Colorado Dude Ranch Vacations


Time To Ride!

Meet Your Horse & Wrangler

After a delicious home-cooked breakfast and coffee to start the day, it’s time to meet your wrangler and head on down to the corral to get paired with your horse and take a short ride.

If you like slow riding, we have slow horses. If you like fast riding, we have fast horses.  If you have never ridden a horse we have horses that have never been ridden. Jokes aside we have over 150 horses on the ranch and our staff will try to match your comfort and ability with a fantastic horse. If it isn’t a match you can always switch out on the next ride.

Find The Perfect Horse

With over 150 horses on the ranch finding the perfect match is 100% doable! 

Hit The Trails

It's your vacation!  Ride when you want and as often as you want.  Or relax...

We Mean It

If you want to kick your feet up and relax, no problem!

Take It All In

Lunch is served outside to enjoy the cool mountain air, then off for another great ride. We don’t have set plans for your week, it is really your vacation. Want to learn something in the corral? Want to do a steep trails ride? Want to lope (gallop)? Just ask! Nothing beats spending the day in the saddle! Head back to the ranch to watch the horses stampede by on their way to pasture while enjoying a drink at the saloon. A beer after a day of riding never tasted so good!

End your day in the hot tub reading about the history of the area. Soak your feet and unwind with breathtaking views after a wonderful ranch-style dinner.
