GETTING YOUR FOOT IN THE DOOR FOR A POTENTIAL CAREER OR HOBBY IN THE GUIDE OUTFITTING WORLD

Need a career change? Trying to get your foot in the door with a Guide Outfitter? Or just wanting a week getaway to improve your wrangling skills? 
Whatever your reasoning, we have the course for you!

Offering small group sizes of up to 10 participants, this six day course will give you plenty of one on one training with experienced Guides, Outfitters, a Licensed Farrier and Ticketed Faller. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: After successfully completing the course and given a passing review  by the instructors, you will be placed  in a wrangling position, with a Guide Outfitter, for the upcoming season.  You will be marked on your comprehension, capability, enthusiasm, work ethic, determination, honesty and positivity. This is what will determine if you will be placed as a wrangler for the season. If we feel this is not the correct path for you, we will  reimburse you your placement deposit.

We also offer the course at a discounted rate if you do not want a placement., but would like to learn a new skill and have an enjoyable week with some awesome people:)
