Cowgirl Roundup – Ladies Only 5-night Getaway

June 4th-9th, 2017 & October 5th-10th, 2017

$1595/cowgirl (includes lodging, 14 wholesome meals, daytime activities, and evening entertainment) – rates exclude 3.55% state tax + gratuity

Bring your mom, your best friend, your daughter, or your sister for an unforgettable stay!  Making friendships with other “Cowgirls” and bonding with your Sylvan Dale horse puts this experience at the top of the list.  Take advantage of ability-level riding instruction from our wranglers. You’ll then be able to use the skills you’ve learned on adventure rides, team penning, the High Stakes Poker Ride, and the Overnight Pack Trip (summer only).

But… don’t think that you have to be an experienced rider to enjoy a great horse experience. Our riding program speaks to all ability levels and we will partner you with just the right mount.

We appreciate the need to gear down from busy and complicated lifestyles. Therefore, cowgirl relaxation is high on the list. Relax and reflect with a quiet walk along the river or head down to Cottonwood Gulch and get lost in the pages of your favorite book. Sign up for yoga or a massage followed by listening to the river flow. (Massage would be an add-on)
