Cowgirls Invited to Be Big Sky Pioneers from October 28-November 1, 2010


DARBY, MONTANA  (September 2010) – Cowgirls are invited to participate in a one-of-a-kind horseback riding adventure, created and led by Triple Creek Ranch owner Barbara Barrett.  The first annual Klicks for Chicks 100-kilometer ride is an all-female upgrade of the all-male 100-mile Los Caballeros and Bohemian Grove endurance horse rides.  With a decidedly Triple Creek Ranch twist, the ride is for women only, and cowgirls will ride rugged all day but return to the luxury of the Rocky Mountain resort at night.  Riders will venture into deep canyons, over mountain passes, past crystal-clear lakes and through open meadows to discover the ‘last frontier’ and wilds of the Rocky Mountain West.  Gourmet evening meals followed by crackling fires in Triple Creek’s luxurious cabins and a relaxing outdoor hot tub will be the reward for a long day in the saddle.


The “100 Klicks for Chicks” program is priced starting at $650 per night, per couple and features three-and-a-half days of riding, concluding with a fireside roast and awards presentation.  All meals, beverages, and activities are included.  Participants will also receive a personalized fleece vest.  Traveling companions not participating in the ride are welcome to enjoy the luxurious accommodations and varied activities that Triple Creek Ranch has to offer while the cowgirls ride off into the sunrise.   Husbands and compadres are invited to join the cowgirls for dinner each evening during the program. 


Known for its spectacular setting in the Montana Rockies, its luxurious accommodations and superb, personalized service, Triple Creek Ranch, an award-winning member of Relais & Châteaux, offers outdoor adventures and luxury under the Montana Big Sky.
