This truly was the most fantastic holiday of my life! I wish i'd come sooner and I know i'll be back next year!
From the start I knew I was going to enjoy it before I got there, all my life i've wanted a horse of my own so to be given one for a week was like a dream come true. What I wasn't expecting was to absolutely love Sweet Grass. The ranch is in a stunning valley in the middle of nowhere and it would have to be one of the most beautiful places i've ever been.
This is not a 'Luxury 5 star' ranch where you sit around and get waited on, it's a working ranch that caters for guests. I stayed upstairs in the ranch house and shared a bathroom. The bed was comfy and to tell you the truth I hardly was at the ranch because I was out riding all day (which is why you are there), I was more than happy to flop into bed at the end of the day. The food is amazing and I loved sitting down with everyone, it felt like a big family.
My Horse was fantastic and we were matched perfectly. They even match a saddle to you. You can change both if you're not happy but I didn't need to.
The Wranglers are great, I rode with Laura most of the time and she was fantastic! Talk to your wrangler about horses or anything at all, they are really friendly!
I was lucky enough to muster cattle with Rocco and that was one of the best days! It was a long day in the saddle but well worth it, I felt like a real cowgirl!
Get up early and do a sunrise ride I promise you won't be disappointed!
I also loved barrel racing and riding bareback! Ask the wranglers and they can accommodate all of your riding needs. If you have any concerns they are really approachable and happy to help.
I would recommend Sweet Grass to anyone wanting a rustic/comfortable ranch experience. You come here to ride not sit around the ranch and be waited on. I barely sat still the whole time and I didn't have time to do anything around the ranch like go in the hot tub or play on the pool table I was literally out riding the whole time.
I loved it so much and I can't wait to go back!
