Cowboy Adventure

Cowboy School

Lessons in things cowboys do for fun!
Every Monday through Friday, after the days cattle work is done and before dinner, we offer an extra three hours of horseback riding. This is an opportunity for guests to further their riding education by participating in 'Cowboy School' - lessons in things cowboys do for fun! Roping is always a popular activity. Colorado Cattle Company offers a step by step program that we have invented, developed and refined that can get any guest - no matter what their previous riding experience from "never ever" to "roping off a horse" in one week. We have several teaching aids we utilize to take guests from beginner right on up to tracking live cattle. We focus our lessons so that guests can learn the correct way to handle a rope and how to handle a rope from a horse.

In addition to roping lessons, Cowboy School also includes team penning, team sorting, cutting, reining, cow catch, tag, barrel racing, pole bending, keyhole race and other fun games that teach cattle handling skills and allow you to improve your riding while you are having fun. Our instructors are professional cowboys, members of the PRCA; Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the NCHA; National Cutting Horse Association and more. These cowboys have not only competed in many, many rodeos, ropings, and cutting competitions, they have also won quite a bit and have trained numerous horses to compete. They have years of knowledge and experience and can share that knowledge with you. Beyond a guest ranch experience, the ranch is committed to sharing the cowboy way, the cowboy's knowledge and helping you to live your dream and become a cowboy.
