Fall is a beautiful time to be in Steamboat and by horseback is a great way to enjoy the weather and views. Saddleback Ranch is my absolute favorite place to go. Warm reception by the Iacovetto family, well-trained horses, and wide open spaces. It's a little slice of heaven.

My wife had never been on a horse before and was pretty scared. The staff picked a great horse (Echo) for her and showed her how to direct the horse. English is not my wife's first language but she caught on and really enjoyed the ride. I have done trail rides before where the horses just stay in line and... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable 2 hour ride with one of the owners Luanna Iacovetto. The horses were nice, Luanna was quite friendly and shared some great stories about her business and the area and the vistas during our ride were beautiful. We will ride with Saddleback Ranch again and are looking forward to doing a cattle... More

Having never been on a horse before, the 2 hour photo opportunity ride was perfect for us. Kind guide, easy riding. Terrific photo opportunities.

My wife and I went on a relaxing cattle drive with Lee. Lee was very patient and explained everything to us. The 3 of us managed to round up 52 cattle and we had a ball. We walked a little funny for a while but had a great time.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a beautiful 2-hour scenic ride through yhe gorgeous Steamboat mountainside. Cory and Lou (and Lily the dog) were fantastic hosts. They were organized, attentive, and made sure everyone was comfortable with the horses, who were all on their best behavior! :) A great experience that we would highly recommend to every couple and family.
