Friendly staff matched riders/skills with the right horses. Beautiful scenery. Leisurely pace. Only negative on a holiday weekend was the extra large size of the group. Staff was very accommodating and helped with taking family pictures in great spot at the end of the ride.

...guarantee a memorable souvenir. Saddleback Ranch may well be the set of a Hollywood movie. Well, it isn't. It is an authentic, working cattle Ranch. It brought out the inner cowboy in me (and I am from Germany!). I always wanted to grow up at Shiloh Ranch or Ponderosa. It's not just a vacation stop off the beaten path. It's... More

We took the 2 hour ride, and it was one of the best activities of our summertime trip to Steamboat. Riding horseback through open ranch land in Colorado is a real treat and a special way to enjoy the scenery. This is a family owned and operated ranch, and the family's love of their land and what they do shows.... More

This was one of the most memorable experiences of our Stramboat vacation. We went on a 2 hr horseback ride around the gorgeous ranch. One of our guides was Maddie, and I don't remember the other woman's name but she was wonderful as well! The horses seemed happy, healthy, and well cared for. The guides made thoughtful choices in picking... More

This was one of my favorite activities on our Steamboat vacation. We went in early June so the weather was beautiful. Most of our family are pretty inexperienced riders so I was slightly nervous but it was wonderful. I loved the view! Just gorgeous! My husband wished we had come back a different way just to see something different but... More

Our guides were Caleb and Maddie. Very beautiful ranch and friendly people. They explained things well and were good about keeping everyone together. We had a gorgeous day which helped. They were great horses and we got to watch a gentleman shoe the horses almost like a manicure. It was worth the money. However next time we want to do... More

The family who operates Saddleback along with the food was WONDERFUL; entertainment was eh! The sleigh ride did not face forward so everyone did not have a good view and we rode back in a bus; which was a let down.

We were here in late December 2013. WHAT a BLAST!!! We had the absolute best time! Everyone in our group, ages 4-65, had the best time snow tubing! Their set up is so easy and makes it so enjoyable. It wasn't crowded and the views were amazing. We then took a group snow mobile tour which was also just awesome!... More
