Spring in the San Juans

It’s been a cold winter but spring is coming! We are right around average for snowfall this winter and are thankful for all the moisture. We are looking forward to the upcoming season, seeing old friends and making new ones this summer and fall. The horses have enjoyed a winter’s break staying in a bit warmer and milder weather about 2 1/2 hours from here. We’ll be making the yearly round up the end of April and then back to work they go, getting ready for all the wonderful people we will have the chance to show around these mountains on one of the best ways to see them, on the back of a good gentle mountain horse! As the old spanish proverb says: ‘There is nothing better for the inside of a man, than the outside of a horse.’ How true it is! The spring elk migration is just around the corner. We’ll keep you posted and share photos as they move on up the Dolores River Valley from their wintering grounds. In the meantime, we look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you sometime in the year ahead!

The Summer Season Has Arrived!

Our summer season is in full swing!

The past couple weeks have been a whirlwind of activity! We have been meeting lots of new and old friends who are coming to stay for a night or more…. and others who have come in just for a day to do some horseback riding. We have also had a great series of groups here to enjoy all we have to offer. Here are a few of the latest highlights:

Wounded Warriors came out with the Telluride Adaptive Sports program for an afternoon of riding, zip line swing, cookout and music. Great Time! Wonderful group of guys and gals.

Sheridan Opera House Foundation hosts the Wild West Fest each year for inner city boys and girls from around the country. They joined us for a day of horseback riding and games though out the day on Friday.

The Phoenix Inner City Kids are here this week! They have been having lots of fun horseback riding, fishing, hiking, doing crafts, playing ball games, and having lots of great meetings together. Your patronage helps us to host these kids and their leaders for one week each summer.

What a joy to serve each and everyone of these groups.


We welcomed the newest member of our Circle K Family this week, Wrangler Michelle‚Äôs mule, ‘Molly’. Here is a pic of her in our lodge.
