The rest of the reviews about this ranch are spot on (ignore the 1 bad review it's fiction).
From the moment that June came out to meet us in the car park to the moment we left this morning we have had the most amazing and fantastic experience. This ranch is without question run with passion and love for the purpose of giving each guest a wonderful experience that exceeds everything you hope it is going to be.
Jim and Annie are very experienced Wranglers with safety at the top of their list, they are also excellent company. One thing you won't expect is the friends you will make, to share this experience with like minded people will make you friends for life. The way June and David run this ranch is exceptional from the welfare of their extensive herd of truly inspirational horses to the spotless cabins and fun itinerary. So much effort has gone in to each trail, each meal and each day. Cami-Jo (Cook/Chef) could give Chef Ramsey a run for his money.
The day spent with Larry in the Crazies up to 8100 ft was spectacular as was the wagon ride to the hunting lodge. June and David have created a haven for horse and country lovers, they allow you to herd their cattle, team pen, gallop across the plains and so much more.
One tip.. we flew in to Bozeman and by chance spotted the Walmart just before you head out onto the more remote areas. Its quite a long drive to the nearest store and each cabin has a huge fridge so stock up on the way... (booze mainly as the food is more than ample). Also watch your speed on the very long roads after you turn off 82. I got stopped by a State Trooper who kindly let me off when I gave him my full blown confused British Tourist act :-)
Thanks again June, David, Jim, Annie, Larry, Cami-Jo, Jess, Virginia and the very special people who stayed with us this week. Hope to return again.
