After three days of fun and fantasy on horseback, it is back to civilization where a hot shower, sit-down dinner, and soft bed await. The next morning, it's on to the Arkansas River for a thrilling ride through the churning waters of Brown's Canyon, followed the next day by a memorable trip along Colorado's best stretch of whitewater through the world-renowned Royal Gorge (for young or less intrepid guests, we can arrange a less demanding alternative). A Friday evening return also gives you and your friends and family time for a weekend exploration of historic Colorado Springs.
2013 Start Dates: June 3rd, 10th, 17th, July 1st & 8th
Weekend 'Saddle & Paddle' Rafting / Riding Trip
A fantastic combo: one day of riding high country trails one day of rafting the wild Arkansas River, and two nights of campfires and tall tales at our outfitters' camp. The riding takes place on our 3,500 acre Bear Basin Ranch in the heart of the Wet Mountains, with stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness Range from across the Wet Valley.
The rafting takes place on the Arkansas River through the churning waters of Brown's Canyon. You will conquer rapids such as Zoom Flume, Raft Ripper, Widow Maker, and Seidels Suckhole in the remote section of the Arkansas called Brown's Canyon. Or, sign up for a wild adventure rafting 20 miles of the best whitewater in Colorado in the Royal Gorge.
