Every year after the weather turns we have off-season. Off-season is usually considered to be the wintertime here in Breckenridge, Colorado. Specifically, our equestrian season starts in early May and leads into the off-season starting around early October. The off-season, riding dates, and reservation ability can sometimes fluctuate due to the unpredictability of Colorado’s weather, but that is our general arrangement of the dates. You might be wondering what happens during the off-season and we’ll tell you. Here at Rusty Spurr Ranch we use the off season to keep our horses in top shape and address any repairs that may occur during the riding season. Throughout the season our equipment retains wear and needs upkeep. We inspect all of our safety gear and saddles to keep our riders safe. The most common maintenance we do during the off season is fixing fences, clearing brush, and shoeing our horses. Although our horses aren’t going on their daily passenger rides, we use the opportunity to retrain and make sure that our horses are well cared for and able to provide all riders with a safe and fun adventure during the riding season. We work our horses to be sound, strong, and fit. To accomplish this we keep our horses groomed and well-exercised to allow for a more realistic experience. You can make a reservation today for your own equestrian escapade on our home page and if you have any questions about our fees and availability, feel free to contact us. We hope to see you here at Rusty Spurr Ranch after this off-season.
