Horseback Riding Vacations

  • John Wayne's Monument Valley Horseback Ride

I had always “prayed” for a dusting of snow on this landscape.  For the first 3 years of doing this ride, all we got were nice sunny, clear skies… highs in the mid-60’s.

Then, on our 3rd day of riding 2015 we awoke to more than just a mere dusting of snow… at the lodge we have two to three inches.  In the valley they received well over twice as much.

Our wrangler called early.  “What’s the plan?” he asked.  “We ride!” I responded.  He moaned.  It was a good call… everyone admitted later.  By noon, it had all melted.  But what a wonderful adventure!

This was also our 2nd year to offer a more “official” CAVALRY DAY… and it continues to be well received.
