Gold Buckle Champions Reaches Internationally!

The Idaho Tourism Association, with Nancy Richardson, reached a German documentary company and brought 6 teens from Germany to learn to be a cowboy. While in Idaho they stayed with Brad Ford at the 4D Longhorn Ranch off Highway 55 on Idaho's scenic byway.
The 4D Ranch also caters to groups for corporate retreats, weddings and family reunions. Enjoy the clean, crisp mountain air, while at the same time learning the cowboy way of life. Some of the activities that are offered during your vacations or event at 4D Longhorn Guest Ranch are:

  • Weekly Cattle Drive
  • Guided Trail Rides
  • Horsemanship Skills such as Horseback Riding, Roping, Cutting, etc.
  • Riding and Roping Lessons
  • Team Building Programs and more

In addition to all of the western activities that they offer, you will also find a full function lodge complete with cards, poker table, pool table, horseshoe pits, mountain biking, hiking, and much more.

With the German student guests they learned to rope dummies all week, and then were treated to tickets to the world famous Snake River Stampede by the gracious SRS Board of Directors.  The German Documentary producer wanted to reward the group for all their hard efforts in learning how to rope with a special treat of roping with some of the SRS rodeo stars.  Tyler Shannon of Caldwell, Idaho and Jack Fisher of Ellensburg, Washington jumped up to volunteer their time to this fabulous group.  They were not the only rodeo stars to volunteer their time to show these kids that rodeo is not just a sport, but a lifestyle.  The cowboy mounted shooters also took the kids to a practice area and let them try their hand at shooting balloons with blanks.  The team definitively got what they needed to put together a great documentary for the German Public Television.
Special thanks to all that made this possible.  Good show Idaho!
