Please provide one interesting tidbit about the ranch owners or staff...

I was so surprised that the cowboy's choice of radio station in his truck was NPR!

What makes this riding program stand out...

Individual attention

What about this ranch brings guests back...

I was very impressed with the food -- I am allergic to wheat, corn, potatoes and tomatoes. While I informed the ranch ahead of time, they adapted with no problems.

Another bit of information you'd like Top50 to know...

My visit in early June coincided with both forest fires around Coloroado Springs, as well as an invasion of miller moths. The reason I could not give 5 stars on cleanliness was the hundreds of moths in my bedroom. This was absolutely not the fault of the ranch or staff; however, I have a slight phobia of fluttery things, so the moths creeped me out :(

Would you recommend this ranch to others...

Definitely would recommend!

Please provide one interesting tidbit about the ranch owners or staff...

It was extremely authentic, nothing felt "put-on" or "for show". You're really helping to get work done and you're having an amazing time doing it. Work has never been so relaxing and gratifying!

What makes this riding program stand out...

No helmets, no trail riding. This is riding for work and riding for fun.

What about this ranch brings guests back...

The staff and the ease of how they run their working ranch vacation. They give you a schedule, but you can make the trip what you want by either participating all-in, watching, or relaxing on your own. There's no pressure, but a lot of encouragement.

Another bit of information you'd like Top50 to know...

This was an amazing ranch to visit as a single woman looking for a great solo experience.

Would you return...

Already booking my next trip. I can soak up some sun or take a nap any day, but to crack a whip, learn to work with leather, watch a herd of horses gallop across a field, round up young bulls, move cattle, and enjoy amazing home cooked food, good tunes and lots of jokes with the crew each night - now THAT is a VACATION to write home about!

Would you recommend this ranch to others...

Absolutely and I already have.
