slow, natural pace is so relaxing.
