  • Hands-On Horse Week

August 7-13, 2016 – Anybody is welcome!

You want to learn as much as possible about horses while you are on vacation?

Engage yourself in this week of guest ranch festivities and become educated at the same time.  Have you ever wanted to learn more about what it takes to care for a horse?  Have you ever wanted to learn how to saddle and unsaddle your own horse?  This hands-on horse vacation week is for you.  We will have plenty of hands-on opportunities for you as well as some demonstrations.  We’ll also have special groups for kids ages 6-12 when appropriate.  A large part of enjoying horses is understanding them.  We’ll take you into the mind of a horse so that you are aware of what your horse is thinking.  Also enjoy some demonstrations on training a horse at different levels—yearlings, 2-year-olds, trail horses, and show horses.  Along with saddle horses (those that are ridden) we’ll introduce you to our draft horse team, Goliath & Decker.  We’ll show you the basics of harnessing and hitching up a team of horses.  If you’re lucky, we may even show you how to drive them (from the ground)!  What would a little education be without some fun?  Of course we’ll have a great time out on the trails, doing cattle work, on our mountain ride, at our campout and during the team penning. This is the educational, hands-on horse vacation you’ve been looking for!  For more information go to http://veebar.com/hands-on-horse-vacation/

  • The adults only portion of our season runs from the last week of August
    through the last week of September. During this time, the ranch quiets,
    crowds diminish in Jackson Hole, fall colors appear, and the weather cools,
    making it the perfect time for couples, singles, and friends to visit our
    dude ranch!
    Our horseback riding program offers beginner to advanced rides for those
    looking to ride, our fly fishing guide offers private lessons on the Gros
    Ventre River, and cooler temperatures make our adults only season an ideal
    time to hike and mountain bike around the ranch. Elk, moose, bison and bears
    are on the move during this time as well, so make sure to bring your camera
    to capture your most memorable moments! In addition, we extend a 10%
    discount to our rates during the late season. Please see our rates page
    <http://www.grosventreriverranch.com/jackson-hole-wy-lodging/rates/>  for
    more details.
