Itinerary for Big Thompson River Ranch




We offer group lessons each morning, followed by trail riding in the afternoon. Your package also includes cattle sorting activities for ages 12 and up.  

Overnight Pack Trip (ages 12 and older)    
Sometimes, we can arrange an overnight pack trip to the back country. Ride up to a higher elevation, where you’ll be greeted at Cow Camp by the smell of our delectable Beef Steaks cooking over the grill. Spend the night under the stars after singing around a campfire with s’mores. A perfect way to get back to nature!

Kid's Program (3-12 years old)
Our daily youth program gives ages 3-12 a real bonding experience with their horse: ranch chores, horse care, trail riding, horsemanship lessons. Safety requires that children must be 7 years and older to go out on the trail. Children 6 and under will enjoy lead-around-rides in the arena and a variety of outside adventures.
Experiential learning activities in the afternoon can be enjoyed as a family or under the guidance of a qualified youth counselor.
Childcare is available for the younger crowd upon request (inquire for rate).
