Our ranch has evolved from originally a recreational property into a working ranch property with irrigated pasture and meadowlands making it quite suitable for raising sheep and hay. We feature Suffolk Sheep, a big-boned and hearty meat animal, raised on our unique high mountain grasses. This gives our lamb a flavor superior to foreign and feedlot animals. In the fall we sell the lambs to individuals and restaurants. Please contact us if you are interested in one of our mountain grown lambs.
We produce over 200 tons of high quality mountain hay consisting of timothy, clover and brome grasses that is sought after by horse owners all over the country. Contact us early if you are interested in hay as most of our hay is pre-sold.
We began hosting events with family weddings and then the weddings of special friends, memorials, and various other gatherings. We prefer a casual western atmosphere where participants can relax and enjoy the beauty of our landscape. Fishing is good in the creek and in Stagecoach Reservoir three miles away. numerous biking, hiking and horseback trails are on and adjacent to the ranch. The ranch is close enough to Steamboat for convenience but far enough away to be away from it all.
The Flying Horse Ranch is a beautiful, scenic property located in the Morrison Creek Drainage at the confluence of three creeks: Morrison, Bushy, and Silver Creeks. The meadows and 10-acre lake are surrounded by mountains and the Routt National Forest. The ranch is 25 miles south of Steamboat Springs and about 3 hours west of Denver. The ranch was acquired 45 years ago by the Dequine family as a recreational property for its hunting and fishing, and began hay production about 20 years ago. Since the mid 90’s the ranch has also been a working sheep operation. Lydia joined Lou in 1995 and brought with her the Kid’s Cavalry riding camp, a beginning eventing camp that has evolved into pony club weekends, clinics, etc. Adult horsemanship clinics and lots of trail riding are also part of the happenings.
