TO SPOTTED FEVER RANCH
Nestled in the
heart of the San Luis Valley in southern Colorado, Spotted Fever
Ranch gives you the unique opportunity to view wild
mustangs in their natural habitat. The ranch is the culmination
and realization of our dreams. Since establishing the ranch, we discovered
and have grown to love these wild icons of American culture and want
to share this extraordinary experience with you.
We do not conduct
"nose to tail" trail riding; rather, you will ride with
us on 60,000 acres of open range. We do not offer tennis courts,
hot tubs or large social gatherings. We do not have a "mess
hall" or bunk houses; rather, you will join us for delicious
meals and conversation at our table.

formed in 1983 in northern Colorado where we raised "spotted"
Appaloosas and soon after that "spotted" Texas Longhorn
cattle. To stay consistent, we even had a spotted dog, spotted rabbits,
and spotted chickens. It seemed natural to want everyone else to
catch our "spotted fever;" thus, Spotted Fever Ranch
and our brand were born.
In 1999 we switched
to raising registered paint horses. The ranch name was well entrenched
by this time and still seemed to sound right, so we kept it! We
bought our 300 acre southern ranch in 2006 when it found us (interesting
story!) and decided that the San Luis Valley would be our new and
permanent home. The horses and cattle thrive here and look awesome
with a backdrop of snow-covered mountains in any direction.
that there are a large number of wild
mustangs in the area, we switched from mountain trail riding
to exploring the mustang terrain. We soon started taking friends
with us to enjoy our new find!
It was an easy
and natural progression to start taking others to view these wild
and spectacular creatures. Now, along with our horse and cattle operation,
we have opened up a small guest ranch to share these spectacular icons
of the American West with you. We limit visits to no more than six
guests at a time so we can provide a quiet and unique experience.
Yours will be the only party booked for the time you have reserved.
We tailor the
mustang viewing to suit how
you want to observe these beautiful animals. If you like to vacation
with your horse, please bring him along and ride him to do the mustang
viewing. If you just want a quiet place to relax in a western atmosphere,
our neighbors are a long ways away, there is no highway noise, and
we have a beautiful 360 degree view of the mountains.
will only be a stranger until you drive through the front gate! We
look forward to seeing you at Spotted Fever Ranch!
