Long Valley Spring Cattle Drive assists fourth generation ranchers in Arizona

Long Valley Spring Cattle Drive

Ride Overview

On this cattle drive in Arizona you participate in an authentic western ranching event.The ranch is operated by a large extended clan who have run cattle in this country since it was first settled. They are experienced riders and congenial hosts who are proud to share this unique experience with a handful of outsiders. Move the cattle from the ranch headquarters, back onto their summer pastures on the Bryce Canyon Plateau.The country’s character is very much defined by the brilliant red and pink cliffs of the Bryce formation. The narrow sage and grass covered valleys are bordered by the rugged cliffs, which in turn give way to the open meadows and pine, fir and aspen forests of the high country.

Accommodations & Food

Nights will be spent in vehicle-supported camps located at sites along the trail. Spring bar canvas tents are utilized which comfortably fit two people and their gear. Mattresses and cots are provided to sleep on and you can either bring your own sleeping bag or rent one from the outfitter for $ 35 for the week. A portable toilet is provided at the campsites. Warm water is available for washing hands and face in the morning and evening. Shower facilities are not available.
In general this is a "minimalist camping experience," and appeals to riders who are willing to experience rustic conditions to experience an authentic cattle drive. Riders should be prepared to help with chores around camp; set up tents, tack and untack one's own horse, and lend a hand wherever assistance is needed.
An assortment of home-cooked meals will be provided while on the trail. The cuisine is classic American Western--hearty, varied and perfect for the setting.
