Saddle Up for a Horseback Riding Vacation
If you’ve ever dreamed of being a cowboy – or cowgirl, Colorado Trails Guest Ranch is the place for you. We offer the most exciting western dude ranch experience you’ll find anywhere. Our staff will show you the ropes if you’re a greenhorn, and an experienced wrangler will have the best riding adventure imaginable.
You’ll have your choice of nearly 80 horses, and we’ll help match you with the perfect horse according to your size, experience level, and personality, which is very important! Your riding experience will be customized to your needs and desires so that you have the best vacation imaginable. Our rides will only take on a maximum of 6 riders per guide in order to give each cowpoke the most personalized attention and instruction.
We offer a wide array of riding options for our guests. If you’re just interested in having a taste of the western dude ranch riding experience, one of our partial-day options will be best for you. We offer morning and afternoon rides that last 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours. Our half day rides will last for 3 to 4 hours, and on one you’ll enjoy an unforgettable Chuck wagon lunch. If you’d rather ride for a full day of 6 to 8 hours, you’ll be packing your grub and eating on the trail. If you want to make it a family affair, you and your kin will have a breakfast ride followed by family rides. For those who are a little more adventurous, our popular “Corral Capers” is a day of horseback arena games.
If you’re ready to feel like a real buckaroo, you will definitely want to try one of the most loved morning activities on our dude ranch – the phenomenal Longhorn cattle drive adventure. At a cost of $35 per rider, this experience is one that you can’t refuse. You’ll mosey on down to a nearby ranch, pack up your gear, climb on your horse, and head out on the trail. Your trail boss will take you through the motions of rounding up the cattle and steering them through the range to their ultimate destination. Our cattle drive excursion is one of the most memorable experiences a person can embark upon.
You don’t have to worry about your children while you’re on your horseback riding vacation. There is a fantastic program for kids and teens, as well. The Buckaroos ages are 5 to 8 years, the Rough Riders ages are 9 to 12 years, and the Teens are 13 to 17 years. Each group offers specialized activities and instruction geared towards age and skill level. Horseback riding and horseback games in the riding area are the most popular activities kids and teens participate in, but there are so many other pursuits available that there is no way for them to be bored!
Whether you’re a beginner or expert, adult or child, a vacation at the Colorado Trails Guest Ranch is something everyone can enjoy. Contact us today to schedule the most unsurpassed adventure you’ll ever experience!
