Horseback Riding Adventures at the Colorado Guest Ranch
At the Elk River Guest Ranch, we want you to have a truly memorable horseback riding experience. That's why, as part of our horseback riding program, we require a horseback orientation before your first ride with us (don't worry, we aren't here to bore you by making you sit through a lecture). Instead, we teach and refresh before your ride so that your experience is comfortable, safe and full of adventure.
The beauty of it all? Our horseback rides cater to numbers of 1-5 people. That means, you get an intimate, personalized experience.
Just north of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, our horseback rides (morning and afternoon) lead you into the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest with gorgeous views of Big Agnes and Little Agnes, two of the most stunning peaks within the Zirkel Mountains. We have it all. Sweeping views, quaking aspens, a mountain lake, huge pines, open meadows, singletrack and old logging roads.
Weight limit: We have a 250lb horseback riding weight limit. This guideline exists for the health and safety of our horses and riders, therefore we cannot always guarantee a horse will be available for heavy riders. If a horse is available within our herd, we may restrict riders to level terrain and/or walking-only rides based on the rider’s weight and riding ability.
