I'm sure if you are on their horses a wrangler is required. When I was there we told the wrangler we wanted to really get out and have some fun, so about 5 of us went out about 4 hours and had so much fun. Parts of it were not for the faint of heart
The ranches have different plans. I know the one we went to allows day rides so you don't have to stay there, while others require a 2-night stay.
We could always set up in the park for a get-together and maybe those of us who want to ride go the day before or after.
TBJ, I would guess that they have some horses for English riding since they accomodate so many different people. Lots of Europeans on vacation.
