My 11 year old granddaughter and I went on a Road Scholar Intergenerational Trip to this ranch. I can't say enough about how well the trip was organized by Road Scholar, and about how wonderful the people at this ranch are. The mountain setting (elev. about 4500 ft) is gorgeous. The trip was very well organized - sometimes we were with the kids but sometimes we weren't, and that was nice. The staff are all expert horsemen and women, and clearly enjoy teaching "greenhorns" to ride. They taught us a lot and were incredibly patient. There was a nice variety to the activities and our group of 14 became a little "family." The cabins are rustic but that was part of the fun. The meals were good and plentiful. My granddaughter, who is horse crazy, smiled non-stop for 5 days.!
