    Hi All:

    I'm looking to do a ranch vacation but i'm not looking for a pampered dude-ranch type of experience with hot tubs and such. I want to do some real, honest cow/horse work. I don't care about getting dirty. I also want to do some real backcountry riding as well - preferrably in the mountains. One of my equestrian goals is to swim a river on horseback.

    And ok, maybe the hot tub at the end of the day wouldn't be a bad idea but you get my drift :)

    Anybody know of such generally in Western Canada or the northwest United States? I'll look at elsewhere if the experience is right but those are the closest areas to me.
