All Wrangler Positions are filled for the fall/winter season

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

We have filled our last wrangling positions at STGR.  We continue to have Craig and Jesse, who have been great assets to the riding program at the ranch.  We have now added Steve, a friend of Jesse’s from Wisconsin, who is adapting to the warmer Arizona weather nicely.  We also welcome wrangler Scott from Colorado who has done trail riding for many years.  We look forward to a great fall/winter season.

We will still be needing to fill a wrangling position in early February once Jesse and Steve head back to school in the Midwest.  If you are interested in wrangling at STGR from early February through May 2009, please email us at: and send us a detailed resume.  Thanks.  Giddy Up!

Labor Day Weekend

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

The ranch is closed for the extended weekend for this much needed break from the busy past few weeks.  We have all adapted to the new roles being played at the ranch.  Dan & Carrie’s niece Mary has left us yesterday to head back to Wisconsin.  She was our on-site massage therapist and is moving back because she has become engaged to her boyfriend back home and she was only expected to stay at the ranch for a year.  We got her for a few extra months!  We wish her well in her driving trip back to the midwest.  Lilah and her will be greatly missed.  We do have a massage therapist in the nearby town of Lake Havasu City that will be coming out to the ranch to do massages.  Guests need to let us know if they are interested in receiving one ahead of time if possible.  Joanne is great and used to be our massage therapist before Mary moved to Arizona.

Vicki is a certified esthetician and will be offering facial waxing, along with facials and more starting in late September, as additional spa services.  More info on this to come….

We also welcome two additional wranglers to the team, Chuck and Steve.  Chuck lives locally in Arizona and is a veteran cowboy.  Steve is a friend of Jesse’s from back in Wisconsin and will be heading out to the ranch in September to help through the winter season.

We look forward to our upcoming guests.  Keep the comments coming!  Happy Trails!

Last Weekend of the Season and for J&J…

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Our last guests for the season will be arriving soon and will stay through Sunday morning.  When they checkout we will officially be closed for about 6 weeks until mid-July when we re-open for the remainder of the year. It has been an incredible season with a lot of great times! and thanks to all the wranglers, staff, and of course the guests for making it so enjoyable. Updates on the staff – Trey is back in Canada on the Rodeo circuit and Scott is in Big Bear, CA with his wife Sherry at the YMCA camp. Craig is staying on this summer to watch over the ranch, dogs, cats, and horses with Randy. Jeremy, Jodi, and Sophie are leaving the ranch on Monday and will be moving back to Wisconsin and will be “replaced” by Dan and Carrie’s daughter, Vicki, and her husband, Tony, who have both lived and worked at the ranch in the past. Their will be more information on that in a later post as I just don’t want to close that chapter yet – still have 3 days left here at this beautiful ranch.

Trey Cochran Is Coming Back…

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

We have filled one of our wrangler positions when Trey Cochran saw our note on the website and wrote us immediately. He wrangled here in the Fall & Winter of 2005 and Spring of 2006. He is very experienced in the rodeo circuit and has been a wrangler on several ranches. We look forward to him returning back to Stagecoach Trails. He will be here from February through the end of May until he has to return to Canada for the beginning of the rodeo circuit. He loves to teach guests how to rope so don’t be afraid to ask him.
