My first experience at EMR was in 1988 when Tom & Sue were wranglers. We have been on quite a few vacations, but I have to say this was the most memorable. Tom & Sue care about each and every guest and that is evident in their staff. The personal attention goes above and beyond. You will not regret spending your vacation at EMR. If you want to go on every ride offered (like my daughter), you can. If you want to spend the day reading on the porch, walking up to the corral to visit the horses, white-water rafting, trying your hand at target practice, archery, fishing or trap-shooting, you can. Tom told us this was our vacation to do as much or as little as we wanted. The food is wonderful, whether cooked in the kitchen or over an open fire on a trail ride. One of my favorite things about the ranch is no tv or phone in our cabins! Who has time to watch tv when you can chat around a fire with new friends or watch the kids play a rousing game of spoons with some of the staff? You meet at the beginning of the week as strangers, but you leave as friends & family.
