R & G HORSE AND WAGON
Along with professional wrangling for movies and other productions, R&G Horse and Wagon offers exclusive horseback rides on historic Antelope Island; a 28,000 acre island preserve in the Great Salt Lake.
The island itself, now a part of the Utah State Parks System, was once under private ownership and includes the Fielding Garr Ranch.
Horseback rides originate from the Fielding Garr Ranch and are led by experienced wranglers that are intimately familiar with the island, its rich history and abundant wildlife.
Some of the wildlife includes: Mule Deer, Antelope, American Bison, Bighorn Sheep, coyotes and innumerable birds. Wildflowers and several geological features can also be seen on these rides.

BIOGRAPHY: RON & GINGER BROWN
Following graduation from Utah State University, Ron and Ginger Brown began their careers as educators in the Weber County school system and performed for several years during the off-season with a Roman-Riding act in a wild-west show located in New Jersey along with other appearances in numerous rodeos throughout the country.
Due to a demanding travel schedule, the decision was made to focus on raising their family and so they settled on home life in Utah, establishing R&G Horse and Wagon, which includes the exclusive horseback riding concession on Antelope Island.
Together with their sons; Ryan, Mike and Lonnie, they have also ‘wrangled’ horses and appeared in over 80 productions including many major motion pictures such as: “Far and Away”, “Return to Lonesome Dove”, “Maverick”, several “PBS Specials”, numerous “Hallmark” and L.D.S. Church movies.
Ron Brown passed away in 2015 following a valiant battle with cancer.
