Looking for an eventful getaway for the weekend or job holiday to relax with your family and loved ones? This is it, search no more – Colorado Trails is perfect for all of you. During our special instruction week at summer’s end, horseback riding vacations are great fun and learning for all who attend. On our facilitated guest ranch, Colorado Trails, we offer personalized riding instruction clinics for riders of all experience levels.

Horseman’s’ Week on our guest ranch resort runs from August 29th to September 5th and is set aside for you, whether you’re a first timer, a horse owner wanting to improve on your skills, or just curious about horsemanship. You will be learning more about horses and the art behind riding them from our most experienced Colorado dude ranch wranglers, while also enjoying the surrounding scenery.

With 450 acres snuggled in a scenic mountain valley, our guest ranch resort, Colorado Trails, offers a gorgeous view of the mountain valley that connects to the San Juan National park, which occupies about two million acres. To get to our guest ranch, take a flight into Durango, where we’ll pick you up and deliver you on time for your return home flight from the Durango airport at no extra cost.

You can also fly into Albuquerque, New Mexico and then rent a car to make the rest of the trip to our Colorado guest ranch in stunning, historic Durango. By doing this, you’ll get the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful four hour drive, with unbelievable scenic views along the way.

Horseman’s Week is an excellent horseback riding vacation for your first time in the saddle or to show off your skills, you will enjoy an awesome variety of 85 horses from which to choose from. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner or have a lot of experience with horseback riding; our guest ranch wranglers’ goal is to make you feel right at home with our well kept horses on the ground, in the saddle and on the trail. We’ll find just the horse in our fine quality herd to match you accordingly for size, ability and personality. We offer diverse instructional and free time rides from wide open meadows loping through valley meadows, on trails through pristine stands of Ponderosa, and meandering alongside beautiful mountain creeks.

Upon confirming your booking at the guest ranch Colorado, the rest is covered. We take care of the meals, accommodations and basic requirements. All of your worries and doubts will be completely erased while you are here. We also offer several different discounts for our guests and Horseman’s Week is a discount special package among our standard horseback riding vacations rates.
