Adopt a Horse at Rafter Six

Posted on: January 22nd, 2015

Rafter Six is starting an Adopt a Horse initiative to help cover the costs of their horses. It was a sad day when the Cowley family had to close the Rafter Six Guest Ranch, but we were very happy when the Cowley family opened Horseback Riding and Camping in the land adjacent to the original location in May 2014. The Cowley’s are still working to get back on their feet. The historic “Rafter Six” branded Horse Herd went from 85 horses in 2012 to 38 horses in 2014.

You can help the Cowleys re-open their Horseback Riding in May 2015 and stay in the business of horses and people by adopting a horse. The Cowley’s explain that “Every dollar contributed goes directly to maintaining the “Rafter Six” horse herd with hay, feed, mineral supplements, veterinary care, farrier care, grazing pasture and transportation costs to and from Winter and Summer pastures.”

Horses are expensive to maintain, but the joy of riding horseback in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is well worth the investment! Click here to learn more about the Adopt a Horse program and to meet the unique blend of horses in the Rafter Six herd.
