Butt sore? Knees hurt?  Try one of our other activities ...
While the main focus of our ranch is horseback riding and guests usually ride up to 10 hours a day participating in all the horseback activities and the daily cattle work, we do have a few other activities available.
Swim in the indoor heated pool or soak in the sauna to relax those sore muscles. The saloon area is popular during happy hour and after dinner for relaxing, having a drink and talking with other guests.
There is fishing in the stocked pond for rainbow trout. We prefer catch and release unless you have checked to see if anyone is hungry for fish! Please bring your own fishing gear.
Artifact and arrowhead hunting is a very popular activity with many wonderful finds each year. Every era of artifact has been discovered on this ranch - dinosaur bones, tools and weapons from early man to the most recent Indian inhabitants, the Pawnee, Cheyenne and Araphahoe among others.
Bird watching is also popular since this area is somewhat famous for raptors. Eagles, hawks, and falcons abound as well as other smaller species. Hiking is great, lots of space and varying terrain from steep canyons to flat rolling prairie.
There is a horseshoe pit, a roping practice area and cowboy bocce.
Periodically throughout the guest season there are horse sales, shows and clinics nearby for guests who enjoy this type of activity.
Guests who choose to often travel off the ranch to many different activities. Go to "The Sundance" a great western saloon for a taste of local western flavor. They have live music on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights, occasional Bull Riding competitions behind the saloon on Friday and Saturday evenings, free dance lessons on Wednesday nights, great food and wonderful atmosphere.
Guests also enjoy weekly friday night rodeos in June, July and early August. Cheyenne Frontier Days is usually the last week in July, Grover PRCA rodeo is mid June, and the 4th of July rodeos are great fun. There is also a weekly rodeo every Friday night from the second week in June to the second week in August at nearby Pine Bluffs Wyoming.
Whitewater Rafting is available in season (June, July and early August) at an additional charge for those who crave wet and wild adventure! The Cache La Poudre provides great class II, III and IV rapids. There are several different outfitters - all seasoned professionals who ensure the highest level of safety with excellent equipment, instruction and guides. Pricing varies from outfitter to outfitter as do the runs, from full day runs which break for lunch and cover the entire rafting area of the beautiful Cache La Poudre river (Colorado's only designated "Wild and Scenic" river) to half day morning or afternoon runs, from class IV rapids to float trips these outfitters offer something that will suit your needs.

Transportation to and from off ranch activities is not available or included.
