You will sleep in wall tents or teepee tents. If you choose double occupancy, Double Rafter will match you with another guest around the same age and gender. Accommodation the night before is in a motel, double occupancy. Double Rafter does not include single occupancy at the motel, but in case it is requested, it can be given at a discounted price.
You will likely spend two nights at the Lake Creek Cabin, two nights at the Little Horn Cabin, and a night at the Dry Fork Cow Camp. Depending on the pasture rotation, the days and nights spent at the individual cow camps may change from year to year.
This trip is wide open as far as the number of cattle and what you would be doing. In all likelihood, you will be spending a couple nights in each camp as you ride the entire mountain allotment. These three camps range in elevation from 6,800 feet to over 9,000 feet. You will still be sleeping in a tent, but the beauty to this trip is that when you are finished riding for the day, you actually feed people in the cabin where it is warm and dry. After riding all day in cool to cold weather, it is nice to be able to come in, strip down to your shirt sleeves, and have a meal in a warm comfortable cabin.
Since this trip is the real thing, you will go until you finish the day and reach your destination. Generally, you will be in the saddle a minimum of six hours a day.
You will arrive a day before. You will stay at a motel and have a delicious banquet in the evening. At 08:00, you will be picked up and transport to cow camp. There will be many miles in the saddle. Double Rafter does think you will find this trip quite unique because you will experience things few people will ever see. With the cook’s phenomenal Dutch oven cooking, incredible horses to ride, and the camaraderie around the campfire, you will make new friends forever. You will return to civilization the last day, and the following morning at 09:00, you return to the airport.
At Double Rafter, 98% of the horses are Quarter Horses or Quarter Horse Cross. Double Rafter will determine a horse for you based on your profile. How you perform during the cattle handling seminar and the horsemanship clinic will determine if you stay on that horse or get moved to another one. They want you on a horse that fits your skill level.
This trip will take place in Wyoming, USA.
You will be served Double Rafter cook’s phenomenal Dutch oven cooking and soft drinks.
