Your group's Experience: Our All Inclusive Ranch Vacation

The Ranch

You will be visiting a 4,000 acre working cattle ranch just outside of Westcliffe, Colorado. We have some of the darkest skies in the US (which means you will see an incredible amount of stars) and house traqulity here.

We have strong core values- true to our cowboy selves. Helping others, working hard, showing respect to people and animals alike, and always learning are just some of the values we believe in.

We only have one lodging facility on the WHOLE RANCH! What this means for your group is complete exclusivity to our facilities and full attention from our coaches.

The Horses

We pride ourselves in having some of the most well trained horses you can find on a guest ranch. For your enjoyment and your safety, we spend countless hours training our horses as well as coaching each guest to ride them with true horsemanship for everyone's benefit.

Not only do we care about how well behaved our animals are, we care deeply about their experience living here at Music Meadows Ranch. They get to graze and just be horses in the open meadows when they aren't working. This allows them to practice their innate social structure with Herd Dynamics.

You will learn all about Herd Dynamics on your very first day so you can understand how important it is to practice being a good leader for your horse. Don't worry if you show up knowing nothing, we are well equipped to help beginners and seasoned horseman alike.

The Ranch House

Originally a homestead in the late 1800s, rooms have been added on and it is now a cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Ranch House. There are beds for 8 people with a full kitchen and cozy fireplace in the living room to spend quality time around.

Although we encourage you to take some time away from the real world, we do have wifi for your use.

There is a wonderfully big yard with a fire pit, hammock, horseshoes, our new rustic hot tub, and the creek running through it.

Check out more details for the Ranch House here.

All of the Memories, None of the Stress. Our All Inclusive Ranch Vacations Have You Covered

Our 6 night, 5 day itineraries include about 6 hours a day with your guides. This will be spent learning horsemanship, checking on our Sangre Best Beef Cattle, enjoying a homemade picnic lunch each day, exploring the ranch and much more. This leaves you with several hours a day to relax in the hammock, fire up the Hot Tub, take a nap or shower after your exciting day on the ranch, or really just to do whatever you want to do. We have learned that it is necessary and FUN not to have every minute of your vacation planned out for you - just enough to keep you hungry for more. 

As far as food goes, once you book you will receive a series of emails from us. These emails include a full ranch menu where you will be able to pick (as a group) what you want to eat each day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and of course dessert!!) This allows us to plan ahead for your meals but also allows for you to arrive fully prepared for your stay, no decisions needed! Just make yourselves at home and enjoy :)

Even though we have a general itinerary, our guides will make specific goals with each person in your group and get the feel for your group collectively. This will help us tailor the experience to what you and your loved ones would enjoy the most.

Our Music Meadows Magic

“Music Meadows Ranch is an authentic, working cattle and horse ranch that could very well change your life. I met Elin in 1996 and can testify to the fact that she is the real thing; a real working cowgirl. She “ranches” for a living, a glorious, strenuous and demanding living. Music Meadows is not a dude ranch you visit, then go back to your life and forget. If you want to experience a lifestyle not often understood, then make every effort to get here. You will work honest and hard, acquire unexpected knowledge of yourself, and thank God for the experience.”

Lisa Frank

"Nicole was in charge of our rides and she was amazing. The girls hadn’t ridden so they got instruction for three days on our fabulous rides! Priceless! By day three they were comfortable with their horses and in control of them. They learned to trot and some canter. Dallas also rode with us and she was a big help and very nice. No head to tail at this ranch. We were encouraged to guide our own horse and spread out within reasonable distance of each other. By the time we left, the girls had so bonded with their horses that they cried to leave them. We had to say goodbye to them three times over the final twelve hours! I learned what “a girl and her horse” is all about. We’ll be back and back and back. Five stars plus!”

Gary Ganz

“Is a 5-star rating all I can give? It is so much more! Our family will never forget the week we spent at Music Meadows Ranch. The grandkids (5) still talk about working on the ranch. They learned many things from Elin and Rhoda that has been beneficial on our cattle farm since we were there. Sharing meals around the table was like being with family. There was something special for all the family to enjoy for ages 11, 16, 17, 18, 19, 41, 46, and two 74 years old.”
