Dude Ranch Challenge Courses: Part 1
Colorado Dude Ranch Vacation
Single Person Challenge Course
So many of our guest ranch guests have been here numerous times, so every year or two we try to
add something new to our “standard” adventures
all designed to make you VERY dirty,
very tired &
maybe a little bit sore
Wrangler Nick is back (yee-haw!) & he is drawing and building not one challenge course, but three!
A Single Person Challenge Course
A Team Challenge Course
A Kid and Horse Obstacle Course
Nick is a “graduate” of the “2012 Colorado Tough Mudder,” An obstacle course phenomenon with lots of, yes… you guessed it, mud! Twelve miles with 22 obstacles and an unbelievable amount of mud.Completely insane.
How many obstacles? Ohmygosh! Who knows?
He will start with as many as he can get set up this spring if it ever stops snowing!
(Who-hoo! We have water this year!) And then he will continue to add as he is inspired by this June’s Tough Mudder,
and then next year’s
and then the year after,
First, Nick is building a “Single Person Challenge” (death waiver required).
What’s going to be in it?
- Pipe crawl
- Walls to climb
- Balance beam
- Hand over hand (rope version)
- The tire swing (Sounds easy? Ha! You aren’t paying attention!)
I’m requesting he add:
- An under/over Log Jam Crawl/Climb
- Single log climb overs
- Pull-up bars
So if you want to try a new dude ranch adventure,
it will be waiting for you right here at the Sundance Trail !
Are you getting excited?
Can you feel the burn?
Come see us!
Do you have any favorite obstacles that you would like to see included in this course?
Let Nick know (970-224-1222 or firstname.lastname@example.org)! But Dan says: “No ice water baths, no electric shocks, no mud (well… maybe a little mud…)!
Next week I’ll tell you more about his Team Challenge Course and his Challenge Course for the kids to work their horses in.
Note: none of the pictures here are from our property. Nick can’t build in the snow! But these photos give a pretty good idea of what some of the challenges might look like.[A huge special thanks to Tough Mudder for letting me use some of their photos! And for inspiring us...]
