We invite you to visit us, the Georges and Yosts, at Latigo Ranch! Having owned the ranch for 28 years and raising our families here, we possess a true passion for this lifestyle. We are very hands-on owners, participating in the activities, doing the cooking, teaching horsemanship or flyfishing and getting to know our guests personally. We love what we do and where we are; sharing this with you is our passion.

The moment you arrive you begin to realize why Latigo was selected by Colorado’s Best as “Colorado’s Best Dude Ranch”. Weekly, without exception, Latigo guests ask us where we get such respectful and incredible staff.

Each guest raves about the quality of our horses and the thoroughness of our horse program. Whether in the arena or on the trail we place emphasis on improving your riding skills.

There are so many interesting things to learn and we enjoy sharing information with you about all of it - vegetaion, wildlife, geology and history, your horse, riding, archaeology and more. You'll find that the real reason, however, people come back each year is the opportunity to be together as a family.We enjoy serving people and want to make sure you have the vacation of a lifetime. Our goal is to develop friendships, not just customers.

  • Conservation

  • We take out an overnight pack trip each week and educate our guests regarding using the forest (eg. it is our practice once we take people to an overnight location not to use it again for a year or two and to leave the camping spot so that no one could tell 30 people had been there).

Cattle work - pasture gathers

  • When

    Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
  • Frequency

  • No. of cow/calf pairs

  • Interaction

    Guests participate
  • In september we spend a week helping our neighbors gather hundreds of cattle from the summer pastures, moving them down to winter holdings. We limit the number of guests helping at this to 14, and they must be experienced riders capable of riding independently. A couple times a week, guests have the opportunity to interact with cattle in the pasture by moving them to different pastures, riding herd to perform health checks, do a count, and, if there are any seen problems, we bring the animal into the corral for doctoring. Friday morning, guests who are interested head out to the pasture and sort the cattle in the pasture. Guests and wranglers hold herd while individually, each guest has the opportunity to sort a designated animal out of the herd, practicing his/her skills in maneuvering and controlling the horse.

Pack Trips

  • Details

    part of ranch experience, overnight trips, day trips, remote
  • Extras

    Each Wednesday morning Jim Yost leads guests by horseback into the mountains for an overnight pack trip. We head out at 9am and travel into the mountains on a scenic ride, with lunch on the trail, to our overnight camping spot where we arrive late in the afternoon. Upon arrival, each family or individual sets up his or her own tent. We have 30 different sites in which we rotate through, so guests rarely stay at the same site twice(except for those who have been coming for years!). Jim personally prepares a tantalizing dinner for each of the guests. And, believe us, if you've ever eaten a meal in the wilderness, something about preparing it outdoors makes it one of the best, most memorable meals you could eat. Horse are kept in an overnight portable, electric solar powered fence. Out of respect for the land, when we leave, our goal is to leave minimal impact on the land. Even to the point that Jim replaces the sod from his firepit to restore to its exact previous condition. Guests enjoy breakfast of scrambled eggs or omelette, sausage, pancakes, or hashbrowns with steak. We head back out on the trail for home and make sure we're home for homemade pizza hand-created in our Latigo kitchen by Randy and Lisa George! We provide everything: sleeping bags, pillows, foam pads, flashlights. Guests only need to worry about bringing a coat(we supply rain coats) and a change of socks. We also offer a pack trip for the wee ones age 6-8. For this overnighter kids enjoy staying in camps already set up with permanent teepees. Depending upon the age and attention span of the children, we generally leave after lunch and get to camp by 4 or 5.

Arena Work

  • Type

    outdoor arena, professional rodeo arena
  • Activities

    penning, sorting, cutting
  • Once we are done sorting the animals(from our Friday ride in the pasture - please see "cattle work"), we gather a number of the cattle and drive them into the arena. In the afternoon, we work these cattle in the arena and do some team penning.

Horsemanship Clinic

  • Clinician

    Jim Yost
  • Details

    Clinics occur weekly, Included in package, Clinics occur in the arena
  • Focuses on

    Sunday night's orientation talks about the basics of horsemanship. Then on Monday morning Jim offers a horsemanship clinic in which guests can participate. Depending upon the week, Jim may be working with a young horse, tuning up a guest horse, or even working a mustang. The clinic generally lasts about an hour long. It covers basic horsemanship, various aspects in regard to horse behavior (as that is key to horsemanship), and how to relate to a horse by understanding its behavior and instincts. Guests are welcome to get directly involved. Jim also covers riding and horsemanship aspects from catching a horse to riding it at a lope. Throughout the week you can work work on various principles learned in the clinic while on the trail. The wranglers are always ready to assist.

