Daniel Boone Days & The Gathering
This is a perfect adventure for you or your horse if either of you have little to no experience around cattle. Its also perfect for those who do have experience.
Friday at 2:00 pm we meet in the arena then head out to gather the Team Penning herd and drive them back to the arena to get ready for Team Penning (weather permitting). Then at 5pm we have a nice country meal around the dining room table in our 1758 colonial home, just like at grandma's. After dinner, you can take a chair and watch Team Penning or you can sign-up for a few runs as a courtesy (no team penning experience needed). Or spend the evening fishing in our stocked pond or the river (catch and release).
Saturday around 8 am, coffee is available on the porch. At 8:30 we have a country style breakfast around the table. Then we saddle up and head out to drive cattle. We take a lunch break around 12 pm, and meet for lunch which will be hosted under the old walnut trees in the yard. During the day, we will be celebrating "Daniel Boone Days" with the public welcome to come out to experience the history.
Daniel Boone lived about 1 mile away in Stevensburg with his family during the Cherokee Indian Wars. While he was living here, he worked the tobacco fields on what is now present-day Andora Farm. We celebrate colonial history with wagon rides out to the living-history Mountain Man encampment and Native American historian as well as colonial crafters such as colonial blacksmith, quilters, spinners and weavers, candle making, soap making, pottery and more. The public is also welcome to come out and enjoy the Colonial celebration.
Dinner will be at 6 pm under the old walnut trees with special historical guest speaker.
There are no refunds but can transfer any balance to be used on another ride up to one year. Stalls are extra. There is no charge for camping.
