Double Rafter Cattle Drive
Jul 17, 2016 - Jul 22, 2016
This is our fourth clinic at the historic cattle ranch near Sheridan, WY. This clinic is for JMHP riders to put all the skills they have learned in previous clinics into practical application on a working ranch in the magnificent Bighorn Mountains, WY.
Folks, it just doesn’t get any better or more cowboy than this! We’ll start right off branding calves in a high meadow and then spend the remainder of the week driving the herd of cattle through high mountain parks and canyons, across pristine rivers, and through tall aspen and pine forests to the herd’s new pasture some 40 miles from where we started. You’ll experience life much the same as the Wyoming cowboys did 150 years ago far from any signs of modern civilization of conveniences. You and your horse will work as a team and along with your fellow JMHP riders keep the wily bovines in line and moving in the right direction. We can expect to spend 10-12 hours a day in the saddle; eat around the fire; take baths in mountain snow-fed rivers; and sleep soundly each night under a blanket of stars, with sore muscles from a long day’s ride, and a satisfied smile on our faces knowing we measured up with the cowboys of days long ago.
This is an opportunity of a lifetime to experience a true cattle drive and one not to be missed!
Open to: 17 Semper Fi Fund/America’s Fund members that have participated in at least one prior JMHP clinics.
