Colorado Chapter had a great ride at Hidden Mesa in August.

7 members showed up to ride and all had very relaxed and happy horses.  It turned out to be a great place to teach water crossings,  bridge crossings, and some up and down hill work.  We couldn't have asked for a more perfect ride.  We hope to see you all again on our ride in September!

Brunsdale Family Adventure

by Kenley Brunsdale

Our annual wilderness adventure this year was the most ambitious we have ever attempted - 8 day trip into the Beartooth Wilderness of Montana.  The Beartooth Range extends from the northeast corner of Yellowstone.

 

The trip consisted of a 25 mile ride (in one day) up the West Fork of the Stillwater River – up onto the Lake Plateau.  From a base camp, we then explored a dozen lakes with fabulous fly fishing for four days.  Then we crossed the divide and came down along the Main Fork of the Stillwater River (28 miles) over the course of 2 days.  We were virtually alone for the entire trip.  This is the most pristine wilderness we have ever explored.

 

And of course, our Paso’s did the whole trip over every kind of terrain – including some 6 hour climbs - with no shoes and only the forage they could graze around the places we camped.  No other kind of horse can perform like a Paso in the mountains – not even a mule.

*********What is a Habitat Stamp**********
 
 
You only need the stamp when using a state wildlife area or state trust lands leased by the Division of Wildlife.  Links to a list of these properties is at web address

Please contact the appropriate land manager for permits needed for riding on other public lands.
