Weekender Packages


Be a cowboy – or girl – for the weekend. Anchor D’s Weekender horseback riding trip goes into our Mountain Wilderness Camp, it is a beautiful ride into this camp on a Friday afternoon. Camp consists of canvas outfitter’s tents with cots and foamies, a bathroom tent, and a large kitchen and dining tent.

Anchor D supplies all meals, starting with supper on Friday night after arriving in camp, and ending with lunch on the last day. We supply everything for your horseback vacation except for your sleeping bag and personal gear. Your full weekend of riding through the mountains and enjoying the evening campfires will leave you exhilarated, and with a better understanding of the cowboy way of life.

Friday: Meet at Anchor D at 1:00 p.m. We will truck the horses and gear to the trailhead, where we will load the wagon, give a basic horsemanship course, mount our horses and set off on the trail to Camp.

Saturday: Breakfast is served at 8:30 a.m. We leave camp at 10 a.m. and head out for one of several destinations that are available. We may ride to a high pass that will let you gaze across several mountain ranges to the Continental Divide; you’ll see miles of mountains, valleys, rivers and meadows.

Sunday: Breakfast is at 8:30 a.m. The horses are ready and the wagons are packed by 10:30 a.m., ready to head to the trailhead. The wagons go on ahead, while the riders go on a side trip, to have lunch on a high pass or up a scenic canyon, and then head out for the trailhead. Arrival time at the trailhead is between 4 and 5 p.m. (that’s Cowboy Time!).

Back to Horseback Adventures


My friends and I just finished your weekender ride and I wanted to thank you and your staff for the most wonderful weekend. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we were comfy and certainly we were well fed. I appreciate Pearl and Brit going out of their way to make lunches and dinners that were gluten free, made it much easier for me. Please extend my thanks to Pablo, Georgia, Lindsay and of course to Pearl and Brit for a wonderful time. (Hope I haven't forgotten anyone). Great to have Dewy's music the first night, loved riding Gracey and Dewy was right -- she was great on the trail the second day -- lots of pep, and Anneka was great on the ride home. Awe inspiring countryside. Looking forward to next summer.
