My husband and I NEVER visit anywhere twice - we like to see and do new things. RTR is an exception. We went two years ago (see my previous review) and we went this year again. If you take into account also that it is a very difficult (and expensive) journey to go to RTR from where we live - the West Midlands in the UK - I hope people will realise what a special place this is. I was really surprised over the comments by RoadTripper 007 and would certainly recommend, as Jane does, that a week in the Adults Only time may have been better. I personally can't comment about the main season since we would never go then as we are not fortunate to have children or grandchildren but the Adults Only weeks are just brilliant.
We have been to other dude ranches in the States and were intending this year to try somewhere else but the lure of RTR was too much. A lot of it is the horses and the way they are looked after. It would upset me a lot if the horses were not well looked after but I don't have to worry about that at RTR. Jane is quite happy to change your steed (as both of us did this year), it is not a problem - she is there to ensure you have a good time riding whatever your ability. And the horses going back to fields at the end of the day is just magical........
We did have a couple of minor problems in our cabin - all sorted within minutes. Food was great - we love Doug and his coffee pots........... Staff again wonderful - no talk about religion just polite, happy youngsters - again a manifestation of what a gift Linda has of employing staff.
As my title says.......another wonderful week.
