Horseback Antler Shed Hunt

May 4 @ 10:00 am


Hunt antler sheds by horseback on opening weekend! Here’s your chance to join Erin and friends on an exhilarating hunt for antler sheds through some of the most beautiful country on the Western Slope! We’ll saddle up and venture into scenic wilderness areas, where we’ll explore trails and open landscapes in search of antlers shed by deer, elk, and moose. Horseback antler shed hunting is a unique outdoor experience that combines the thrill of horseback riding with the excitement of searching for naturally shed antlers! You’ll enjoy the connection with nature and the opportunity to enjoy horseback riding as well as a sustainable and non-invasive way to collect antlers. What you find you get to take home with you! Antlers can be used for various crafts and decorative purposes.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
