Colorado Ranch Vacations

Colorado dude ranches offer great hospitality and western horseback riding year round, in the US state famous for the high peaks of the Rocky Mountains.

Colorado ranch vacations also offer the opportunity to visit one of its three spectacular National Parks while on your USA horse riding holidays, as well as native American ruins and ghost towns left over from the gold rush.

Nicknamed the Centennial State, Colorado is noted for its vivid landscape of mountains, plains, mesas and canyons – but it’s perhaps best known for its traditional western cowboy culture and agricultural ranching lifestyle. The US state spans most of the Southern Rocky Mountains, as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains – and such a diverse and beautiful landscape is seen no better way than from the back of a horse on a western ranch vacation. As well as a huge variety of destinations for guest ranch, dude ranch and working ranch vacations, Colorado boasts four National Parks: Mesa Verde National Park, the Rocky Mountain National park, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National park and the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.
