Do not be fooled: this is not a ranch, this is a hotel and spa for people who want the illusion they went on a ranch. In other words there's horse back riding and they call it a 'ranch', They treat people like they're 6 year olds that need to be corralled. I really have a hard time being patronized sorry. If you are a rider you are going to hate this. If you know nothing about horses or riding or the cow-boy life you're going to love it and be lulled into thinking you were 'on a ranch'... it's perfect for people who just don't want the workout, just the impression of it.
Watered down experience ruined it. Sad. There's NOTHING genuine about this place.
