Horseback Tips for Riding in Trail Environments

Posted by Rusty Spurr on Oct 13, 2019 under Colorado, Horseback Riding, Rusty Spurr Ranch, Vacation Although Rusty Spurr Ranch has off-trail horseback riding and open-range cattle drives, we want to make everyone aware of the proper precautions to take when trail riding on a single track. Many other stables utilize single track trails that are often multi-use, public Forest Service trails. The trails that you are asked to follow when horseback riding are not just for you; they are also to help prevent the deterioration of the environment. By sticking to the trails, you are limiting the damage your horse might cause to the area you are traveling through. One of the actions we recommend is encouraging your horse to walk through puddles, as riding around the area will widen the trial which will in turn destroy the vegetation….

What happens during the off-season at our horse back riding stables?

Posted by Rusty Spurr on Nov 04, 2019 under Breckenridge, Colorado, Rusty Spurr Ranch Every year after a beautiful summer season, the weather changes and we move into our off-season. Off-season for trail riding is usually considered to be the wintertime here in Breckenridge, Colorado. Specifically, our equestrian season starts in early May as soon as the snow melts off our trails and lasts into the fall after the gorgeous golden aspens lose their leaves around late September. The off-season, riding dates, and reservation ability can sometimes fluctuate slightly due to the unpredictability of Colorado’s weather and when the snow comes and goes, but that is our general seasonal riding schedule. You might be wondering what happens during the off-season and what we do with the horses. Here at Rusty Spurr Ranch, we use the off season to catch up…
