GATEWAY, Colo. — The Palisade Ranch offers visitors a true cowboy experience in the heart of the American West.

“We want them to feel like they walked into a movie set and are one of the actors,” Palisade Ranch manager Ross Bronson said.

The newly refurbished ranch is part of the Gateway Canyon Resorts, the brainchild of Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks.

The Palisade Ranch will start by giving you a horse riding demonstration, then the real fun begins.

“We do everything from small pony rides, to scenic trail rides to half-day rides and all-day rides,” Bronson said. “Not only do they get riding experience, but they are also out with the cows. And for most people just being in the same pasture with the cows, they are in hog heaven.”

You can also saddle up to help wrangle those cows and even get a roping lesson.
