Having only ever ridden a horse once in my life before, and really not enjoying it, to say i was apprehensive about the Ranch holiday is an understatement! However, why i was concerned i'll never know. This place is knock-out.
This isn't any old ranch, it's pure luxury, in the most amazing location, simply breathtaking.
All the staff were so friendly and helpful. Each day we could choose what we wanted to do in terms of activities - horse riding, shooting, archery, walking, fly-fishing or cycling. And everyone gets their own guide (or cowboy), so what would cost around £500 a day in the UK for a professional gilly for fly-fishing is included here! And as for the riding, well i went out twice, and even cantered (i think!) once.
Oh and the food - best i've had in a 'hotel' for a long long time.
