The Silver Spur Ranch in Idaho offers a number of genuine cowboy experiences the most popular of which are the Horse Drives.
There are few modern amenities here, rooms have propane lighting and outside loo's and open air shower. (not for the faint hearted this is for the true old fashioned pioneer experience).
These drives are over reservation land so no alcohol is permitted. Advanced riders recommended. Max guests : 15 No camping out return to ranch each evening.
At the end of each days ride you will be picked by vehicle and driven back to the ranch where they will enjoy a hot supper in the cook house and also enjoy a good nights rest in your room. Each morning you will be returned to the herd after breakfast.
