We are certified through the Dude Ranchers’ Association Horse Safety Program. We also belong to the American Quarter Horse Association as well as the Colorado Dude and Guest Ranch Association.
All riding adventures will be accompanied by a Ranch wrangler. Our wranglers are friendly horse professionals who delight in sharing their knowledge with you. They will provide what you need for a safe and enjoyable horseback riding experience, and their knowledge of the history, wildlife, and vegetation will expand your appreciation and enhance your ride.

Riding Groups
We try to keep our riding groups small with usually 6 or 7 riders max per group. One wrangler can take up to 7 riders at a time.
The breakfast ride and overnight pack trips can sometime have larger groups with some extra wranglers.

Unlike most recreational riding facilities, the majority of our horses (mainly Quarter horses with a few Paints) are born, raised, and trained on-Ranch. We’ve had registered horses with the American Quarter Horse Association every year for over 50 years. We have about 35-40 guest horses and every spring we welcome new foals into the herd. They learn the ropes under the gentle hand of our professional horse trainer.
