Top 10 Reasons Everyone Should Plan a Guest Ranch or Dude Ranch Vacation

Often used synonymously, "guest ranch" and "dude ranch.” Why are these two terms similar and why, in today’s marketplace, are they so very different?... Well, ranches who accepted outside guests, started as "dude ranches" - they were dirty, dusty, a slice of the old west - the experience was centered only around horses and rodeos  - the food was a chuckwagon BBQ served under the stars - you stayed in an accommodation referred to as rustic, but really it was simple, basic, no frills. Today, luxury has had an influence on certain ranches to include culinary journeys, immersive experiential offerings, fine accommodations, spa offerings, world-class guest amenities and the first-class service you would expect when purchasing a luxury experience. This, ladies and gentleman, is a "guest ranch” that still pays tribute to the old west, but with the refinements today’s traveler expects and today’s travel trends dictate. Since 1980, [...]

Remembering Stephen Stranahan

Stephen Stranahan 1934-2019 When Steve and Ann Stranahan first came to Clark they found an unspoiled alpine ranching community a short distance, yet a world away, from Steamboat Springs. It was a three-wire winter and that first encounter with the land that would become the Home Ranch is memorably described in Ann's poem, Inspecting the Property ...We skimmed white meadows that might grow our hay, flew over fences that would keep the cows out, slid down the creek to consider the trout, caught in a wide net of ice. Over 41 years not too much has changed. Those skimmed white meadows became the Home Ranch, of course. The road into Clark is a little better, and for that, the distance to town may seem a little shorter. Yet, for many of us, the noisiness of a world outside of Clark reliably begins to quiet on the drive up from town. [...]

Clint Weaver Returns to The Home Ranch

We are excited to welcome accomplished horseman Clint Weaver and his family back to The Home Ranch June 23 - 30, 2019. This is an opportunity to join us to facilitate a week of fun learning with horses. Time spent focusing on fundamentals will be balanced with plenty of trail riding, cow working and exploring, as we apply what we have learned. Clint enjoys working with diverse groups, with a wide range of riding abilities, and approaches each horse and rider as an individual with their own needs and abilities. Clint is originally from Mississippi, but found his way out West and for the last two decades has developed his passion with horses. “Clint believes the best way to advance one’s horsemanship is to slow down and focus on the foundation. He has learned to break down “the pieces” of horsemanship, work on them separately, then weave them back together. His [...]

Spring in to Riding Season

In late March it can be hard to tell if it is Spring or Winter above 7,000 feet. Luckily our indoor arena allows us to ignore the elements as needed, so we can prepare our horses for the coming season. There are abundant opportunities for learning and Hands on Horsemanship for both experienced and aspiring horse people, as we work with young horses and help our more seasoned horses readjust from their winter rest to spring on the ranch. Mix in more typical snow activities of skiing, snow shoeing and sledding for a truly unique springtime experience. Join our wranglers March 20 - 25 as they begin to warm up our horses and freshen up their horsemanship skills after a relaxing winter. Rates for this week start at $765 for a lodge room and $945 for a cabin per night for double occupancy. Single occupancy rates are available. Your rate [...]
