“A Dream Trip”

If you want a great horseback hunt with quality horses/mules “Best of the West Outfitters” is the place to go. Bruce’s guides are top-notch and also top-notch cowboys who often frequent the rodeo circuit. This is a great plus in coaching us flat-landers on what we need to know about horsemanship.
