The Rusty Spurr Ranch offers non-nose-to-tail riding. Our guests are permitted, encouraged and given instruction on how to spread out and ride abreast instead of in a strict nose-to-tail fashion. We offer a variety of trail ride experiences, a 3-4 hour Cattle Drive and our all-in-one Saddle&Paddle activity providing the opportunity to ride and raft all in one day! We are centrally located to several top Colorado resorts. We are about an hour from Breckenridge, Steamboat and Winter Park, so wherever you stay you can easily enjoy a ride with us.

No nose- to -tail ride here. With the assistance of a wrangler you can explore the 1,000's of acres on the ranch. We had amazing views of the Rockies and Wyoming. We even went searching for lost cattle. The 3 hour ride was the highlight...More
