The Horseback Riding Experience at the Home Ranch

In a single day’s ride you might find yourself climbing a mountain to take in expansive views of the Elk River Valley, loping through a high-country meadow beside the Continental divide, meandering through shimmering aspen groves alongside the Elk River, or working cattle on the historic Murphy-Larsen Ranch. When you return home to the ranch, we promise you will be pampered and taken care of as if you were part of our extended family. You can expect exquisite meals throughout the day, purple mountain sunsets, roaring campfires, impromptu concerts, and nightly showings of the Great Milky Way.
