If you prefer to put in a hard day’s work before you hang your hat each evening, Equitours offers a three-day cattle working clinic in the Texas Hill Country. You’ll meet your fellow wranglers in San Antonio and travel to a tranquil, isolated ranch where you’ll stay in private cabins built from native cedar and limestone. Guests then participate in two sessions a day in which the owner of the ranch instructs them in the art of cattle penning and sorting. The quarter horses used in the clinic are “selected for disposition and responsiveness,” complemented by the instructor’s “quiet and gentle” approach. The working weekend getaway is not limited to riders and activities from fishing and hiking to spa services can also be arranged.
