About Colorado Cattle Company & Guest Ranch

Do you have a dream of being a cowboy? Tom and Darcy Carr, and their entire ranch staff, look forward to showing you the cowboy adventure of a lifetime. This is a real working ranch vacation. Our week looks like this:

Sunday: A welcome BBQ for dinner at our new campsite with real tepees.

Monday you spend the morning with Darcy going over orientation and the first horse rides.

Tuesday thru Friday mornings you are on horseback most of the day checking/moving cattle to the next pasture, checking water tanks and minerals.

In the afternoons you can do Cowboy School or take a round of shooting clay pigeons or target practice or camp-out overnight like a real Cowboy on Wednesday nights!

We have horses to suit all riding abilities. There is no head to tail riding here. You will ride alongside real cowboys, and do what they do. They will teach you, and you will do, the real ranch work.

At the cowboy school you will improve your riding skills, drive cattle, sort cattle, rope, doctor and check herds. Our wide open spaces beckon you to ride out and explore to find that missing cow/calf pair, that stubborn yearling or just to see what is over the next hill. The terrain is full of hills, streams, and beautiful canyon rides, etc.

As for accommodations, we will pamper you with five star service. We have comfortable and western style rooms, meals prepared by our chef, swim in the indoor heated pool, enjoy a hot tub or dry sauna after your long rides. We do have wireless internet in the guest rooms and great room. We treat you like family at our cattle ranch. We all eat together in the main dining room, we have a great room to relax in or watch television and movies via satellite. Our gift shop is a great place to shop to remember your cowboy dream vacation.
