I am local in Denver. So this place isn't really far for Denver residents. I have also been riding in many different parts of Colorado so I can give a comparison as far as riding goes. First, the ranch itself is fabulous for family vacation especially with kids and teens. The staffs are so helpful. You can leave your young... More

We flew from the UK and stayed there in late May 2014 and it was simply the most amazing holiday ever! Staff were so friendly and unendingly helpful and the ranch-hands were skilled & patient. Of the 4 adults in our group, 2 had never ridden before but were cantering (or loping) by the end of 3 days! The food... More

My 7 year old daughter and I went to LVL for her birthday and Thanksgiving this year. We wanted a real Western horse back-riding adventure in the secluded beauty of the Colorado mountains. We got everything we wanted and more. The trail rides were gorgeous and the wranglers were very attentive and accomodating for our riding level with lots of... More

My grown-up Londoner daughter has wanted to be a cowgirl since she was little. She did the research this year to find us a ranch holiday in the USA, one that had availability (we were booking very late) and it had to be easy to fly to after our visit with family in Texas. Last year we went on a... More

My wife and I went to LVR during a specialty week with one goal in mind: to improve our riding skills. We had been on numerous nose-to-tail walking trail rides, but we wanted more. LVR offers daily rides for all riding levels from beginner to advanced. We started our week on the beginner rides and were able to progress to... More

What a wonderful place! We visited in their "off season", but were not disappointed with the offerings! Our 10 year old loved catching large trout in the stocked pond (with provided rod and tackle), our teens loved riding, trap shooting, hiking, and the square dance, and my husband and I loved enjoying it all with them.

it's a very nice ranch with the staff that works hard and does its best serve you. However please be aware that this is a highly religious organization that holds prayer circles and religious singalongs. That may be fine for many people but it is not everyone's cup of tea... this is especially true since your children will be cared... More
