Oct 18-24

October 18-24 Six Days in the Saddle

Back by popular demand! Let the ranch be your host, trail guide, and wrangler! Join us for a seven day adventure on some of Ohio’s best trail systems! We will select some of the best trails at Hocking Hills, Zaleski State Forest, Stroud’s Run, Stone Church, Burr Oak, Tar Hollow, and of course, Smoke Rise Ranch! We will also offer a full day of cattle work, including a cattle drive. We will plan the routes, make the dinner arrangements each night, and even help with hauling your horse! We will take care of everything, all you have to do is load and go. Limited spaces are available, and this event is only opened to experienced riders and horses! The price for this event is $75 per rider for the week. It does not include the cost of lodging or dinner, horse stalls, or line tie. The ranch can trailer your horse for $10 per horse, per day.
