This ranch far exceeded our expectations. The staff without question was amazing, and by the time we left had become part of our family. The accommodations made us feel at home and comfortable, waking up every morning to the sound of a stream, and momma cows teaching their baby cows the ropes. The kitchen staff blew our minds with every delicious meal, and left us excited for the meals to come. The ranch grounds themselves are spectacular, with views that leave you breathless and amazed at the beauty that the land offers. You can tell that as a team they take pride in their property.
I was privileged to ride two of BMRs horses during my stay, both of which made me feel comfortable and well taken care of even in the most challenging, and intimidating of trails. I was blow away at the wranglers ability to know the disposition of each horse, and even further, their ability to pair each horse with the right guest. Along with the BMR's horses, they treat their guests to an amazing experience of feeding and raising baby goats. During my time at BMR, I was lucky to participate in the moving of the baby goats from the original chicken coop to the green house where they would spend their time bouncing and playing until moved to the new petting area that was currently being built by one of the owners (oh yeah, did i mention, almost all the buildings you see during your time at BMR were built with love by the owners and staff!!) In addition to the horses and the goats, you get to meet and play with some of the most amazing ranch hounds.. well dogs! Howdy, Sammy, Poppy, Daisy, Tiki, Roxy, Bailey, Synch, some of the best dogs I have ever had the chance to play with making the experience that much better.
Honestly, I could write for days about my experience at BMR and how amazing it was, but you really have to experience it for yourself! If you don't, you will miss out on an opportunity of a lifetime. It is a vacation that will will bring families closer together, challenge you as an individual, and open your eyes to the beautiful gifts that life has to offer. Do something kind for yourself- book your trip!
