With a typical capacity of twenty-five guests, we’re small enough to give you the personal attention you deserve. We’ll select a horse to match your personality and experience. Our wranglers lead small groups of riders for morning, afternoon, and all-day rides across a tremendous variety of terrain. Instructional rides are available and guests are welcome to join the wranglers to groom and saddle their own horses if they please. And for those who would like to try their hand at working cattle, we have a lively team penning activity that is fun for all. We round up our steers, work them in the arena, and then drive them back to pasture for the night. It’s a great opportunity to improve your riding skills while having lots of fun.
When you decide to climb down off your horse our naturalist will be there to offer you stimulating walks and hikes. You’ll learn about the wide variety of plants and animals that share our mountain home. Antelope, elk, moose, coyote, and eagle sightings are sure to be topics of conversation at dinner.
Other activities include tubing down the river, learning to swing a rope, visiting the animals in our petting zoo, volleyball and horseshoes. In the evenings guests can enjoy guitar music, cowboy poetry, western dancing, or late night strolls to gaze at the stars.
Outdoor activities and fresh mountain air create healthy appetites. Whether it is on the trail or back at the ranch, meals are an event at the Laramie River Ranch. Warm homemade breads and desserts, fresh salads, fruits and vegetables, as well as delicious entrees keep guests coming back for more. Vegetarian alternatives are always available and special diets are cheerfully accommodated. In keeping with informal western tradition, meals are served family style.
The Laramie River Ranch prides itself on providing outstanding vacations for its guests. Come experience their hospitality and the great Rocky Mountains.
