Well, today is the first Hideout Blog! For those of you who are not familiar, Blog: an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page. So for the Hideouts blog, we figure it is simply a great way to keep in touch with our guests and what is happening on the ranch.
At the same time as the arrival of the first blog, we have the arrival this week of the new Mustang. Ramon Castro (one of The Hideout’s trainers & wranglers) has been excepted to compete in the Extreme Mustang Makeover this year. He will have 90 days to train the horse (who is totally wild) to work with riders, compete in cattle work and go through a series of obstacle courses before the final show in June.
The name “mustang” derives from Spanish mesteño, meaning “stray livestock animal”. Today the ‘wild mustangs’ or free-roaming horses are protected under United States law, but have disappeared from several states where there were once established populations. Many of our guests will have enjoyed the familiar site, while travelling to The Hideout from Cody, of seeing the McCullough Peaks Mustangs.
