Avid Rider's Week At The Elkhorn
AVID RIDER'S WEEK AT THE ELKHORN
Sunday, August 29 - Saturday, September 4, 2021
Elkhorn Ranch’s tradition of equestrian adventure began 99-years-ago in 1922. Bordering Yellowstone National Park, the history of Elkhorn’s riding program runs deep, and the backcountry is where it starts. This Fall, we are hosting an Avid Rider's week, where we are rounding up experienced riders of varying disciplines to come together and explore over one million acres of National Forest, USFS Wilderness, and Yellowstone National Park. The goal of this week is to go far, not fast. Every day there will be groups that will hit the trails in every direction based on desired time in the saddle and comfort level. We will be racking up the mileage this week and working our way into the backcountry for mountaintop vistas that not many can get to.
Must be willing to ride on rocky and steep terrain, as well as comfortable with walk, trot, and canter. Our horses are well-mannered, athletic, and smart mountain horses, if you trust them, they will take you wherever you aim to go.
The goal of our Avid Rider's Week is to go far, not fast. We view this week as an opportunity to round up equestrians from various disciplines and backgrounds to spend a week exploring, growing, and challenging ourselves as riders.
