We’re thankful to all the nice folks who came out and had fun.

  • Horse drawn wagon ride- Belgian draught horses and sleigh bells make this a holiday favorite
  • Tractor-drawn hayride- a slow and easy ride along the foothills trail
  • Christmas caroling and singalongs a songfest of classics carols accompanied by piano or guitar…it’s not fancy, but it will warm your heart
  • Cowboy entertainment, singing and lots of laughter- Cowboy Jake is the funniest gunslinger around…the real deal

  • Face Painting for the kids -Santa’s elves bring their own brand of fun

Lori & Susan — Ready to Ride!


While you’re at the ranch, make plans to treat your body right, too.

What’s better then a classic massage and hot-tub soak at the end of a perfect day of riding?

Massages are performed indoors or out, subject to the weather. We offer a choice of natural oils…Citrus Blend, Peppermint and Eucalyptus are current favorites. Choose a deep tissue, therapeutic massage to relieve sore muscles and rejuvenate and re-energize the body. Or try our Relaxation Massage, offering a lighter touch to relax the overall body and mind…you may even fall asleep!

Wrap up your massage experience with a leisurely soak in the hot tub as you share laughs and stories with new found friends.
Treat your body right!

Sylvan Dale Ranch is the home of the Preston Middle School Wildlife Research Project, a project based learning program in association with International Telementor Program.

This unique project enables Preston’s students to improve wildlife habitat, learn scientific inquiry, explore web resources and, through the process, experience what it means to produce quality work.

Plus they get to see quite a bit of Sylvan Dale‘s wildlife and have allot of fun in the process.

The good folks at the Journal of the International Telementor published a full report in their Spring 2012 Issue and are kind enough to share it with you all:

Join us this Saturday for a true cowboy adventure…an overnight pack trip!

Cow_Camp_horses

We’ll mount-up at the Sylvan Dale stables and head west into the back country for a 3 hour ride of awesome scenery and views of the valley and beyond.

Cow Camp is a 1930′s homestead…very rustic.

We’ll enjoy a hearty steak fry followed by a friendly campfire and s’mores.  Sleep out under the stars and awake to the smell of cowboy coffee, sizzling bacon and eggs.   

Then enjoy a morning ride back to the main Ranch.

Everything is provided:

Horse, gear, guide and grub included… $210 per person

-Departs Saturday at 2… returns Sunday at 11

Don’t forget your camera!

Just a few saddles still empty! We’d love to have you join us. 

Call  970-667-3915 to reserve your space.

Dec 28, 2011  Headed to the valley to check-up on the horses…they look happy (as usual).  Glad to see they are finding their way to the drinking pond.  Standing in the valley with horses on a brilliant winter morning is a great way to start the day.
