Trick Roping at the Silver Spur

There’s never a dull moment at the Silver Spur Ranch, but one of our guests’ favorite forms of entertainment here is trick roping. In case you’ve never heard of it before, trick roping is a competitive art form involving the spinning of a lasso. It began in wild west shows in the 19th century and became widely popular thereafter. We know firsthand, since trick roping is a staple when it comes to entertainment out here on the ranch!

Summer Isn’t Summer Without Campfire Cooking

At the Silver Spur Guest Ranch, we love summer. It makes us nostalgic for our childhood days of running barefoot through fresh-cut grass as soon as we heard the tinny jingle of the ice cream truck around the corner. And as summer connoisseurs, if you will, we know one thing to be absolutely true: summer isn’t summer without campfire cooking. You don’t have to be on a dude ranch to understand just how great it is, but we’ll use our personal experiences as proof of this very important point.
