In the spring and summer months, to raise money to support the
Wild Horse Sanctuary in Shingletown offers 2 and 3-day weekend pack trips to the public.
Each day ride the trails created by the wild horses and burros through
oak-studded hills and volcanic rock out croppings--a bit of
paradise dotted with meadows, woods, creeks,
and ponds. Bordering Vernal Lake, our base camp consists of
style sleeping cabins: a "cook" house featuring a main kitchen,
a wood-burning stove, hearty meals, and bathroom facilities,
with hot shower. Evenings are spent relaxing around a glowing
enjoying a peaceful night's rest after a day of adventure.
The Sanctuary is rich in Indian and pioneer history. There are remnants of homesteads, Indian camps, arrowheads, and petroglyphs. The existing ranch house is the site of a past circuit court, complete with hanging tree!
Whether riding the valley floor or the rugged, rock-strewn ridges of
the Sanctuary, visitors enjoy the excitement of wild herds grazing and
running free in their natural surroundings. They share their natural
setting with black bear, deer, quail, dove, wild turkey, gray fox,
coyote, raccoon, badger, bobcat and mountain lion; also hawks, owls,
bald eagles and 150 varieties of song birds.
Rides go out rain or shine. Be prepared to experience the west as it really is.
