This is an example of what a week might look like at Dry Creek Wranglers School.

No matter if you are a wrangler or a private horse owner, you will have the opportunity to walk away a better horseman.

A good day begins with a good nights sleep. At Dry Creek Wrangler School this year, you will be staying in a historic stone ranch house built in 1898. Several of the bedrooms have been turned into guest rooms with bunk beds. There will also be a room with a full size bed for couples. While maintaining it’s historic ambiance, the house has been thoroughly updated to provide all necessary modern amenities.

Every day starts with home cooked breakfast, followed by morning lessons, a light lunch, afternoon break then afternoon lessons, with plenty of hands-on learning. Enjoy a hearty cowboy supper discussing the days events with time for a question and answer session. Then end the day relaxing together around the campfire before retiring.
