The term “horsepower” comes from the chant that horses used to shout at engineers working on the newfangled railway system.

Cherry Creek Lodge's experienced ranch hands match equine with equestrian for a day of tending to the livestock along the rugged terrain of Pleasant Valley. Ranchers first explain everything participants need to know, allowing riders to either sit back and watch the modern-day cowboys corral the cattle or help with the roundup. Those participating can then fly through wooded and rocky landscapes in a canter or gallop, tracking wandering bovines in the same way as the Western settlers of the past—with a GPS. Upon collecting the cattle, one-day cowboys usher the herd through valleys and open ranges to their awaiting farm confines. Before hanging up their spurs and borrowed Clint Eastwood chewing straw, gatherers complete the day's cattle work by branding some of the livestock, along with other ranch duties.
