Default Question

Would you take your family on a trail ride through a working ranch. Rides would last 2 to 4 hours. Longer rides would include a meal.
Each ride will have a wrangler for each 10 persons.
We are close to Splashway and several people have asked what else is there to do here.
cost would be from 30 to fifty dollars an hour depending on the ride

Are you worried about somebody getting hurt or the $$??

The former, I’d go. The latter, not so much.

I would come do it and I live in Sheridan just so my daughter could ride.

I think if you got with Splashway and got a way to advertise out there, it could blow up. I mean the campground is already packed but there are a lot of activities going on out there too

Make it a rule that cell phones are not allowed on the ride; otherwise, they are wasting time

Sounds like a good idea but $200 per person (4hours) for the ride, Don't think its for me.

I wouldn't, because I go to get away from that kind of stuff.........but I bet you could make a killing. Be nice if splashway would let you advertise in their office/check-in. I say go for it!

To me a landowner in that area would be crazy not to try and cash in on the amount of people Splashway draws in.

Its a good idea.

Not sure it would work too well during the peak Splashway season when its hotter than Hades. When its ideal riding weather its not ideal Splashway weather.

That actually sounds like fun however $50/hr is a little steep for my family of 5. That's $1000 for 4 hours for my family of 5...

Several people have commented on the price. those are estiments.
Groups are cheaper. May even have a TBH discount.
This is all in the planing stage and the liability ins is a big factor.
Thanks to all who responded.
