Featured Community Member - Paden Langford

Paden is tough and he pays attention with quiet concentration – so I don’t recommend messing with him. He has been coming out to The Ranch since he was a baby, and this summer, at the ripe age of ten, he is helping to take care of the horses out at the barn. “What do you like about being here?” I ask. Paden takes a moment to consider the question before he answers, “I like how the ranch is so fun. I like meeting new people. I like all the fun stuff I get to do.” In terms of riding, his favorite thing is “enjoying the ride and the pretty country.” Paden has ridden calves and steers in rodeos too, but it isn’t the main thing that makes him a cowboy. No, the main thing that makes him a cowboy is his heart; he’s got that grounded gentleness about him that only the truest and best cowboys have.

Gidget FAN Club, THANK YOU!

Gidget check out your valentine!

Hello "Gidget Fan Club"...  Thank you again for a bushel of Valentines for Gidget!

In the winter the horses are pastured on the mesa south of Durango.  Of course they are enjoying the warm, kind of mild winter and getting a bit chubby. 

As I walk towards Gidget (the most famous horse of them all) with a hand full of valentines, she seems to know I am coming to talk to her specifically.  I am pretty sure she knows she is the star of "every child's horse dreams".  

Gidget has been treating children to an outstanding week of horseback riding for many years. 

Valentine's day is a big day for Gidget, as we read valentine after valentine.  She bows her head to listen and is simply such a real sweetheart!

There are some horses you know love the children...  Our Gidget is one of those amazing horses. 

We are looking forward to another season. 

Locals don't forget to reserve your spot at this year's youth camp, booking up quickly...

Youth Camp starts June 11th, 2012.  Call for details.  (970) 247-0722

 

 

Awe! At Wilderness Trails we don't need Halloween to Dress Up!

Today is Halloween, and as everyone knows it's the day when the kids dress up as Cowboys and Cowgirls, Super Heroes, Ghosts, Goblins and everything in between and it's really "their day"! Well, at WTR it's kids day (and even kids at heart) every day during family weeks. As we look at photos of this past 2011 summer season we think back on just how much the kiddos add to our ranch days with joy and laughter and how at WTR we don't need Halloween to dress up! 

Take a peek at a couple kids having fun at WTR!

Frontier Day a WTR exclusive

Happy Halloween to all you WTR kids! Have a Fun and Safe time!
