Chicago, IL
Red Meat Market
Wanna be a real Cowboy for a day?

 

Time to Cowboy up and get back to simpler times, and cater to the cowboy/cowgirl in you! Come join us in some fun with cows and horses. Make a memory with your family or buddies that will last a lifetime. You report at 9:00am on Saturday at a beautiful ranch just outside of Harvard, IL. When you arrive (in your Boots and Jeans) you’ll meet our cattle rancher and expert ropers, he has gentle, fun horses available for every level rider.

CowboysWhether you are a beginner rider or an accomplished show person, you will learn something in these clinics. You will work on exercises that will help you gain more control over your horse, and help you with your balance and timing on a horse. You’ll learn cutting and sorting techniques all before lunch. After a hearty lunch you’ll head to the most beautiful pastures northern Illinois has to offer. You ride through lush green grass and cool winding streams. You’ll gather and drive cattle through the streams and into the sorting pens. You’ll practice sorting and cut out several steers. Yup, some wont ever see the pasture again. They’ll be loaded into a trailer and taken to Red Meat Market. Thats the business that happens everyday on the ranch. By 3:00 your day is done and you’ll be full of sweat, dirt, sun burned and smell of horses. You’ll feel a real sense of accomplishment and pride like you’ve never felt before.

Makes a great Fathers day gift or Bucket list check-off!

The ranch is only an hour and 15 minutes from Chicago and 15 from Madison and an hour and half from Milwaukee!

Class size must contain 5 people so register now and and we’ll let you know the next date!
