For over 30 years, the Home Ranch has welcomed equestrian travelers of all ages and skill levels to enjoy all inclusive equestrian vacations at one of the best dude ranches in Colorado. Treasured by horseback riding enthusiasts for our excellent horses, supportive wranglers, breathtaking scenery, and genuine hospitality, our luxury dude ranch welcomes everyone who wants an opportunity to ride amid the timeless beauty of the Elk River Valley.
Whether you have been riding all of your life, or you have always wanted to ride, we believe that equestrian vacations at The Home Ranch may be one of the most memorable Colorado vacations you could imagine. With a million acres of Rocky Mountain Wilderness at our doorstep, a herd of 100 horses in our meadows, and helpful wranglers to bring out your best riding, we give you access to an enchanted Western experience that makes you feel like you're in Cowboy heaven.
In a single day's ride you might find yourself climbing a mountain to take in expansive views of the Elk River Valley, loping through a high-country meadow beside the Continental divide, meandering through shimmering aspen groves alongside the Elk River, or working cattle on the historic Murphy-Larsen Ranch. When you return home to the ranch, we promise you will be pampered and taken care of as if you were part of our extended family. You can expect exquisite meals throughout the day, purple mountain sunsets, roaring campfires, impromptu concerts, and nightly showings of the Great Milky Way. No matter what kind of horseback riding adventure your heart desires, or what your level of experience may be, we make it a point to help you fully enjoy your time here. We know that you will have an abundance of unforgettable memories to carry home, and the positive glow of how it feels to better understand horses, and through them, perhaps even yourself.
"Cattle work, trail rides, horsemanship clinics, great meals, and comfortable cabins in the Colorado Mountains- Horseback riding vacations don't get any better than this."
For our summer vacation season, roughly mid June through the end of August, the main activity that draws people to our Colorado dude ranch is our widely-respected and varied horseback riding program. We are an excellent destination for family vacations with a wide variety of adventures and fun for kids and teens. For our non riders, or for those days that you don't want to ride, The Home Ranch offers a host of multi-sport activities that make our Colorado dude ranch a perfect home base for all kinds of adventure travel options.
