Welcome Our June Horse of the Month, Amigo!

by Big Cedar Lodge 19. June 2013 15:46

Our June Horse of the Month is an Appaloosa horse named Amigo! Amigo came to us in April 2011 through Casey Trost, a wrangler at the stables. Before becoming a trail horse, Amigo was used for roping and other rodeo sports. Amigo not only goes on the hour trail rides at Dogwood Canyon, but is a great cattle drive horse as well as a fun horse for the advanced ride! Next time you come to Dogwood Canyon Stables, be sure to meet Amigo!!

 

 

Get Back in the Saddle at Dogwood Canyon

by Big Cedar Lodge 7. June 2013 09:05

Gather your crew and head out to Dogwood Canyon for a private one-of-a-kind horseback view of the majestic Ozark Mountains!  A wrangler will guide your group of up to 6 people on an unforgettable 2 hour trail ride.  Travel up to the tops of the ridges where you will take in some of the most breathtaking 360 degree views the Ozarks have to offer.  Then make your way down the winding valleys and across rolling pastures filled with buffalo and longhorn cattle.  An adventure like this can only be experienced from the back of a horse. Come join us!

Our April Horse of the Month is Bandit! Be sure to request him next time you go on a trail ride at Dogwood Canyon. He is a great horse that can do almost anything: trail rides, cattle drives, and advanced rides!  We are lucky enough to have a picture of Bandit when he just a young foal.  He's 17 years old now and still as handsome as he was back then!  He's always ready for a trail ride so come say hello.

Big Cedar's Horse of the Month!

Hershey came to us at Cedar Mountian Stables in 2006 at approximately 6 years old. He quickly became a guest favorite, as well as a favorite among the wranglers. Hershey is known for his awesome personality and ability to do anything you ask of him: cattle drive, advanced ride or one hour trail ride. He got his name because of his chocolate color and sweet attitude. Hershey is currently offering trail rides at DWC stables, be sure to ask for him next time you go for a ride!

 

Meet Ben, Big Cedar Lodge's Horse of the Month

by Big Cedar Lodge 1. February 2013 10:41

Name: Ben

 

Approximate age: 15

 

Breed: Percheron/Paint Cross

 

Purchase date: 1999, by previous stables manager, and current Buzzard Bar entertainer, Clay Self. Ben was approximately 2 years old when purchased. He was purchased as a riding horse, but kept getting bigger and bigger, so he got moved up to being a wagon horse, then trained to pull the carriage.

 

Favorite Treats: apples, carrots, and marshmallows

 

 

 

Behaviors: Ben is a very athletic horse, he likes to work. He is a carriage horse on BCL property. Occasionally you will find him paired up with Willy, one of our Belgium horses and pulling a wagon. Ben is a very friendly horse and loves to have his picture taken; in fact, he will even pose when you say his name. He spends most of his time hanging out with our miniature Shetland pony, Goober. They are best friends, or should we say, best trouble makers J

 

Ben is a favorite horse among our wranglers…..except when it comes to bath time! With all that white on him, he is really hard to get clean! He is also a favorite among our guests because of his unique coloring and great disposition.  He has pulled the carriage for many weddings, some even at DWC. Ben is our February Horse of the Month!!  Stop by and have your picture taken with Ben, and kids will receive a special surprise.
