Guide Training for Guests

March 22-26, 2015

The inaugural guide training for guests was such a hit that we are going to offer it again in 2015!  Held in conjunction with the Horsemanship Retreat, this 4-night, 3-day training is a replica of the intense training we put our guide staff through each season.  Led by guides Steve, Kelli, and Brandon, the training is perfect for those who would like to have more knowledge and confidence venturing out into the backcountry, so they can go at it safely and comfortably.  Guests will learn navigation, survival skills, and trip planning.  You’ll come out of this training with an understanding of how to lead a trip at an appropriate intensity, duration, and terrain for yourself and others.  Steve and Kelli King bring over 20 years of guiding experience along with certifications in Wilderness Advanced First Aid, Wilderness First Responders, and PSIA Nordic Instructors.  Brandon Martin brings a combination of his guiding experience and Special Forces training to educate guests, empower them, and make going out into the backcountry safe and fun.  $1,795/person and limited to 6 guests.

Share and Save!

We want to make it easier to get your friends together for a Colorado Guest Ranch vacation. During certain times of the season, if more than 2 people share a cabin, we will give 50% off our all-inclusive rates for the additional guests. Get your girlfriends together and save, grab another couple and save, heck maybe even bring your in-laws…..well, we’ll leave that decision up to you.

This offer is valid during our adult-only times, both summer and winter, based on availability. Check out our all-inclusive resort rates for more details on our rates.

Or, feel free to contact us for more information.

Horsemanship Retreats

If you enjoyed the riding program during your dude ranch stay, here is a chance to come back for an intensive riding experience.  Our training team hosts a horsemanship retreat, typically each year at the end of our winter season.  The clinics focus on a broad spectrum of topics from maneuvering your horse with better communication to understanding conformation and more.  Click here for more information on the horsemanship retreat.
