We ask that each visitor sign a release and a copy of our barn rules and that all horses come in healthy and utd on vaccinations and deworming. We will need a copy of a negative coggins (good for a year) and a clean health cert every 2 or so months during buggy season (March through October) to help ensure all horses coming in are healthy and not bringing anything onto the premises. Please schedule your ride time with us at least 3 days prior to your requested visit. (Please note, there is not a restroom on site for guest use).

Meet Our Team Here At Eclipse Ranch

Paige Melbye


I showed in 4-H as a member for 9 years, am a 4H leader, certified 4H riding levels rater and was the 2015 Larimer County Fair & Rodeo Queen. I have been showing horses with AQHA since 2008 and have grown up in the circuit with my mom showing her AQHA reining stallion and colts since 1992. I have been on the cover of Group Magazine and have many years experience training, riding, and showing.

Julie Melbye

Julie founded Eclipse Ranch in 1992 when she purchased her first AQHA reining stallion as a weanling and has since passed the business down to Paige. Julie continues to be a big part of Eclipse Ranch. She helps with many aspects including breeding operations, marketing and facility improvements.

Scott Melbye

Scott has always been one of the biggest supporters of Eclipse Ranch. He is always present in our show career to cheer on the Eclipse horses. He is also, as we like to call him, our muscle. He has been a huge part of every addition and improvement that has been added to our facility, from the lockers, to the paddock shelters to the individual runs. And we would never be able to bring in as much hay each month that we do without his help.

Our Team

Masters of converting coffee into customer satisfaction

Scott Lara

Scott is always by Paige's side. No matter the obstacle, big or small. Whether it be related to bringing in hay, conditioning horses or building additions on to our facility. Scott is a huge part of Eclipse Ranch.

Melissa Burgess

Melissa is new to the Eclipse Ranch team. While she has been a client of ours for many years, she has now become our intern where she will learn the ins and outs of running and equine facility and training colts.
