McKenzie’s Trails West hosts several special events over our season.  From our  pack horse school  to our delicious cowboy BBQ to women’s retreat and  family reunions we are happy to share our little piece of heaven with all.  Call us for details and to book your special event.

Pack School

We are excited to offer another comprehensive packing clinic with renowned outfitter Darren McKenzie.  After spending a productive day perfecting the diamond hitch, you will be ready to pack up your own string of horses and discover new backcountry trails.

Ladies' Retreat

Women from all walks of life will enjoy this rustic retreat with an emphasis on beginner horsemanship, confidence building, and community.  We are thrilled to have for the first time long time horse “whisperer” Russ McKenzie and his warm and engaging wife Sandi host this meaningful event.

Cowboy BBQ

Bring your appetite and your friends for a memorable wilderness trail ride followed by our tasty Cowboy BBQ.  Our “seasoned” cookie has definitely flipped his share of steak and is ready to treat you to a perfect grill with a little gruff western wisdom on the side.


Join the boys as they head out on the  annual spring trail cleaning for a fraction of the cost of a regular pack trip.  Although creature comforts are not their top priority, they are heavy on adventure and comradery.


We know it can be hard to find the perfect western venue to make your special day perfect.  We can provide an authentic western setting for small weddings.  Contact us to learn more about our facilities and to view the property.

Custom Rides

Contact us to create a unique custom ride for family reunions, weddings, or school trips.  From large group trail rides to fun poker rallies, we can have your group ready for anything.

Future Cowboy Program

Our brand new Young Cowboy Program is designed to give children who would not otherwise have the chance, an opportunity to experience trail riding in the Rockies.  We are looking for short essay submissions from kids aged 7-18 years old explaining who they are and  why they would like a chance to ride with us.

Hay Rides

Gather up your friends and family and come on out for an evening of good old fashioned fun.  A 45 min ride ends with a traditional campfire and wiener roast.  Hot dogs and marshmallows  included.
