Crossing a Ranch River on Horseback

Why did the horses cross to the other side? Because it’s loads of fun!

Horses are wetting their whistles before heading across the pristine Boulder River.

The horses know their way, so they are able to avoid some of the larger boulders in the river. Guests enjoy the experience of actually being in the river…without getting wet! Early in the season the river level is high enough to cause wet boots or pant legs to occur if you have long legs…or a short-legged horse.

There is nothing more enjoyable than taking a river ride on a foggy autumn day. Beauty is all around you.
