We offer many of the same activities as summer, but take a maximum 20 guests. With a focus on riding and relaxation…the adult-only weeks have proven to be quite popular.

Participants do have to be tested at the beginning of their stay and show that they are able to control their horse in all gates and over various terrains. These programs are guided by some of our more experienced cowboys and wranglers. No matter the level of riding we do at The Hideout, we adopt a Natural Horsemanship Culture respecting our horses under all circumstances.

We adapt the speed and riding to the challenging terrain in this area. Experienced equestrians will notice immediately where one can go fast or not. They know that even the best horse will run out of breath faster at high elevations.
