The Agri-tourism Experience
The Sutherland family operates a 100 head horse ranch. Out of respect for the tradition of Chuckwagon driving the Sutherlands have opened their gates to visitors to provide a once in a life-time agri-tourism experience. Guests will experience the life of the Chuckwagon family. Have a greater appreciation for the love and care provided to the horses and learn about the traditions of the horse-powered race.
Chuckwagon races date back to when ‘the West was won’. Cowboys would load up their stoves and tents and race to the bar; where whoever was last had to buy the whiskey. Today, the races begin with the sound of the claxon horn. The outrider loads the symbolic stove, and the team races three other wagons around the half mile of hell.
