Meet the Site Hosts ... The Strang Ranch
Strang Ranch is located at 7000 feet in the hills above the beautiful Roaring Fork Valley, with stunning views to the south of Mount Sopris and the Elk Mountain Range in Western Colorado. The ranch covers 460 acres of irrigated and pasture land, and is only 10 – 20 minutes from the towns of Carbondale, Basalt, and Glenwood Springs, and 30 minutes from Aspen.
The Strang Ranch is a family owned and run business. It is a working cattle ranch and a sport horse breeding operation as well as a busy equestrian center, hosting many hunter/jumper and dressage shows, clinics and daily lessons.
The Roaring Fork Valley is host to world class restaurants, fantastic hiking, biking, and rafting, and September is still in good time for those activities. We hope you will come and enjoy this wonderful valley.
The weather in mid-late September can be amazing. We could be very warm in the depths of Indian summer, and wake up with a hard frost in the morning. Wet and cold are not unheard of, but we have ordered bountiful sun, and begged for the snow to stay in the mountains until Tuesday after the trial.
