30 days notice will receive a refund, less a 20% handling fee, if
your original time slot is booked by another party. If your original

an emergency or unforeseen circumstance all deposits will be refunded

out their own trip insurance.
The Mustang Viewing can sometimes be affected by inclement weather
due to the fact that it is at 8000' altitude and storms can develop
quickly and unpredictably. Spotted Fever Ranch reserves the
right to make the decision to not utilize riding horses to view
the mustangs if determined that the conditions are not safe. These
conditions could include high winds, lightning, thunderstorms or
blizzards. In this instance the decision may be made to utilize
vehicles and hiking to see the wild horses. If this can not be done
safely or adequately, then Spotted Fever Ranch will allow
you to rebook another visit of 2 nights at half price.

What to Bring
Riding gear should be jeans and boots. We do not allow shorts or
open-toed or open heel shoes to be worn while riding or interacting
with the horses. Boots should be sturdy riding boots or shoes that
do not hinder a rapid mount or dismount from the horse. If you prefer
riding in helmets, please bring your comfortable ones that you are
accustomed to as we will have a very limited selection available.
SFR sits at approximately 8000 ft above sea level. The sun can be
intense and the weather unpredictable. We highly recommend long
sleeves, a hat, your favorite sunscreen, lip balm, and sunglasses.
A light jacket is always recommended. We will provide slickers and
saddle/horn bags for you to store your personal items while you
ride. The nights are generally cool; a light jacket or sweat shirt
is recommended for your comfort. Don't get fancy. We just want you
to relax and enjoy. Don't forget your camera!
Non alcoholic beverages are provided. We offer beer and wine to
guests over 21 years of age at no charge. We do not allow consumption
of alcohol on the premises to anyone under the age of 21. We are
not licensed to sell alcohol but we are happy to serve your favorite
beverage if you choose to bring something other than beer or wine.
Due to the nature of the ranch animals and facilities, pets (other
than riding horses) are not allowed.
Smoking is not allowed inside the home or in the ranch out-buildings.
If you chose to bring your own horses we are happy to provide boarding
at a cost of $10 per day.
We want to make sure your trip is special. Expect a call from us
prior to your trip so that we can ensure any special needs are discussed.
If we don't answer your e-mail within 24 hours it's probably
because we are in the mountains making a good horse better!
