About Us

Wayne and Luanna Iacovetto purchased Saddleback Ranch from Luanna’s father, Jim Thompson, in 1993. In the years prior to ranching, they had other family-owned and operated businesses, including a cattle feedlot, a fishing store, and a grocery store.

Today, the working cattle ranch and recreational business of Saddleback Ranch is a product of their combined visions and a lifetime of experiences. They take great pride in the ranch and their way of life, but most of all they love sharing it with the thousands of people who come to visit every year.

Justin is the oldest son and he and his wife, Cara, have two daughters.

Justin, Cara, and their girls work on the ranch, and especially love working alongside each other in the ranching way of life.

In their spare time they like to camp, hunt, fish and ride horses in the high country.

Jason, the middle son lives in Wheatland, Wyoming with with his wife Anita and their four children. Jason is the Pastor at the Wheatland Bible Church.

Jason and Anita have a deep love for God and their ministry.  We miss them on the ranch, but we are very proud of them and their work in Wyoming.

Jerad, the youngest of the three brothers, lives on the ranch with his wife Lane and their four daughters. They enjoy team roping, snowmobiling, and the ranching way of life.

Jerad and Lane both were born and raised in Steamboat Springs and are thankful they are able to raise their daughters in such a beautiful place.
