Ever since "City Slickers" came out I always wantEd to go on a dude ranch vacation. Last summer I was afforded that opportunity and found Red Horse Mountain Ranch right here on Trip Advisor. Everyone raved about the ranch, absolute glowing recommendations. Now it is my turn to rave about.
We (me, my daughter, and son) could not wait to go. You will get personalized attention, fabulous food, amazing staff, and the best horses. They have the worlds best bacon (the kids are still talking about it). If you want to do other things than just ride horses you can do archery, the rope course, mountain bikes, fishing and a ton of other stuff.
The cabins and lodge are beautifully appointed. The view from the main lodge is spectacular. The beds are so comfortable they're like sleeping on a cloud. The food is fantastic, from heavenly bacon to a lovely candle-lit dinner.
We had such an amazing time we are going back in 2011. Loved it. Even my 12 year old video game addict son had a ball from riding a horse the first time to archery to playing in the creek. He had so much fun he didn't even miss his computers. WOW!
