I took my daughters to Rankin Ranch last week, and had a wonderful experience. The owners are genuinely delightful people, and the employees took such good care of us. I am not a horse person, but I definitely enjoyed my stay. The girls loved petting and feeding the animals, and riding through the beautiful scenery. We also had fun meeting...
