When the weather gets cold and the days get long and dark, it’s time to come up with ideas that get us off the couch and out enjoying the evenings!

What is it?

The Tough Times Ranch Winter Series came about because we were renting a big, beautiful arena for team building during the day and decided to make the most of the facility by hosting  other activities in the evening - activities that could bring the community together and help everyone get over those ‘winter blues’.

We reached out to some of our partners and put together western sporting events like cattle sorting, roping, team roping, obstacle racing, bull riding…..whatever we could come up with. The response was amazing not just for participants but also for spectators as we saw the crowds grow larger and larger over the course of the winter.

These are opportunities for people to come and compete as individuals or in teams, attend a clinic or workshop (lots to choose from) or just enjoy the opportunity to ride their horse inside when the snow is blowing outside.
