2009 was our second trip to Latigo. It is a unique and bonding experience for the entire family. The aspect that I find so interesting is the ability of the owners and wranglers to make the horse-riding work for seemingly every age and level of experience. In 2009, we found that as a whole the other guest were more inexperienced riders then we were. We did not mention this and attended the training along with everyone else on Monday morning. Somehow the staff picked up on it, and within a day they had my husband and me on an adventure to herd a few cows from a neighboring ranch up and down the side of a mountain or 2. We felt like the man from snowy river. Now, we were not any help and likely just a nuisance, but we were made to feel like we were fine help! For us, it was a special experience. Most of all, we were so impressed at how they recognized an opportunity to make it especially fun for us and took it, while also paying equal attention to our 8 year old newly learning-rider. We love Latigo and will likely return in 2010.
