Before dinner, a classic John Deere tractor pulls riders in wagons around the Ranch and everyone has fun trying their hand at roping, pitching horseshoes and target shooting with a real Colt .45 six-shooter. When the dinner bell rings it’s time to feast on Arizona style chicken and ribs, and the Blazin’ M Cowboys will entertain with their award-winning musical talents mixed with cowboy poetry and humor.
