We just returned from our second visit to Red Horse Mountain Ranch. This year was even better than last! As soon as we arrived Jody greeted us by name and escorted us to our cabin. There were 7 of us who returned from the same week last year so we caught up with old friends as we made new ones. They even had a special morning ride for returning guests so we didn't have to go through the orientation for the first-timers.
The kitchen staff had remembered our dietary preferences and every meal had gluten-free options. Lauren (an extraordinary baker) even made some sugar-free/wheat-free treats for us. All of the food was amazing!!
There were new activities this year including a "mega-zip line" which we didn't try but those who did really enjoyed it. We rode horseback every morning, also kayaked, pontooned, biked, and shot sporting clays. The long-range rifle was once again one of my husband's favorites.
There were activities every evening - my favorite was the campfires. They even let my bring my guitar and jam with some of the staff.
I was hesitant to write this review because I don't want everybody to find out about this amazing retreat. Cory and his staff are absolutely the best! They all clearly love what they do and really want to make this a special visit for their guests.
Oh - and we are already booked for next year! Can't wait to see everyone again!!
