A picnic lunch is carried on “Scooter” the ranch packhorse, who has a personality all his own that you are going to enjoy!

Itinerary/What to Expect:
Day of Arrival
Please arrive between 2:30 and 3 pm. Spend a little time getting acquainted with the hosts, sign the Liability Waiver, make your final payment, and check into your room. Next, you'll go down to the horse corral and “meet” the horse you will be riding and get a little bit more acquainted with him/her as you go for a scenic 2-hour trail ride. Afterward, a delicious home-made dinner will be served and the rest of the evening is free to do whatever you like.
Day 2 - Day Ride Out to See the Kiger Mustang Horses
Ranch-style Breakfast. (If you want to you can help saddle your horse before breakfast or have one of the wranglers do it.)
After breakfast, everyone will load up into the Ranch Trucks and we will drive over to the Kiger Mustang Herd Management Area (about 30 minutes) and begin riding.
When the Mustangs are spotted, we will spend some time viewing them and eating our picnic lunch. Total time in the saddle will be about 4-5 hours, but we will stop at intervals to let you get off and stretch your legs. Then we will ride back to the trucks and return to the Guest Ranch. Another delicious dinner will be served around 6 pm and you can enjoy another beautiful evening relaxing at the Guest Ranch.
Day of Departure
Enjoy a ranch-style breakfast, pack up and say “Goodbye” to some new friends.
Things to Bring:
Suitable clothing, a hat with a brim to protect you from sun and rain, a camera and/or phone to take pictures, a reusable water bottle, and a pair of good binoculars.
Other Important Things to Know:
If possible, please wear darker, muted colors, rather than really bright neon colors. We want to BLEND in with the countryside as much as possible as we “scout out” the Mustangs.
You CAN bring your OWN saddle if you have one that you love to ride in.
