Hondoo riding Utah

Hondoo Rivers & Trails- Camp or Ride Inn-to-Inn through a Utah National Park! Mention "Equitrekking" and receive $100.00 off

Enjoy a trail riding vacation in Utah’s red rock canyonlands surrounding Capitol Reef National Park! Mention "Equitrekking" to get $100 off.

Utah’s canyonlands were the last explored region in the continental United States. Bounded by the Grand Canyon on the south and the Uintah Basin on the north, this New England sized landform is often referred to as the Canyonlands, Canyon Country or 4-Corners Area. It is the largest tract of unspoiled territory in the lower forty-eight and is the home of more formally designated parks, monuments, conservation and wilderness areas than you can shake a stick at. Modern writers have mythologized this landscape as the “Great Back-of-Beyond” and “The Place Nobody Knew”.

Pat Kearney along with her husband Gary George of Hondoo Rivers & Trails have been exploring Utah on horseback for over 40 years. She takes riders on multi-day camping and inn to inn rides through some of Utah’s most stunning national parks and areas for viewing wildlife and wild horses--- like Capitol Reef National Park. Hondoo’s trips focus on scenic and distinctive landforms west of the Colorado River.

Hondoo outfits a full schedule of multi-day horseback riding vacations featuring camping or inn lodging. They can also arrange custom day or multi-day backcountry trips which afford you the opportunity to travel Utah by vehicle, horse, raft, or/and foot.

Single occupancy fee of 10% is waived for Elk Mountain Ranch's adult-only weeks.

Enjoy the mountains as we near the peak of the fall colors in the Colorado Rockies. The already spectacular scenery at the Ranch unveils more glory in the Autumn. Aspens crown the mountainside in golden grandeur.

Fall is exclusively for adults at our Colorado dude ranch. The tranquility and stillness are uninterrupted, whether you’re riding through the aspen forests…or curling up with a favorite book by an crackling fireplace.

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.

Please Note: Rafting is not guaranteed during our adult-only weeks as it is dependent upon the water level on the Arkansas River. We typically raft until Labor Day – so should be able to offer rafting the week of August 26. In lieu of the raft trip the week of September 2, a van trip to Cripple Creek is offered. Cripple Creek is an historic mining town that now allows limited stakes gambling. Let us treat you to a mine tour, which takes you 1,000 feet under ground, and the narrow-gauge train ride. Lunch will be provided with some time to tour the town on your own or try your luck at the casinos.

Rancho Las Cascadas

Rancho Las Cascadas, Mexico- The Day of the Dead Celebration Oct 30- Nov 3, 2018

The Day of the Dead celebration at Rancho Las Cascadas, is an absolutely wonderful experience. It was truly special to be able to participate in such a rich and beautiful Mexican tradition. On October 31st, guests will make offerings to their deceased loved ones on an alter decorated in marigolds.

On October 31st, guests make offerings to their deceased loved ones on an alter decorated in marigolds.

The Rancho serves a six-course meal on November 1st in memory of all our loved ones who have died.

On November 2nd the horses are decorated with marigolds to celebrate.

On the evening of November 1st, the Rancho hosts a six-course dinner in memory of all our loved ones who have died. The feast featured chocolate mole with the main course. Mole is a very special traditional Mexican sauce made of chocolate, chilis, almonds, peanuts, and sometimes up to 40 other ingredients! It is sweet and spicy. A real treat if you haven’t ever tried it.

Bright and early on November 2nd, the guests met by the horses to decorate them with marigolds for an all-day cabalgata (ride). Marigolds symbolize death. Their strong fragrance also helps lead the dead back to their alter. The horses looked absolutely gorgeous as they made their way from town to town and cemetery to cemetery. Even the locals pointed and took pictures!

The all-day ride will bring the guests to Canalejas where they enjoyed carnitas for lunch and were able to peruse the market that had been set up along the main street leading to a large cemetery and church. In the cemetery itself, there was a large crowd gathered for a special mass and hundreds of others decorated the graves of their loved ones. The fiesta at the cemetery was a true celebration of life. Fresh flowers were everywhere. Some people were cleaning and re-painting gravestones. And others were sitting by grave sites quietly reflecting. It was a festive time. A true celebration of life.

Rancho Las Cascadas guests representing the United States, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, and other places, traded stories and came to the conclusion that there really is no other similar celebration anywhere else in the world.
