Nestled in a lush irrigated valley of hay fields, pastures and fruit
trees, the ranch is surrounded with rolling high desert hills, sagebrush
and wild flowers. Students registered are asked to arrive after 2pm

Typical daily routines begin at about 7 am around a Country Continental
Breakfast. Everyone then saddles up and is ready to ride by 8 am in
the morning session. Lunch break is around noon. Afternoon sessions
run from about 1 - 2 pm but are flexible from day to day. Some days
will be more involved with round pen, arena and individual sessions
but on other days there may be more time spent out on the trail for
that 'magic time'. During the evenings, folks will gather around the
campfire to review the day's accomplishments, spin tales and forge
friendships which will last a lifetime.
For those staying in the bunkhouse, accommodations are primitive but
quaint, neat and clean. RV accommodations are on site. And three miles
down the road in Richland is the Hitchin' Post Motel where reservations
are made at the General/Grocery Store and the phone is turned off
at 9 pm. But regardless of where one may stay, the hectic pace of
everyday life is left behind during a Wil Howe Ranch Schooling Session.
