With knowledge comes power. For nearly 12 years, 'Ladies Only Double E Ranch Cowgirl Camps' have introduced women of all ages and riding disciplines to the amazing relationship shared between woman and horse by becomming more confident, skilled riders.

Whether you have lost your confidence, have recently made the decision to get back onto a horse after raising a family, or you are finally able to fulfill your lifelong dream of learning to ride and owning your own horse, Double E Ranch has a Cowgirl Camp designed just for you! Cowgirl Camps are scheduled throughout the year, accommodating a variety of levels and interests.

Do you have a taste for adventure and new challenges? Empower yourself by signing on for 5 full days of wide open spaces in our southwestern Cowgirl Camp classroom. Ride back in time with authentic western tradition, safe horses and patient instruction. Bring your best friend, your sister, your mom! It's a week you'll remember for a long time - share it with someone you love!

Loping Along Creek
Not a spa/resort-type Cowgirl Camp, Double E Ranch Cowgirl Camp encourages  you to challenge yourself push the envelope a little! Improve current riding skills and learn new ones with our patient, knowledgeable staff who will guide you through various levels of horsemanship customized to your specific needs: from basic ranch horsemanship techniques, how to communicate effectively with your horse, how to relax and enjoy a trail ride - to giving you what it takes to begin entry level competition in many disciplines. YOU become a better rider.  

Let us help you achieve your goals! We make every effort to keep Guest capacity  small - with a maximum of 6 to 8 Cowgirls, providing plenty of opportunities for individual attention and instruction.  Ask questions, share your concerns, let us hear your goals. We'll listen!

Along the way, you'll develop the confidence to challenge yourself with a cowgirl camp rodeo. Try barrel racing, gymkhana events and some team penning.  Guaranteed - you'll make new friends who share similar interests from all over the United States and Europe!  Enthusiasm is contagious and your personal accomplishments are real and meaningful!  This week is all about YOU.  But, in order for us to meet your expectations,  we need information -- don't be afraid to tell us what your goals are, what you want to try or need to work on!

Our horses are gentle, trust-worthy, willing.  Your horse and saddle will be selected especially for you by one of our staff, based on your own personal horseback riding skill level.  Your comfort is our priority.  Let us know if the "fit" isn't right.

You'll be encouraged, supported and applauded with every one of your achievements.  Whether you are a novice, beginner, timid rider, or just want to improve current skills and learn new ones Double E Ranch "Cowgirl Camp" offers you an opportunity to live your dream of being a confident horse woman.  Share the day's adventure with your new friends, and revel in your achievements.  You've earned it!  You deserve it!  We'll help you make it happen!

While the Staff at Double E Ranch will make every effort to ensure you have a memorable experience during Cowgirl Camp, our program is never so structured that we can't or won't make adjustments to the itinerary. Please remember that Double E Ranch is a working cattle ranch. There may be unplanned events, situations or conditions which will require us to alter or adjust our published itinerary. We will make every effort to minimize the impact on your visit.  Don't be shy...we always encourage you to tell us what your expectations are!

Cowgirl CampSUNDAY AFTERNOON ARRIVAL:  Arrive at the Ranch Sunday afternoon, relax, unpack and join Ranch Staff for dinner at 6 p.m. where you'll meet other Cowgirls.  Staff will complete your registration, answer any questions and collect any balance that may still be due. We'll show you to your cabin. 

If flying into Silver City, Ranch Staff will pick you up in Silver City at the Airport. This time is subject to airline schedule change.  Please!  Reconfirm your arrival time and advise the office in advance.  With airport security as it is, we will not assume anything.
