Vacation of a Lifetime! Please note that not all of these additional activities are available every day.
A Rockin’ R Ranch guest favorite! Wake up early, saddle up, and head out with our wranglers before breakfast to help gather the herd. You’ll also have bragging rights to tell your friends about being a real Cowboy. (Some riding experience is required, and you must be approved by one of our wranglers.)
Learn to ride or tune up your riding skills. One of our wranglers will teach you riding techniques as well as play some fun games to help you ride better. This class is great for all ages and riding abilities! (Maximum of four people per session)
The Wild West means Cowboys, Horses, and Guns! Join us for some clay pigeon shooting. No prior experience is necessary. Our safe and knowledgeable staff will show you how to have a rootin’ and shootin’ good time.
We’ll trailer up the horses to go to nearby scenic Antimony Canyon for a half-day ride to one of the most unique rock formations in Utah–beautiful Cowboy Rock! We’ll take sack lunches and explore the hidden beauties of Antimony Creek and Canyon. Don’t miss your chance to see a part of Utah not very many people know about on a uniqe horse trail ride.
Have you ever wondered how horses go from a wild and bucking animal to a cowboy’s best pal? Learn basic natural horsemanship as you work with some of our young horse stock. We’ll teach you some horse training history and how to communicate with horses. This activity goes hand-in-hand with the Horseback Riding Lesson.
Climb up our natural river cliffs, or rappel over 65 feet onto the banks of the Sevier River! A great activity for small families, family reunions, business retreats and youth conference groups. If your large group is interested, we offer a great group incentive. (Ages 12 and older)
