First I must marvel at the ENTIRE staff of Rocking Horse Ranch. We have traveled there twice before, and were greeted by people who really remembered us, and welcomed us back. The Turk family who own the ranch, must be wonderful people, since all their staff respect them so much, and continue to make this resort what it is. We were warmly greeted by George right in the parking lot - cowboy hat and all. The graciousness continued when we ran into Lisa and others inside. Even the waitress - I believe her name was Munro - remembered us with a smile, and made sure my son's birthday was a happy one. I think the most amazing welcome we recieved was by Chet in the rifle/archery area. He is so fun to be with, and remarkably helpful. He genuinely spoke about how nice it was to see us again, and more interestingly, spoke about how grateful he is to work at this establishment with his highly talented horse wrangler wife Patti. We enjoyed this year's trip immensely. There is no better place to bond with your family. There is never a time to be bored. There is only time to enjoy priceless memories. We even made some new friends with the staff - like Lauryn whose smiling face made all the fun games even more enjoyable. Needless to say the riding, skiing, tubing, archery, bb-guns, swimming, dancing, eating, playing games, and just taking a breathe to enjoy some time with the family was unbeatable. We are booked again for next year, and hope to never break the tradition. Thanks to all the staff for making Rocking Horse Ranch the place to bring your family.
