The Story of Amos

Cory Inouye Ranch News Leave a Comment

Being on the back deck of the lodge early morning with a warm cup of coffee is breathtaking. I can’t help but to enjoy the peace and silence. The morning cup of joe taking in the views of the ranch has been done for decades. Looking through the old records you’ll find lists of names on census reports, deeds, and old homestead documents of people who have lived here before. There’s only a few records of an old man by the name of Amos Vaughn from Iowa. He lived at Red Horse Mountain Ranch in the early 1900’s but only …

For the applicant, there are some tips you could try to help land that …

Hooked on Fishing with Kids

Being on a dude ranch isn’t just about horses. Wranglers work hard and you definitely need to have some experience to work with 100 plus horses. You need to work smart too. Being cautious of the occasional kick or ornery personality is part of the job. But that’s not the only job on the ranch with dangers. Teaching kids how to fish for bass and northern pike with a 2/0 sized hook and 3/8 ounce weights in the tight confinements of a boat can get interesting fast. For those of you not familiar with the treachery here, it’s sort of …

Family reunion planning can be tricky. Just picking a reunion destination spot can take time. I myself come from a large family and we’re lucky to have several amazing planners who handle our family reunions. Planning can be stressful and trying to find a perfect location which everyone will enjoy is a daunting task. Working at Red Horse Mountain Ranch for over a decade, I’ve come to know many of the challenges with family reunion planning.

A Winter Day at Red Horse Mountain Ranch

Cory Inouye Ranch News 1 Comment

We’re always asked, “what goes on during the winter at the ranch?” Besides our repairs, projects, and new improvements, one of our most important items is caring for the 100+ animals living on the ranch. Go along with Kyle and Claire as they feed 1800 – 2000 lbs of hay to our 90 horses. Oh, and we’re thankful for all the hard work they did this winter taking care of our herd.

Chasing a record fish

Cory Inouye Ranch News

I come from the world of fly fishing for trout; fish the “Ranch” on the Henry’s Fork of the Snake above Ashton, Idaho and you’ll quickly learn what it means to have a Phd in fly fishing. I’ve heard stories of trout circling an angler’s fly, waiting for the currents to take it under, only to see whether the offering is real or fake. I rarely pursued the trout on the “Ranch,” but the hunt always intrigued me. My time was more spent chasing trout through runs, riffles, and rapids from a drift boat. Box Canyon, Lower Mesa, and the …
