Getting There

Making a difference

Latigo Ranch demonstrates great care and stewardship for their mountain lands and streams. The ranch has a proactive relationship with National Forest Service and has pioneered a new environmentally friendly method for horse corralling on overnight horse packing trips. This corralling technique reduces impact on fragile alpine ecosystems and eliminates siltation in stream beds. The National Forest Service has now adopted Latigo’s method.
