Where I stayed
One evening the children were taken off for a pow wow and barbecue and the adults were spoilt with a seven-course sample menu. We did not know what to expect and we must admit, coming from London and having had the luxury of sampling some of the best restaurants in the world, our expectations were not that high
We were entertained on our last evening by Bear Grass, another country sing-along with a couple who played banjos and guitars. The kids had fun with the wranglers, Fynn crashed by the fire on the rugs supplied and slept in front of the fire and stayed there until we were ready to carry them back to the cabin.
The final ride was our best – we were taken out by Randy (actually Ian in a dreadful wig) put us through our paces. Everyone in the group – myself, Nancy, Sig, Elizabeth, Fred and Travis (the wrangler at the rear) went for about four amazing long loping runs. We went up and down the steepest of treks, which you had to rely (hope) that the horses knew what they were doing. We finished at a meadow for a barbecue and then rode the horses back to the ranch.
While this ride took place the boys (Tim, Rob and Ian) took off for a day’s fly-fishing where they waded into the St
Everyone, even the elderly members of our group had a great time at the Ranch. The combination of riding and outdoors activity, staying in amazing log cabins, the views, the hospitality, food, drink and children’s programme makes this a fantastic holiday for everyone. We would certainly love to return. I think it would be hard to find a ranch that would offer such variety on riding too. It is going to be hard to ride in London again after this – the thought of just going around a ring or for a trot around a park is definitely dull. Thoroughly and utterly recommended. Honest guys forget the beach resorts for one year and try this.
Ps – for those that do not horse ride a tip (from Judith and Jane) was to wear pantyhose (tights) - this was for the men and ladies of the group. To aid chaffing. Suggestion is that you don’t buy the spandex variety and make sure they are Queen Size for men.
