Join our posse of wrangler ride outriders for a week-long experience of a lifetime during the Wagon Train and Wrangler Ride of August 21st-27th, 2017 at Western Legends Round-Up. The trek also includes activities and perks during the Western Legends Festival August 24th-26th.
Wrangler outriders will bring their own horses, tack, feed, vehicles, trailers, and other support materials and join the Western Legends Round-Up Wagon Train on the open trail.
This is truly one of those once-in-a-lifetime or “Bucket List” opportunities to ride, photograph, and BE photographed where Hollywood directors like John Ford worshiped, through cinema, these spectacular landscapes.
Ride your pack animal over 60 miles in some of the most iconic Western scenery anywhere: directly below the rim of Bryce Canyon and across the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument!
As with the wagon train guests, all meals are provided (hot breakfast, sack lunch, and dinner). There will be Porta-Potties available and water for the horses. A list of suggested personal items for each participant to bring (mainly clothing, meds, sunscreen, personal hygiene items, etc.) will be provided at a later date. ‘Outriders’ bringing their own horses will be responsible for their own camp/RV needs. We will provide a list of suggested clothing for that climate at that time of year as well.
Average distance per day in the saddle will vary from 10-15 miles with rest stops for water and a lunch break. Shuttles will be included to move your truck & trailer forward to each new campsite daily.
More details about where and when to arrive will be communicated in the coming weeks.
Three items not allowed on the trek (due to safety and insurance requirements) are dogs, firearms, and alcohol. This does not mean those who are traveling with their own living quarters/RV & horse trailers cannot keep alcohol in their vehicles — we just want to make sure folks aren’t drinking on the trail or around the chuck-wagon/campfire in the evening to avoid any chance of undesired behavior. 🙂
When we get to Kanab, that doesn’t mean it’s over! Not by a long shot. Included in your ticket price is the Wagon Master’s Shindig, the Kanab Movie Fort Wagon Tour, and, of course, we’ll “require” you to be part of the High Noon Parade. There will be other goodies as well.
So mark your calendars, start spending some time in the saddle to get you and your horse in ‘Trail condition’, and reserve your spot soon before this ride is sold out — we look forward to seeing you on the Western Legends Roundup Wagon Train and Wrangler Ride this August!
