Rough Stock Winter Round Up
Well River, Vermont
This famous sex role play event, held several times a year, requires all guests to declare themselves as Mares (bottoms), Stallions (versatile), or Cowboys (tops) and you may not change roles. Mares will be blindfolded all weekend and strapped in the stalls. During the day, Mares will be spread out throughout the lodge, available for riding by Stallions and cowboys on demand. Stallions will be expected to provide riding services, too, throughout the weekend. Cowboys must wear cowboys hats and can rope and mount Stallions and Mares, or both at the same time. Mares never see the Stallions or Cowboys all weekend.
