The non-refundable deposits are the commitment that customers make to me that tell me to go ahead and sign contracts with the horse vendor, employees, the farrier, insurance, my federal and state permits, and other commitments that have to be in place for me to continue doing business. The non-refundable deposit policy has been in place since we started our company over 24 years ago. I always recommend guests purchase the travel insurance, in case YOU decide to cancel your trip, FOR ANY REASON, INCLUDING COVID 19-RELATED ILLNESS OF YOURSELF OR ANYONE YOU NEED TO STAY HOME AND CARE FOR. If you test positive for Covid-19 within 30 days or less of your ride week, we need to talk. To read and acknowledge that you understand and agree to the cancellation policy, which is a part of the Statement of Policies 2023, CLICK HERE.

Our saddle remuda is composed of Western-type horses. This includes ranch-type Quarter Horses, Quarter/Draft cross, ranch-type Paints, and a few mustangs. These horses are gentle, sound, intelligent and are not the stereotypical “dude horse.” They are all well-suited to the faster paced riding in rough country that our experienced riders engage in, yet quiet and gentle for the less vigorous pace appropriate for novice and intermediate skill level riders. There are no gaited horses used in this operation, as gaited horses are not commonly considered a Western-type horse.
We have developed our own custom trail saddle, the Blue Sky Sage Signature “Double Wade”, which every guest and staff member will ride. Here is a link to the history of this exceptional close-contact trail saddle.

Your package must arrive a full week ahead of the first day of your trip so we have time to pick it up in town.
We are asked each year about the proper etiquette of tipping staff members. Gratuities for the crew make up a substantial part of employee earnings for the short season worked. If you are inclined to reward any or all of the staff members for the extra effort they make for you, it will most certainly be appreciated.
The ride staff consists of the Lead Guide, Assistant Wrangler, and perhaps a Camp/Corral Assistant. An appropriate range for gratuities for the service performed is between $100-$300 for each Ride Staff member, from each individual guest. Because the Ride Staff is working directly for each guest every day, we feel it is a more personal moment between guest and our hardworking head guide and wranglers to leave it up to you to make this effort one-on-one, or the group can pool the gratuities and Bobbi will distribute them evenly among the Ride Staff. This guideline is just a range and is not set in stone.
Our catering is provided by White Pine Resort and their staff. An 18% gratuity will be added to your invoice for these folks who work hard behind the scenes to provide the fabulous meals served.
