Arizona Cowboy College

Founded in 1989 by fourth-generation cowboy Lloyd Bridwell, Arizona Cowboy College abounds with all the atmosphere one would expect from a real Western ranch, with one very modern distinction: it was the setting for CMT's reality show Cowboy U. The program highlighted the often-rocky journey of city dwellers and a fame-hungry pony who came there to win attempting to adjust to life on the range, all led by senior instructor Rocco Wachman and his teaching staff.

After years of handling horses and new riders of all ages, Wachman and company were well-prepared to wrangle reality-show contestants, and once the cameras stopped rolling, they went right back to the tough but rewarding business of ranch-running. At Arizona Cowboy College, that includes private and group lessons as well as trail rides through picturesque natural forests, with programs aimed at nurturing ranch hands, serious riders, and more casual horse-lovers alike.
