Ranch Stays

Zapata Ranch

If leisurely days of riding with 2,000 bison or in the neighboring Great Sand Dunes National Park, or hiking the wild Sangre de Cristo Mountains and joining in with the ranch work sound like you, then Zapata’s your place. In the evening relax in the lodge, have a massage and enjoy a gourmet dinner. All riding levels welcome.

Paintrock Canyon Ranch

The Paintrock Canyon Ranch sprawls across northern Wyoming, made up of rolling meadows and streams carving through high alpine valleys. In 2023, we are opening the ranch to guests for the first time for a series of pack trips into the Bighorn Mountains.

The MP Ranch

The MP is a wild, isolated landscape in central New Mexico, steeped in Native American heritage. It remains one of the increasingly rare places that is untouched by humans and modern life. In 2023, we are opening the ranch to guests for the first time for a series of horsemanship clinics and working ranch vacations.
