Idaho Horse Drive
Silver Spur Ranch - Idaho, America
The ranchers need to bring young horses back to HQ to be broken in and sold on. You can join them and be part of that experience.
This is one of the most popular activities. You will have three nights at the ranch and three out under canvas. You will drive some 25 to 30 head of stock over about 60 miles of unfenced country.
This ranch is located close to the Idaho / Montana border and the Continental Divide. It is bordered by several thousand acres of State land and natural forests. There is no mains water or electricity so all the log cabins have propane heating & lighting and hot outdoor showers and outdoor toilets. A cook house for meals and a cozy bunk house or cabins for sleeping will make your experience more comfortable.
Sunday is your day of arrival when you get to know your companions for the week, Monday is spent getting to know your mount and riding in the vicinity of the ranch. The drive starts on Tuesday and you will sleep out in pre-erected tents for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night.
You return to the ranch on Friday for the farewell dinner and depart on Saturday usually after breakfast.
