Some comments on my trip May 27-June 2nd, 2012: Kudos to all the wranglers. I’ve never seen such a great combination of area knowledge, horsemanship and genuine warmth rolled into each individual. There were no “dumb” questions no matter how many times they had been asked before. It was nice to see an emphasis on safety for horse and rider. Mel has quite an eye for quickly assessing abilities and matching them up to the appropriate mount and ride. Hadley you are a superb instructor. That was evident in “movie night” where you took folks like Molly, Pat and Andrea to levels even they probably didn’t think they would attain. For myself, “horse care 101″ was a terrific refresher for skills I once learned but hadn’t used for years. I’ll never forget the first ride. Our group experienced everything from sunshine to clouds, wind, rain and sleet, all in the same ride. Coming back that first trip there was blue sky to our immediate left, sleeting/wind around us and rain developing in the valley below us. You just can’t get that in Roswell Ga!
I think Eva should get special mention. She was our celebrity guest chef and made that fabulous chocolate souffle cake for everyone the night before she left. Thanks to John for wonderful meals. Kudos to the dining room and cabin staff as well. And nicest of all, they did my laundry!! I was so impressed!! My last comment is fantasy: I wish Bitterroot were closer.
