“genuine cabins & Indian tipis”

Capture the spirit of the the American West in a genuine Pine Cabin or authentic Indian tipi. Experience the centuries of traditions of the American Cowboy as you step back in time on a guided horseback ride. Board an authentic horse drawn. In the late 1800s Wellington Starky started a cattle ranch and called it Diamond Bar Ranch. In 1904 at the age of 41 a notorious gunfighter and cattle rancher called Tap Duncan bought the ranch to escape from his previous... “profession.” It is believed Tap rode with Kid Curry and the hole in the wall gang.Tap Duncan became one of the most well-known and widely respected pioneer cattlemen running over 2,000 head of cattle on over a million acres. His other ventures included involvement in the aforementioned King Tut Gold Mine. He was eventually killed at the ripe age of age of 74, ironically, run over by a car in Kingman, Arizona.From 1915 onwards an unknown cowboy called Bruce Kiskaddon worked for Tap. He wrote about the ranch and in doing so started cowboy poetry. In 1915 cowboy poets were not popular but he was encouraged by Tap. The Los Angeles Times published his works for 30 years. “Rhymes and Ranches” published in 1947 is about Tap and Diamond Bar Ranch. Bruce became one of the most famous Cowboy Poets.
