Welcome to the Rusty Spurr Ranch
Colorado’s premier off-trail horseback riding experience
Your adventure begins NOW. Rusty Spurr Ranch invites you to experience award-winning horseback riding trips that are truly unique compared with the standard tourist rides. Consistently awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence by our guests, we have been providing memorable horseback adventures for almost 20 years. Our ranch location, conveniently north of Breckenridge, allows plenty of space for off-trail horseback riding. We encourage our guests to “Get Outta Line” and really enjoy the connection between horse and rider.
Rocky Mountain Colorado Horseback Riding
Get away from the crowds to a unique western ranch
Our guests consistently say this was the best experience of their whole vacation and that’s our goal! We are passionate about what we do and it shows in the quality of our horses and staff. Sure, there are other trail riding opportunities near the ski resorts but most of the public trails around them are very popular high-use/multi-use areas and are limited to strict single-file horseback riding along with the mountain bikers, hikers and dogs. They cannot offer cross-country or off-trail riding as it is not permitted on these Forest Service lands. If your idea of horseback riding is having more freedom, being away from the crowds, and immersing yourself in the quiet serenity of the mountains, you have found the perfect place at the Rusty Spurr Ranch. We offer 1, 2 and 3 hour scenic aspen and mountain top rides, authentic Colorado cattle drives, and an all-day riding and rafting adventure called the Saddle and Paddle.
The Picture-Perfect Colorado Location
Equestrian stable conveniently located between Summit, Eagle, Grand and Routt county ski towns
If your Colorado vacation plan includes Breckenridge, Vail, Winter Park or the Steamboat Springs area, then head over to the Rusty Spurr Ranch. The best horse ride Colorado has to offer is centrally located between these world renowned ski resorts in the quaint area of Kremmling, Colorado. This small ranching town at the confluence of the Blue, Colorado, and Muddy rivers, is historically known for its cattle and hay production as well as being a modern sportsman’s paradise for fishing, hiking, rafting and off-road adventures.
Before you make your reservation, feel free to browse our 5-Star reviews on TripAdvisor, FaceBook, Yelp, and Google to see what our guests have been raving about. We look forward to your visit and hope you will be as inspired as we are when experiencing Colorado horseback.
