Personalized Colorado Horseback Experiences
Customized Private Rides for that Special Occasion

While we try to keep all of our ride sizes small, we understand that you may prefer to have a more personalized*, intimate ride. If that’s the case, then you should sign-up for one of our private rides where you will have your own dedicated wrangler for just your group. Whether it’s a special occasion and you would like some extra photo opportunities or you enjoy exploring the less-frequented areas of the ranch, a private ride at the Rusty Spurr Ranch is a sure way to have the most custom experience you can find. As with all of our rides, please remember that we do not guarantee anything faster than a walk.

*The minimum charge for a private ride is the price of two riders at the private ride rate.

  • Weight limit varies as we go by a Body Mass Index of 34 or less. So as an example, if a rider is 5'1", they cannot exceed 180 pounds. It is a height/weight combination that matters for guest and horse safety. In addition, the maximum they can carry is 230 pounds if you are a tall guest (at least 5'9"). If you are close to the limit, please call to check for availability. We weigh riders privately at check-in and if you exceed the limits WITH your clothes and shoes on, you cannot ride and no refunds are given. It is your responsibility to know your current weight/BMI before arriving at the ranch to avoid any dissapointments. We have had to turn people away at check-in and want to avoid this situation.
  • 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, or the single guest pays for 2 riders.
  • We add a 10% gratuity for parties of 7 or more. For unaccompanied children, we add a 15% gratuity. Groups of 9 or more have a NON-REFUNDABLE 50% cancellation charge anytime after booking as large groups reserve many of our resources and are harder to fill last-minute.

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
*Prices subject to change at any time
