Just go. Stop your research now and make your reservation. After weeks of research and comparisons, we chose the Lazy L and B for our first ranch experience for our family of four (kids 11 and 14). It was the perfect choice for us new riders who wanted lots of time on the horses, good food, and a few other things to do. The excellent reviews say it all. You cannot imagine a more beautiful, diverse setting, which made for different, surprising rides each day. We lucked out to be there with so many wonderful, international families that we were able to get to know. The kids hung out as a group and were free to explore on their own. Cute cabins with comfortable mattresses, excellent food at every meal, warm lodge for gathering. Naturally, not every wrangler provides the same individual attention, so my advice is that if you have any issues at all with your horse or the instruction, you need to speak up. If we ever do this type of vacation again, will will definitely go back.
