Just got back from a four day stay with my eight year old son at the Goosewing Ranch in Jackson, WY. Had a fantastic time. Besides achieving our intended goal of learning to ride, we learned how to rope, cast fly rods, shoot an arrow and throw a hatchett. The place is gorgeous and the staff are super nice. We didn't avail ourselves of the sauna and massage options but the pool and hot tub were just what we needed after spending time in the saddle. This is the perfect ranch for those with children and/or those who don't want to sacrifice their creature comforts for a ranch experience. The food was excellent (some of the biggest prawns I'd ever seen!) and our cabin comfy and tastefully decorated with native American artifacts. For anyone seeking the perfect introduction to ranch living this is the place.
