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.
