We will be excited to visit with Best Horse Practices Summit attendees as they travel from near and far to join us at this inaugural conference!
A few important notes:
It’s mid-fall in southwestern Colorado. That means temperatures may be in the 60’s, but will likely dip into the 20’s-30’s. Bring layers and be prepared for chilly mornings and evenings. Our extended forecast is calling for some scattered thunderstorms, but mostly sunny with highs in the 60’s during the day.
Don’t forget: we’re in the mountains. Events are at about 6,800 feet. If you’re coming from sea level, try to take it easy for the first day, to give your body a chance to adjust. Some folks do fine. Others feel a bit tired and/or nauseous.
In town early?
Check out the Saturday morning Chuck Wagon Breakfast followed by the best motor-less parade ever, the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering parade.
There’s also a roping competition going on just outside of town.
Scratching your head on dining options?
Mediterranean fare, on 2nd Avenue
Great burritos and yummy southwestern chowder, on Main
Steaks and whiskeys (a tad pricey), on College Drive
Pizza and bistro food, on Main
Delicious craft beers and local produce, on Main
Who doesn’t need good coffee? Both are on Main
There will be a horse-y display at another Durango favorite on Main: Maria’s Bookshop. Stop in to browse the local selections.
Wherever you go, please let them know you’re here for the Best Horse Practices Summit!
