STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Marabou Ranch – a premier luxury ranch with more than 20 miles of equestrian trails offering picturesque Steamboat Springs views – embraces the authentic Colorado lifestyle with an extensive Western horse training program.

Marabou Ranch is home to a remuda of 20 horses for owners to enjoy, along with a wood and stone horse barn that provides all of the necessary equestrian gear. The Barn also features a full-sized riding arena where owners can work on their horsemanship skills, including chase steers and barrel racing.

Owners and their guests will delight in guided rides on Marabou's 1,717 acres of incredible Yampa Valley land, including trails that follow elk and deer paths and run along the Elk River.

Owners can also help herd the more than 120 cows, calves and steers who live on the land at Marabou Ranch.

Chad Bedell, a World Title holder and former 12-year professional steer wrestler, serves as Marabou's Ranch Manager and Horseback Master Guide and is always happy to share his horse expertise.

"The owners really love experiencing what it is like to be a real cowboy on a working ranch, helping us move the cattle from pasture to pasture" said Bedell. "Marabou definitely offers an opportunity for people to advance their horsemanship skills, which is unique."

Priced starting at $1.5 million, each homesite at Marabou Ranch is its own private refuge of at least five acres, all offering sweeping Colorado panoramas.

Amenities at Marabou Ranch include the Downstream Spa, the zero-entry kid-friendly Rivers Edge Pool with two hot tubs and a Fitness Center with cardio machines, kinesis strength equipment and free weights. All owners at Marabou Ranch can enjoy four weeks of lodging each year at the Owners' Cabins, six luxuriously appointed retreats that are available for use only by property owners and their guests.

Owners and guests can enjoy Marabou Ranch's world-class fly fishing on more than two miles of private waters on Colorado's renowned Elk River, along with 10 still-water fisheries known for trophy trout fishing and access to more than 100-miles of private and public Northwestern Colorado water. Marabou allows hunting of female (cow) elk to keep the herd numbers in check and dispersed but no hunting of males is allowed.

In the winter months, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the famous "Champagne Powder" at Steamboat Ski Resort. Marabou's Ranch offers a private Mountain Camp located at the base of Mount Werner next to Steamboat's main gondola, an ideal gathering place to gear up for the day with ski lockers featuring boot dryers.