Sample Riding Itinerary

  • Our itinerary differs every day but I'll pick Wednesday!

    Those going on the overnight pack trip make a sack lunch and leave the ranch by 10am.

    Those not going on the pack trip have an all day ride option and leave at 9:15am while the regular morning and afternoon riders go out at 9am and 2pm as usual. 

    Before and after rides, it is not unusual to see people fishing or swimming.

    In the evening we teach cowboy skills like roping, bull whip use and tomahawk throwing.


  • Private Land - 250-1000 (acres)

  • We have 550 acres of private beauty and are located at 9000 feet surrounded by vast spruce forests, sprawling aspen groves, sagebrush, lush high meadows and crystalline streams and beaver ponds. With plenty of diversity in our landscape, we provide a perfect location for photography tours, weddings, riding, and just in soaking in the natural beauty. We are surrounded by National Forest on three sides and bordered by a cliff and waterfall on the fourth.
  • Public Land - 20,000-40,000 (acres)

  • We have access to over 200 miles of accessible trails within 40,000 acres of the Arapaho National Forest, located in the Rocky Mountains, straddling the continental divide in the Front Range west of Denver. It was established on July 1, 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt and named for the Arapaho tribe of Native Americans which previously inhabited the Colorado Eastern Plains. The forest includes part of the high Rockies and river valleys in the upper watershed of the Colorado River.

We want to provide a healthy variety of top quality food. To that end we make all our own salads and dressings, breads and baked goods and desserts. To ensure your satisfaction, we offer a choice of red or white meat each day.

And, our kitchen has earned a superb reputation. For breakfast, you can select offerings like fruits, berries, baked goods and cereals, or hearty offerings from the grill like pancakes, Belgian waffles, omelets, meats, French toast or the Latigo Vaquero Burrito.

Lunches offer fixin’s for sandwiches with a wide selection of meats and cheeses, soup, pizza, pasta, chicken tenders, fish sticks, or burritos and a generous salad bar. Dinners are the highlight. Bison, pork, poultry and fish often grace the evening menu. Each is accompanied by appealing vegetables, salads and desserts.

Kids have their favorite options available to them. And, even the cookouts will stagger you with plenty of options!

    Randy and Lisa have developed a terrific menu. At breakfast you can expect a full menu to order from which to order or you can enjoy homemade granola, baked goods and yogurt. At lunch, they'll cook up barbecued chicken as well as have a full sandwich and salad bar so you have plenty of options.

    Kids aren't keen on any of the above options? No worries! Randy and Lisa will fine-tune your stay right down to the child's requests - how about good 'ol mac and cheese or Latigo's special peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!

    Randy and Lisa are detail-oriented and take great pride in bringing you the very best.

We also offer shooting skills, roping, bullwhip cracking, tomahawk throwing, archery, golf, swimming, overnight trips, breakfast rides, sunset wagon ride and steak fry, square dancing (that kids always really enjoy once they get over the "dance" idea), fishing (we teach fly fishing), river rafting, cattle roundups and team penning. Your child has a counselor they may ride with or you may wish to do a family ride!

Our counselors take turns enjoying being the children's counselor and teaching them skills.  Almost weekly, several children cry because they have to leave the ranch and "their" horse.

Believe us, children never say, "I'm bored!"

F. J. Kasdorf was the original homesteader of Latigo Ranch as a dude ranch. Kasdorf, his wife Eva, and infant daughter moved to the Kremmling area from Denver by covered wagon in 1923. From this homestead, he and his family moved to a new location a few miles away, where he built up and ran the Snowshoe Dude Ranch for nearly 20 years. Single handedly he built the main log lodge at Snowshoe (now Latigo Ranch).

By 1955 the Colorado Dude and Guest Ranch Association lists the Snowshoe Ranch as having accommodations for 25 guests. Kasdorf boasted that he had a modern log ranch house and lodge with a beautiful two hundred mile view at a rate of $75/week. In 1959 Kasdorf sold the Dude Ranch portion of his holdings west of Kremmling.

