My family of 5 just returned from a vacation to Red Horse Mountain Ranch. We had been planning this trip which included a visit to Yellowstone for about a year. I can't say enough good things about the staff at the ranch. It's really evident that they love their job. The horseback riding was great. My wife and I were content to only do scenic riding for the week but my daughter was intent on doing a more advanced ride. The wranglers worked diligently with her throughout the week until she was able to do the advanced rides and she was thrilled. One of my other daughters enjoyed the kids program and new friends she made so much that she cried when it was time for us to leave. It was great to meet the other guests adn get to know people from across the country. The food was plentiful and excellent. There were also numerous healthy choices which we appreciated very much. Our family of 5 had the bottom level of the Eagles Nest cabin which was 2 bedrooms. The room was very clean and well stocked. The beds were super comfortable. It seemed from talking to the guests that all the cabins were very comfortable, although the hilltop cabin was further away than the others.
The activities at the ranch were great. We tried to do as much as possible and enjoyed every activity. I practically had to pull my daughter off the challenge course. As you can tell, I thought this was a great vacation and would recommend it if you are looking for a great family trip that allows you to spend active time with your family and also alone with your spouse.
