Since 1971 your hosts, a nice family have been sharing this unique location with guests. Get away from it all in simple well-appointed accommodations and enjoy healthy cuisine using home raised ingredients. Spend a week at the ranch enjoying the vast landscapes with great company and responsive, friendly horses. The ranch is a working ranch and during your vacation you will have opportunities to help drive cattle, which graze in high mountain meadows during the summer. You can hone your skills during the weekly team sorting competition. Working cattle on horseback can give new meaning to the partnership between horse and rider, adding another dimension to your riding holiday. We are especially proud of our many home bred horses.
