  • Weight limit is 230 lbs. in conjunction with a max BMI of 35 (Body Mass Index). Availability for riders over 230 lbs is very limited and horses cannot accommodate anyone over 270 lbs. Please call to check for availability and be honest with your weight.
  • Age minimums are 12 years old for Cattle Drives and 8 years old for Trail Rides.
  • Please leave your dogs at home! We love dogs and do not wish to see them left in a hot car. Non-ranch dogs pose a safety risk around horses.
  • We ride in all weather including rain and snow.
  • Weather cancellations shall be at the sole discretion of the Rusty Spurr Ranch.
  • Please remember that the weather patterns in this area are highly localized and more often than not it is sunny here when it is raining in the ski area towns. Check out our 5 day local weather forecast on the Home Page.
  • All rides require advanced reservations to ensure availability.
  • All reservations are subject to a 48-hour cancellation policy.
  • Private rides require a two-person minimum.
  • We include a 10% gratuity for parties of 7 or more. For unaccompanied children, we include a 15% gratuity.

Rusty Spurr recommendations for the best ride possible:

  • Long pants and jackets or layers
  • Bug Spray, sunblock and a water bottle
  • Cameras are a MUST!
  • Sneakers or cowboy boots strongly recommended
  • NO sandals, clogs or high heels. NO heavily treaded hiking boots as they won’t fit in the stirrups
  • Backpacks not recommended; we provide saddle bags on each horse


All rides require advanced reservations to ensure availability. 

All rides meet 30 min before the departure time.  These are not your normal, nose to tail rides.  There will be places where the guests are required to ride this way due to the nature of the trails, but we encourage riders to ride next to one another, the guide or out and about whenever terrain permits.

All or part of this operation is conducted on public land under special permit

from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
