Discover the essence of Steamboat Spring's Western heritage by exploring the valley on horseback. Trail rides are tailored to all abilities with multi-day stay-and-ride options available at guest ranches. Delve deeper into the spirit of the West all summer long. Find your inner cowboy on a cattle drive at Saddleback Ranch or ride the mechanical bull at the Coco-Cola Adventure Zone, located on the mountain. Sit back and watch professional cowboys on Friday and Saturday nights during the Pro Rodeo Series. Experience the best of ranching and agricultural life by visiting the 101st Routt County Fair. Thursday-Sunday, Aug.13-16.
