Laramie River Ranch was everything we hoped and more! Relaxed family time, great meals and adventures on the best horses around - including scenery, 1/2 day and all day rides including a delicious lunch and amazing views. Plus so much more - hiking, tubing down the river, tie-dying shirts, line dancing and super fun family pics. PLUS, time to relax,... More

We organised this trip for my dads retirement and the staff even before we had arrived could not have been more helpful. Organising the trip and how to get there was all explained and posted out to us. When there the staff were super-attentive and so helpful and friendly. All the staff sit with you and get to know you... More

We spent 4 nights as a family of 16 to celebrate my 70th birthday and my daughter's significant birthdays. Eight grandchildren from 4 to 19 years old. The ranch, staff, and owner (and horses, cat, dog, cows, and donkeys) were superb. We all got to ride as much as we wanted and each ride was tailored to our capabilities and... More

My daughter is 17 and has been riding for ten years and I'm an inexperienced rider, and we both had a great time. The staff was great and the owner was always around if you had a question. Rides and views were fantastic. If you like camping, stay the week and go on the overnight trip. The food and deserts... More

We just returned from a half week trip and it was outstanding! My family are not experienced riders but the team at LRR were great and made us feel very comfortable and we enjoyed rides that were within our ability level and received guidance on how to raise our ability levels along the way. The staff was very friendly and... More

The best place to get away from it all and enjoy great horses and hospitality. So many fun activities for adults and children both. The ranch, wranglers, staff and horses all make for a unique ranch experience - oh and don't forget Carmel the ranch dog! The horseback riding was just superb - never have I had a chance to... More

If you are interested in a warm, horse-focused dude ranch, this is the place for you! The staff, including the crew and the wranglers, was absolutely top notch. They went above and beyond, every minute of the day, to ensure that we were well cared for. And the horse riding was exceptional. The wranglers were very skilled and very willing... More

This is my third year at Laramie River Ranch and my sixteenth year of annual riding vacations. I've visited ranches from Arkansas to Montana and at none of them do they put the time and effort into preparing their horses for riders as they do at LLR. Weeks before the first guests arrive the horses are put through their paces... More

There are not enough superlatives into English language to describe our time at the Laramie River Ranch. Ultimately, a dude ranch holiday must be measured by the quality of the horses and the riding experience. Whether experienced or a relative novice, LRR caters superbly, with fit, healthy, well schooled horses that were very well matched to their riders. The ranch... More

We just returned from our 2nd summer visit to the ranch. Bill and Krista, the owners, provide the best and safest horses and riding experiences possible; comfortable, clean lodging; great food; good camaraderie; and a spectacular setting alongside the river with snow-capped mountains in the distance. The friendly staff is so warm, welcoming and helpful. If you want to "unplug"... More
