Latigo Ranch, Colorado, USA


We invite you to visit us, the Georges and Yosts, at Latigo Ranch! Having owned the ranch for 28 years and raising our families here, we possess a true passion for this lifestyle. We are very hands-on owners, participating in the activities, doing the cooking, teaching horsemanship or flyfishing and getting to know our guests personally. We love what we do and where we are; sharing this with you is our passion.

The moment you arrive you begin to realize why Latigo was selected by Colorado’s Best as “Colorado’s Best Dude Ranch”. Weekly, without exception, Latigo guests ask us where we get such respectful and incredible staff.

Each guest raves about the quality of our horses and the thoroughness of our horse program. Whether in the arena or on the trail we place emphasis on improving your riding skills.
There are so many interesting things to learn and we enjoy sharing information with you about all of it - vegetaion, wildlife, geology and history, your horse, riding, archaeology and more. You'll find that the real reason, however, people come back each year is the opportunity to be together as a family.We enjoy serving people and want to make sure you have the vacation of a lifetime. Our goal is to develop friendships, not just customers.
