A quintessential aspect of life on a ranch is keeping horses, whether for riding, rodeos, or relaxing with. Plus, they’re pretty. Adventures in the saddle often lead to landscapes rarely viewed and traversed other than by horseback. And in the heart of the Colorado Rockies, sits one stretch of alpine paradise equestrian lovers don’t want to miss.

Nestled within the resort town of Steamboat Springs sits Alpine Mountain Ranch and Club, a 1,216-acre luxury ranch community located just five minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs. The property provides a perfect blend of modern, luxury amenities, yet also exemplifies all things Western, including horses.
