Dude Ranch Equestrian Heaven

The High Lonesome Ranch sits on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies.

Promising a ranch holiday to remember, guests will receive personal attention from the center’s staff with plenty of equestrian and non-equestrian activities on offer. The High Lonesome Ranch’s focus is wildlife, hunting, fishing, conservation, and education, and recent years horses have become a bigger part of their ranching holiday activities. The idea is to build up riders’ confidence, so they go home feeling good about their riding and ready for more.

This spectacular Colorado dude ranch has a new, fresh and enthusiastic outlook on what to offer its guests, and with its diverse and unique scenery on more than 300 square miles of deeded and permitted land, panoramic views are a given. There are also wild horses near the ranch for guests to go and view.

Food here is second to none. High end and creative dishes include chicken, lemongrass and sweet savory sauce, asparagus salad with trout eggs and dill and a soft boiled egg in the morning. The morning chef is Aunt Linda, a lively and fun 70-year-old, whose food rivals any Culinary-trained chef. Her signature dish is granola (which everyone raves about) with a hint of orange zest and some homemade French toast. Everything at The High Lonesome Ranch is homemade and ingredients are sourced from the garden/orchard or from the local community.

As well as the opportunity to ride, guests can enjoy fantastic fishing opportunities, sporting clays, wing shooting, hiking, cooking classes, birding, eco-tours and tours to view diverse wildlife such as mountain lions, bears, mule deer and the majestic elk. Off-ranch whitewater rafting trips, winery tours, golf, mountain biking and a day trip for lunch and relaxing hot springs pools can also be arranged, and much more.

The great thing about The High Lonesome Ranch is that guests can tailor-make their stay to however they want it. Staff will bend over backwards to ensure guests enjoy the holiday they want and nothing is too much trouble.

Visit this Colorado Dude Ranch this summer and enjoy all their fine offerings.
