I was bouncing in my boots when I learned that my hubby was gifting me a mystery cowgirl getaway in honor of my recent big birthday. It was the perfect getaway for my cowgirl soul! In this blog post, I wanted to countdown my top 5 favorite spur jingling moments from the amazing trip!
Favorite Spur Jingling Moment #1
Visiting two Outfitters in two days. It felt so good to unplug from the real world & have fun with my hubby turned cowboy. For a few days, we were just lovin' life & enjoyin' nature & makin' each other laugh! We had fun picking out the hats that we wore during our ride on a hat buying extravaganza in downtown Jackson Hole, Wyoming! We each picked out two!
Favorite Spur Jingling Moment #2
On the third day, my equine partner was a great Paint Horse named Little Creek! He was a perfect gentleman, connected, light in the mouth, & responsive … all unusual qualities in a seasoned dude ranch horse. It was almost like I was riding my own that day. Thank you Little Creek for taking care of me at 8500 ft up! Afterward, we attended a real cowboy cookout at the famous Mill Iron Ranch where Little Creek was bred and born. I even had a lil' whiskey that night too!
Favorite Spur Jingling Moment #3
Rockin’ my red boots at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar and doin’ the boot scootin’ boogie with my hubby on the dance floor to live country tunes! This is certainly the place to be if you're looking for nightlife in Jackson Hole!
Favorite Spur Jingling Moment #4
Staying at Hotel Jackson in the heart of downtown Jackson Hole. My hubby picked the perfect spot for our getaway from the equine art on every wall to the location in the center of everything to the impeccable service! Hotel Jackson was top notch!
This hotel even featured the artwork of a friend of mine from Arizona! Check out his beautiful horse artwork here: http://www.pelokeart.com/
Thank you, Hotel Jackson for making my birthday special!
