From the Ranch - "Flint Hills Ranchin Adventures
Rex Buchman of the Bar U Ranch in Burdock Kansas and Matthew Jobe of the C Bar J Ranch in Windsor Missouri have teamed up yet again! This duo has been keeping the iconic western heritage of the United States alive in the present day, by providing authentic old west cattle drives and other adventures to the public. These adventures take place north west of Strong City Kansas, on thousands of acres of the historical and scenic Flint Hills. On a typical drive weekend these two authentic cowboys spend the first day educating on the history of cattle drives and the proper, humane ways of working cattle, roping, branding, sorting, reading a cows’ driving language, gathering and driving cattle. The evenings we will retire to the ranch owned guest house, The StoneHorse. The stately bed and breakfast has all the comforts of home, and a mix of old west and classic décor, sure to fit any demands. Located in a small western town, with the amenities to allow you to relax in a truly unique environment. Homemade rib sticking dinner, breakfast and lunch on the trail is provided during most events. Our mealtime together, allows a social gathering where you will get to know and meet lifelong friends as well as cut up with our truly humorous hosts. All the while taking in the beautiful views from an expansive front porch, or the grand dining or sitting rooms. On day two the group will gather and drive the herd of cattle ten to seventeen miles to their new pastures. This experience will allow you moments of untouched peace and quiet, relaxing views and a raw beauty unlike any you have seen before. The gentle rolling Flint Hills, provide you with unique photography opportunities, and your new friends and the cattle will be willing subjects for you to capture your lifelong memories on “film.” Bring your own horse or rent one of trail ready, highly trained, quality horses available. This team has the experience needed to set you up with the right horse to enhance your experience. Some prior riding experience is preferred for all participants, as this is not your typical trail ride. The drive involves several hours of riding through different terrains. However, they will cater to the needs and experience of the riders and provide quality education on horsemanship, and as a bonus you are guaranteed to learn some history and jokes from these two seasoned story tellers. This is a truly unique experience taking part in a western tradition, in a land that is raw and untouched by the modern era. A laid back, working environment that leaves your mind, and soul refreshed, like only nature and horses can do. One of the most underrated elements of this great horseback adventure are the folks you will be meeting and working with on the job. You will be sure to make some lifelong friends with other guests as well as with the gang running the show."