The ranch went through the hands of different owners. In 1977 David Wasserstrom from Pennsylvania purchased the ranch. Wasserstrom, an attorney from Philadelphia, made many improvements to the ranch beginning with changing the name to Latigo - "El latigo", a leather strap on a saddle near the cinch.

The present partnership of Randy and Lisa George and Jim and Kathie Yost bought the ranch in 1987. Both families live at the ranch year round and operate Latigo as a nordic center in the winter and dude ranch in the summer. Please contact us for an even more in-depth look into Latigo's history.

    english, spanish
  • Kathie & Jim Yost Kathie and I met in college – I working on my master’s degree in linguistics and doctorate in anthropology and she working on her teacher’s degree. After a short while of teaching at the university level, we felt mission work in the Amazon was calling us. We left for Ecuador's Amazon Basin in 1973 with one daughter of 18 months in tow and our second daughter born in Ecuador. Our son came along a few years later while on a furlough in the US. All three spent their early years in the jungle, learning to fish, hunt, identify plants and animals. They swam and played daily in the river with their Waorani friends with Kathie(being a phenomenal teacher) home-schooling them in our thatch hut. The river was our center of life - we bathed there, fished there, carried our household water from it and just plain enjoyed its moods - from slow, silent foggy days, to growling muddy floods, to crystal-clear gurgling over the rocks in the "dry" season.

    The tribe we lived with had had almost no contact with the outside world. They had the highest rate of homicide (an internal vendetta) ever recorded in the history of man, but were just coming out of that vendetta due to the influence of the teachings of Christ. Many had never seen outsiders prior to our presence, except maybe to kill them. I have made documentary films of the culture, the best-known being one for NOVA "Nomads of the Rainforest", an award-winning one hour documentary. My 40+ publications cover a wide range of topics on the tribe, the most recent and prestigious being in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. I return there every year to help the tribe in whatever they request, whether it be legal and land rights, courses in mechanics or carpentry, assistance in learning how to set up eco-tourism, or other economic projects. Annually, they invite us back for their conferences. Because our oldest daughter speaks the language and her playmates are now the tribal leaders, they convinced her to return with her husband and daughter to help them in various ways.

    As long as I can remember I have had an interest in horses, riding before I entered school age, and getting my first job as a wrangler taking mule and burro trips up Pikes Peak when I was in junior high.  When we bought the ranch in 1987 I knew I was home.  Our three kids were very involved in the ranch operations, and when people asked them how they liked living so isolated, they just laughed.  This is civilization compared to growing up in the Amazon rainforest.

    Randy & Lisa George Randy and I met at the C Lazy U guest ranch in Granby, CO in 1982. He had just been hired as the General Manager, and I was working there during my summers off from Michigan State. Once finished with school, I taught English for a number of years. As a chemical engineer by training, Randy worked at a variety of engineering jobs. Jim and Randy had known each other in graduate school and later worked together at another dude ranch where they decided to join forces in buying Latigo.  Four months after they signed the papers on Latigo, Randy and I  tied-the-knot in 1987. Over the years, my teaching degree came in handy as I home-schooled our children(and now they are all very skilled writers with two of them even writing novels).

    Our work at another guest ranch offered us a good foundation in guest service and a great eye for what makes guest ranch vacations special. Some of our favorite standard recipes are ones that were given to Randy by the head chef upon his leaving to create our own journey at Latigo.

    From day one, Randy has been in charge of the kitchen here, and once our three children were old enough to participate in our ranch program, I joined him in the food preparation. This past summer was extra special for us as two of our kids joined us in the cooking each day. What a thrill to be able to work together full time. Our oldest son, David, is married now and makes his livelihood training horses for clients in Colorado, Michigan, and Illinois. Not only did he become the skilled horseman that he is through his work here at the ranch, but he also met his wonderful wife when she worked in Latigo’s kitchen.

    Although some of the previous training in our lives before Latigo seems non-applicable to the jobs we’re doing now, we joke about the fact that Randy’s chemical engineering degree is what makes him such a great chef. I do use my English degree, however, when I encourage our staff to use correct pronouns and to avoid saying on the radios for all to hear, “Where are you at?” I do believe many of our staff had never before heard that it was improper to end a sentence with a preposition.

    Regardless of our backgrounds, Randy and I feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to raise our family and work together in this wonderful environment. We have no trouble counting our blessings each day.
