This was a surprise 40th birthday from my partner, which he booked through an adventure holiday company which is associated with the ranch. with us joining a party of 11 in total. Rusty, who lives in Roscoe, was great and ensured we all made the most of the trip.
The ranch is amazing with everyone making you feel so welcome. The cowboys and cowgirls are friendly and polite, and are happy to spend time with less experienced riders like myself.
It is a working ranch so it is hands on from early in the morning but it is all part of the experience. While out on the rides the scenery is breathtaking. Absolutely stunning.
