We operate in the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness Area and the Routt National Forest under a US Forest Service special use permit. (Colorado Outfitters License #22 – Insured and Bonded) We also operate on private property and state trust land. The guides and wranglers are all experienced horse riders. Some have served as guides for most of their lives. We’re active members of the Colorado Outfitters Association.
Who are the Steamboat Horses?
Most of our horses are raised on the ranch and trained locally. Several of them are featured in ads for the Steamboat Ski Area and have appeared in ads and videos all over the world. We have registered Quarter Horses, Canadian Sport Horses, Paints, Arabians, and even a few old nags.
