My wife & I spent three days here in July 2014. We are moderate-to good riders who have been to similar dude ranches. From the owners all the way through the staff, everyone was friendly & helpful. The size of the ranch (I think the capacity is less than 100 guests) means that it is easy to meet other guests - especially during the rides and at the family-style meals. Special kudos to the wranglers - Marty, Jonathan, Katherine, Erica, Dani and the rest were all really, really wonderful.
There are other activities, but this is a place for horseback riding. Be sure everyone in your party wants to ride horses. The meals are hearty and good with no pretensions of fanciness. Our room was the Cary Grant room. It was clean & comfortable. Rooms don't have TVs or phones (yay!). The WiFi service was only in the lobby and maybe the immediate area beyond. It did not seem to work well, even when I was in the lobby. The area has limited cell phone coverage: folks with Sprint and Verizon had limited connectivity. Folks with AT&T & T-Mobile had none.
We loved making new friends, the long lope rides, learning more about keeping, training & riding horses. We will definitely be back - sure hope they have a hot-tub by then!
