Roundup Riders of the Rockies was established in 1947 as a private riding club. Today the Roundup Riders (3R) organization is dedicated to the perpetuation of the Western Tradition associated with the relationship between the American Cowboy and his horse. The diverse group includes ranchers, farmers, businessmen, physicians, law enforcement officers, retired members of the United States Forest Service, attorneys, university professors, veterinarians, retired military, and other professionals.
The group holds an annual, week long horseback ride in the Colorado Rockies emphasizing horsemanship and horsemastership in an environment of sportsmanship and camaraderie.
