Riding Level

We can accommodate a variety of riding levels and cater the itinerary to your preferences. If you are new to the saddle, our wranglers provide solid instruction to start your horse journey off in the right direction! For those more experienced we have more challenging rides and cattle work to keep you fast on your feet. Horseback activities can include working and moving cattle, exploring the surrounding San Luis Valley, and venturing into the adjacent Great Sand Dunes National Park. Formal instruction and horsemanship demonstrations from our expert wranglers are available at any point during your stay.

Guest rides are from about 8:30am - 2:00pm, though can be shorter if guests would like. Riding groups are kept small: 3 to 4 riders per wrangler.

The horses we use in our daily ranch work and guest program come from our breeding program.  The program focuses on producing gentle horses that can work long days on a ranch and thrive on native pasture with minimal supplemental feed. Specifically, our horses are bred for a gentle disposition, athleticism, hardiness, and livestock sense. We also train horses that come from outside of the program that show promising disposition for daily ranch work and meeting the needs of guest riders. The herd, averaging around 60 head, meet all abilities ranging from experienced to beginner riders. We work closely with each horse to train them for working livestock. During the guest season the herd is split into two groups with one group resting and the other group in a nearby pasture ready for daily work. The groups are then frequently rotated giving the horses plenty of rest and time under saddle so they ultimately remain in peak and healthy condition.

Horses are the core to a good ranch program. Therefore, we work with our horses every day and we encourage guests to be involved by learning about how to improve or maintain their horse. The crew will work with the guests so they will be continually learning and working to improve their skills with a horse. Guests are welcome to watch the ranch crew train a young horse or participate in one-on-one horsemanship instruction. These options are typically half day options in the afternoon.
