Saddleback Enjoy views of the Flattops, Sleeping Giant and Mt Werner on horseback. The first cattle were brought to Routt County in 1871 to utilize summer pastures. The Iacovetto family has passed our agriculture heritage through five generations.
Spend the day with us as we move cattle, check their health, bring in strays and make sure everything on the ranch is running smoothly. Our Cattle Drive rides are as unique as they are not "nose to tail" trail rides and no part of the day is "staged" so daily tasks vary. The horse riding pace on a Cattle Drive is usually slow, allowing for time to gain appreciation for the animals and make a four-legged friend or two. We have horses for all riding abilities on all our riding activities. On our dinner ride enjoy a 30-minute horseback ride to to our Double Dollar Lodge. After dinner take part in a calf roping instruction, ending the evening with a breathtaking Colorado sunset ride home.
