My husband and I spend a week at a horse ranch in the West every summer. We live in Florida, have our own horses and do a lot of trail riding. The scenery at Paradise Ranch was amazing. The Bighorn Mountains are extremely beautiful. Our cabin was very nice with a kitchen, living room and fireplace. The view from the front deck was great and some mornings you could see Elk herds and Moose from the deck especially if you were up early. We also saw elk and deer on several rides. The other guests were very friendly and we had a lot of fun with them and made a lot of new friends. The Paradise Ranch website says "We custom fit each guest with the horse that perfectly matches their riding ability". However, this is not true. We told them that we were experienced riders and requested horses accordingly. They ignored our request and gave us horses that barely moved. My horse would barely trot and almost never loped. This would have been a great horse for a six year old. Every afternoon I would ask for another horse but was refused. During breakfast people signed up for what type of ride they wanted that day and we always picked lope but it almost always ended up being just a walk. I know they had better horses because at the team penning event I saw less experienced guests riding better horses than we had. The wranglers at the stables were not very friendly and most treated the adults like children telling us the same things over and over. Some of the wranglers were very nice especially Aaron, Josh, Austin and Lane. However, I would have thought one of them could have given me a better horse. I was looking forward to the square dance night but the wranglers took over and the guests never made it to the dance floor. If you've never ridden a horse and you just want your horse to walk and you just want to look at scenery this is the place for you.

In our fast-paced world full of technology infusion, fast food meals and 140-character communication strings, Paradise Guest Ranch is an unparalleled time warp experience to a place where technology is unplugged, kids play outside until dark, families eat together, guests build friendships with each other and everyone tries something new. Even the ranch brand is “FUN”. The historic guest ranch in the middle of the 1.1 million acre Big Horn National Forest offers something exciting for everyone, from trail riding, team penning, fly fishing, wild flower hiking, pony rides, kids rodeo and much more. The hardest dilemma is picking between all of the unique offerings each day. For the adventure seeker, squeezing in a nap is near impossible. However, for the relaxation seeker, there is always a comfortable nook with a mountainous view and rhythmic sound of a flowing creek. Each meal seems to be tastier than the next, including smoked barbecue, chicken saltimbocca, sirloin steak and more mouthwatering dinners. We the exception of a few cookout dinners, most meals are served in the historic dining hall filled with long communal tables where families and crew sit shoulder to shoulder in traditional ranch style. In addition to the infamous talent night, picnic on the hill, chuck wagon dinner and square dance, a favorite evening highlight is Thursday’s Kids Overnight / Adults Gourmet Night where all of the kids campout overnight in the forest nearby with supervision and the adults enjoy a kids-free gourmet dinner followed by music and dancing. I’m never sure who has more fun, the parents or the s’more stuffed kids. This was our first stay back at Paradise in over 22 years. Amazingly, most elements of the experience remained unchanged after all of these years. Familiarity and comfort was embraced around every corner. The owners, Clay, Leah, Rebecca and Kevin, work tirelessly to deliver a consistent and exceptional experience for new and returning guests alike. Paradise stole my heart when I first visited the ranch in 1985 and will forever be like home to me. However, the true testament was watching two new families be first in line for rebooking next summer. Neither family expected to get hooked on Paradise so quickly. Be forewarned, there is something about Paradise that will forever capture a place in your heart.

It’s difficult to put into words how magical Paradise Guest Ranch is. This for us was week two of a 4 week trip across America and Canada and a dude ranch was something we were keen to incorporate. So following some research and a strong recommendation from our agent Felicia @ Odyssey Travel we went for PGR. It was me (42), my wife Sam (40), our boys (11 and 8) plus my parents (71 and 70). None of us had really ridden before! The accommodation is great but you don’t spend much time there. The riding programme is amazing - you just get on with it and choose rides to suit how you feel that day. The cow penning was a particular highlight. The scenery is unbelievable too. The fishing is also great fun with some knowledgeable guides who got the kids really good at fly fishing. The food is amazing - despite all the exercise we all put on a few pounds! But what you cannot really explain in words is the magic of the place that Leah and Clay have created. You socialise with all the staff, you make friends in the Saloon Bar and by day 2 or 3 the kids have just disappeared, out having fun with boys and girls from across the world. We will certainly be back

After one week at this truly beautiful ranch, I felt as relaxed as I normally do after taking two weeks off. Why, because my family and I were able to disconnect from our routine lives and connect with Paradise. The ranch is 12 miles from the nearest town of Buffalo and situated within a wooded bowl. Protected national forrest land surrounds the ranch and adds to the outdoor horse riding, hiking, and fishing opportunities. Other than the sounds of happy horses grazing in the pastures at night and the rushing creek that runs through the middle of the property, the ranch is silent at night (the ranch is not under any commercial airline flight path that I noticed). The owners Clay, Leah, Rebecca and Kevin are extremely personable and make an effort to get to know all the guests. Their staff are amazingly friendly and attentive, and they too make it their mission to ensure that each guest has an unforgettable experience. The food is incredible! Absolutely incredible. The best part of the week for my family and I was connecting with the other guests who came in from all corners of the country. You are able to build relationships based on shared experiences throughout the week. With no cell service available at the ranch, the guests are truly able to "disconnect" from work and "connect" with family, new friends, and the natural beauty of the ranch. A common conversation at meal time amongst the parents was the fact that our children had not asked to watch a video on the iPad, choosing instead to play with their new friends outside. True Paradise indeed!
