The Horseback Riding Experience at The Home Ranch

In a single day's ride you may 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 the cattle on the historic Murphy-Larsen Ranch. When you return back to The Home Ranch, we promise you will be pampered and well taken care of as if you were part of our extended family. You can expect delicious and inspired meals throughout the day, beautiful mountain sunsets, roaring campfires, impromptu performances 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 make the most of 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.
