Take part in ranching’s oldest tradition and learn to gather cattle, wrestle a calf, vaccinate, and ear tag.
This is a hands on, team-oriented experience that puts you in the center of the action with Zapata’s cattle herd. Through the week explore the ranch, ride through our 2,000 head bison herd and the Great Sand Dunes National Park on horseback and end the week with a cattle gather and traditional branding. Also available are interpretive hikes with a naturalist, roping and leather working sessions. At an additional cost, massage, rafting and fly fishing are available.
$3,150 per person includes all meals, activities, and lodging. Taxes and gratuities not included.
Set back in a shady cotton woodgrove beneath the majestic 14,000-foot peaks of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains lies the historic Zapata Ranch headquarters and lodge, which was established in the late 1800’s. Elk, mule deer, migratory birds, eagles, and black bear also call this area home. The rooms are beautifully furnished and have an elegant southwestern decor that gives them the feel of home. All rooms have individual tiled bathrooms and views that are private, peaceful, and beautiful in any season.learn more about Zapata
