Monday arrival (Check-in at DTR Lodging between 4pm and 5pm.)
Arrive early to check out the Ranch, go for a hike, or enjoy one of the many local attractions. Then join us at the Lodge for a Dinner Wagon ride and Camp orientation from 5pm - 6:30pm. Upon our return, you will have the opportunity to dine at Heck's (billed separately).

The afternoon, from 1:30pm to 4pm, will provide time for additional groundwork and riding introductions. Un-tack and turnout for the day. Then spend the evening relaxing by the pool, playing games in the game room, watching a movie and eating dinner.

From 1:30pm to 4pm, we'll gather cattle for some team penning in the arena. Un-tack and turnout for the day. 4pm to 6pm will feature a team driving demonstration. Get hands-on experience or practice your roping skills (not on horseback).
