Let us make your cowboy dreams come true!


Colorado Cattle Company has the largest herd of riding horses in Colorado, and we can certainly match your riding ability to the right mount. Every day, our full time professional wranglers are ready to treat you to the best in western riding.


Colorado Cattle Company – “Where our Guests are the Cowboys.” We welcome all types of Cowboys and Cowgirls, from the timid beginners to the fearless veterans. We offer multiple levels of riding experiences, so fear not, we will cater to your skill and comfort level. We have over 80 extremely well trained and well-mannered quarter horses. Some are quiet for the beginners, others are more highly spirited for the experienced riders. Our instructors are professional cowboys. Our wrangler ratio to guest is about 1-5, so you can count on a very personal experience. We are not nose to tail—you can expect a variety of rides and scenery during your stay. We can have any rider “roping live steers from horseback” in one week, if that is what you wish. Every guest has the opportunity to tell us what their personal wish is, and we then work on that to make sure that wish comes true. Let us fulfill your personal desires and have the vacation of a lifetime!

  • This place offers you a unique & amazing experience with open space, horses & the real cowboys life! I loved it sooo much I was seriously depressed when I left! the food was excellent, the rooms well decorated and clean. The horses super healthy and happy, the owners so kind & accommodating, truly a magic place where to forget about your every day routine and to get in touch with something beautiful.

    Lost in the Wild
  • I spent 10 days at Colorado cattle at the beginning of August. I loved my time there, the horses are well looked after, happy and wiling. I rode Shiloh and Lilly, lots of cattle driving in including a trip on the last day to help move his herd, this is the real deal. I travelled solo and was made to feel so welcome, particularly by Jake and Sheila. See you next year!

    First Time Gowgirl
  • If the animals are friendly you can guarantee their owners are friendly! Right from the get go we were all made to feel welcome! The owners Tom and Darcey are a close couple and so obviously in love, it was a pleasure to be a part of their world for the week. The accommodation has been carefully thought about by…

    Amazing Adventure
  • What a wonderful weekend! I can’t compliment you and your family enough on what a great job you have done with your guest ranch. You’ve made it an exceptional place to visit, with hominess, hospitality and a genuine spirit of what a cattle ranch feels like. I especially appreciate how well the horses are taken care of and also the quality of them. Unlike many guest ranches, you have some exceptional horses that anyone would be proud to own, and even experienced riders can enjoy. I have to say the food also was very good and certainly more than enough. Thank you to your family and all the staff for providing a wonderful experience.

    Wonderful Weekend

For the safety of our guests and the health and well-being of our horses, we do have a guest weight limit.  This limit is 235 pounds.  When you receive your booking confirmation, this requirement will be included.  We must adhere to this policy, so if you are over that limit, you will not be able to ride.  You will be able to take part in all other ranch activities.  Again, you must be 235 pounds or less at the time of arrival.  We respectfully ask that you not put yourself or your ranch hosts in an awkward position, so either be below this weight limit or understand that you will not be able to ride.
