Washington, CT - An eight member Devereux Glenholme group, comprised of two staff and six students, journeyed to Jackson Hole, Wyoming in early July for a 7-day, 6-night adventure at the Heart Six Guest Ranch to complement the school’s equestrian program.

Heather Perssonatti, Glenholme’s Equestrian Program Coordinator and Leigh Cushing accompanied the six student-ranchers for the western adventure filled with exciting activities from dawn to dusk, including trail riding, swimming & hot tub, shopping in downtown Jackson Hole, attending Jackson Hole’s weekly rodeo, chase cattle on horseback, cookouts, campfires, a scenic water float trip along the Grand Tetons, and square dancing.

An adventure to Yellowstone National Park to see the hot springs, the Yellowstone portion of the Grand Canyon, and abundance of wildlife including a couple of Grizzly bears. The Heart Six Ranch Guide, Miles, also took the group on a 10-mile trail ride into the heart of the wilderness, where they tied the horses up to trees and fished on a wild river. Will caught a 16" Cut Throat Trout and Miles remarked that it was one of the biggest fish he witnessed being caught.

On their last day, everyone participated in the ranch’s version of a rodeo complete with barrel racing and pole bending. Glenholme students placed 3rd in Barrels, 2nd in Pole Bending and 3rd in Poles along with honors of Most Determined, Rodeo Prince and Rodeo King. Congratulations to the rodeo riders and happy trails.
