In a world where technology reigns supreme, it’s refreshing to take a step back into a simpler time; a time when people were kindred spirits with the land; a time when the open frontier offered limitless exploration. A loyal horse and a packed lunch were all any adventurer needed.    

Step back into this magical time at The Sugar & Spice Ranch, where Old West Wyoming comes to life. Featuring horseback riding expeditions, stunning mountain scenery, beautiful wildlife, and rustic cabin accommodations, this ranch transports you back to Wyoming’s heyday.   

The Sugar & Spice Ranch Owner Leigh McCourt explains this Old World allure:  “Can you hear it? It’s the voice of freedom and the wide open spaces. It’s the voices of the past; of our pioneers calling us back. Are you prepared to be swept away by the beauty and clarity of it all? Are you ready to run? Are you ready for Wyoming?”  

Your Old World excursion starts with horseback riding adventures through the ruggedly beautiful landscape. Saddle up and ride through the pine-lined Rocky Mountain trails and gallop through the rolling valleys. With experienced instructors and hand-picked horses, you’re sure to find the perfect riding partner.

If you’d prefer a different mode of transportation, hike through the lush Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest, the towering High Country peaks, or along the creek-covered plains. As you explore the breathtaking backcountry, you’re sure to catch a glimpse of unique wildlife like roaming cattle and mighty elk.

You’ll also find alluring aquatic activities. A plethora of ponds and creeks are just outside your back door, offering fantastic fishing. Toss in a line and you’re likely to reel in rainbow, brown, and brook trout. Or cool off with a refreshing swim in these sparkling bodies of water.  

After an action-packed day, return to your rustic residence, an authentic cabin from the 1800s. Live like a pioneer in your lantern-lit lodging, the call of a majestic bull elk echoing off the mountains. When the sun dips below the horizon, enjoy a hearty meal around the campfire while staring at the star-painted sky and listening to the exciting tales of yesteryear. You’ll truly reconnect with the past.  

“Join some kindred spirits and find yourself swept away into our world of horses, fresh mountain air, and evening campfires under a blanket of stars that was once gazed upon by pioneers long ago,” McCourt said.

Lasso this opportunity before it’s too late, as this unforgettable ranch experience only runs in August. And don’t worry about planning activities and meals because this rustic retreat is all-inclusive.  

Horseback riding, awe-inspiring views, and authentic 1800s accommodations truly allow The Sugar & Spice Ranch guests to step back into Old West Wyoming.
