Wake up to a beautiful sunrise over the surrounding wooded hills, and breathe in the cool, clean, fresh mountain air as you bask in the ambiance of the pristine mountain meadows. Saddle up and exercise your favorite horse at an elevation that will make him/her a stronger performer at the next event.

For decades people have come from across the globe to visit this renowned ranch, truly a horse lover’s destination that offers an opportunity for horsemanship and education from Pat Parelli. Pat’s hard work is evident when one sees the property and the ranch is a testament to his dedication, making it a perfect fit for a seasoned horseman or equestrian enthusiast.

The Ranch

The ranch features rolling grass meadows and wooded hillsides bordering the San Juan National Forest. With plenty of pasture for grazing cattle, the sub-irrigated meadows in the valley could also be put back into hay production if desired. The property has multiple spring-fed ponds, depending on the season, and the property includes horse and livestock-friendly “sawbuck” fencing.

The Home

The ranch’s main home is log-sided with quality finishes including tiled floors and solid granite slab kitchen counters. The kitchen features high-end stainless steel appliances. The home features 2 bedrooms and 1 ¾ bathrooms. A peaceful covered patio with a fire pit and outdoor furniture on the south side provides the perfect place to spend the evenings as the sun goes down over the scenic landscape.

Entertain your guests with a nice bbq and play some music under the patio lights. Ride your horse right up under the east side covered patio which has a horse wash bay and drainage system. The heat source is a propane-forced air furnace and there is an air conditioner that keeps the house cool. With a nice lighted and covered carport on a concrete slab, you can pull right up to the front door and walk right into the house. There is a metal shop on the property for storing your toys or use as a workshop for projects.

The Facilities

The ranch has the potential to easily host multiple events simultaneously while attendees can stay on-site in one of the guest cabins, RV sites, or camping areas. The ranch is well equipped to accommodate large groups of people with numerous cabins on the ranch, RV hookups, and endless camping areas. The upstairs of the lodge has rooms for guests. Showers are downstairs along with the full commercial kitchen and dining area. In addition to the main home, there is also a modular home on the property for staff or your ranch foreman. In all, the property has 15 cabins, 28 RV sites, numerous camping sites, and two guest rooms upstairs in the lodge.

The property includes numerous outdoor stalls, round pens, tack rooms, wash bays, training areas, two full-size arenas, a covered training arena, a 12-stall horse barn with a tack room, and two lean-to horse stalls. The equestrian improvements on this property cater to anyone in the horsemanship training industry. Several spacious arenas and training areas provide an excellent opportunity for hosting diverse equine activities.
