Dude Ranch 1
All Ages
June 9th - June 15th

Summer 2013
Adult Dude Ranch
Beginner to Expert Riding Program:
The horse experience is central, the riding program is suited for every ability--whether you are a timid beginner or an avid rider. With a herd of 70 horses, many were born on the ranch. They match their horses to your ability, and offer plenty of riding variety: Riding instruction, half and all day trail rides, cattle work, a gymkhana, and private lessons. Trail rides explore the spectacular Piedra Wilderness Area surrounding the ranch, and our wranglers stress safety and learning.  The philosophy is the more you learn about horses, the less you fear, and the more fun you will have. If trail riding is not enough join the Cattle workshop and learn how to manage the herd and play rodeo arena games or try a natural horsemanship clinic.
Other Activities for Singles:
Activities you can enjoy beyond horseback riding include hiking, fishing, water skiing, Mesa-Verde tour (Oldest discovered Indian ruins in the US), river rafting, dance lessons, hay ride, campfire sing-along, live music and dancing, massage therapy, and much more.
We can arrange for trips on the Durango - Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway and top-quality guided fly fishing on the San Juan River.
Relax by our 72-foot heated swimming pool, soak in the hot tub, or simply enjoy sitting on the front porch  watching the day fade into a magnificent star-filled night. On this vacation you won't be at a loss for things to do!
Transportation to Ranch:
Meeting airport is Durango, Colorado Code: DRO. Plan on arriving after 1 PM Sunday and departing after lunch Saturday. (Ranch has farewell luncheon on Saturday.)
