Win a Trip to Mystery, Montana

Fictional home of the very real Dunrovin Ranch,

Setting of a new series of mystery romance novels

by Danica Winters

Winners will be drawn during the Horse of a Different Color Event at Dunrovin Ranch August 19, 2017.

Celebrating the Human Horse Bond Through Art

Human’s current relationship with horses can truly be called a “horse of a different color.” As John Trotwood Moore famously stated : “Wherever man has left his foot prints in the long ascent from barbarism to civilization, we find the hoof print of a horse beside it.” In recent years, the nature and placement of those hoof prints have changed – changed in unexpected ways. Rather than simply carrying our physical burdens, horses now ease our emotional pains; in addition to lifting our feet off the ground, horses buoy our spirits and fill our hearts with joy; rather than their being servants to us as masters, horses have become our teachers.

Dunrovin Ranch honors this ever changing bond between horse and human through a series of special events: Horse of a Different Color is an artistic extravaganza on August 19 that brings artists together with Dunrovin’s horses to literally create “horses of different colors” by using horses as their canvas and to celebrate horses as a writer’s muse. Best selling Harlequin author Danica Winters will unveil her series of books set among the Dunrovin Ranch herd and draw the name of a lucky winner to come with a companion to Dunrovin Ranch’s September Spirit Dance Women’s Retreat to let the power of horses ignite personal passions to live life with greater meaning and purpose.

Come enjoy wine, appetizers, and art from 3pm - 6pm. Six artists will be painting six horses with a very important mission on their minds. This unique event will allow you to take part in accessing Dunrovin Ranch’s and DaysAtDunrovin’s resources to promote human, animal, environmental, and community health. Funds raised will be specifically used for grants to support Montana nonprofits that provide equine assisted physical, emotional, or mental wellness or therapy programs. The fully catered dinner, entertainment, and a Painted Horse Parade will begin at 6PM. Dinner by Caffé Firenze ~ Music by Charla Bauman ~ $100 per Person.

Danica Winters will be attending

Join special guest, Montana writer, Danica Winters, author of a series of new romantic suspense novels set at Dunrovin Ranch. Witness the place that inspired Danica's writings, and take part in this important cause with Danica herself, August 19th during Horse of a Different Color.
