Annual Horse Drive
By Wrangler Network contributor and photographer, Janet Kotwas
Since 1962 the Sombrero Ranch has driven one of the largest horse herds in Colorado more than 60 miles from their remote 50,000 acre wintering area near Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge to the 18,000 acre Sombrero Ranch, located 13 miles west of Craig, Colo. Each spring the Sombrero Ranch wranglers spend almost two weeks rounding up approximately 600 horses near Browns Park. As the herd leaves the leased BLM corrals, the wranglers are joined by roughly 100 other ranchers and participants to help drive the herd 62 miles.
The horse drive has evolved over the years to include guest riders that will literately fly from all corners of this earth to take part in a true western experience. Read more
