We take great pride in our family and our way of life, and it shows in the way we run our business and take care of our ranch. When you come to Saddleback you're not only a cowboy for a day, but part of the family. Long pants and sturdy shoes are recommended. Guests may want to bring a jacket.
Dinner rides include your choice of taking a 30-minute horseback or horse-drawn wagon ride to the Double Dollar Lodge. When you arrive at the lodge you will be welcomed with cold drinks and given a chance to take in the scenery before dinner. After dinner, head outside and let us teach you how to calf rope. At the end of the evening you will enjoy a ride back to edge of the property while viewing the beautiful Colorado sunset from the wagon or on horseback.
