My wife and I are from UK and we went to this Ranch with friends from Texas and although we knew nothing of what we might expect there, we had a most enjoyable time. It is very relaxing place, rural and rustic of course, thats the whole idea. The food was amazing and prepared by the wonderful staff and served by them with so much care for your needs and well being.
The highlight has to be the twice a day horse riding experience. My wife and I had not been on a horse for a few years, so real beginners. The cowboys were helpful and good humoured and kept a close eye on us all as we rode through the ajoining countryside of the ranch, taking us on a different trail each time. Again the highlight had to be the cowboy breakfast at 8 am watching the sun rise over the ranch.
There were many other activities to take part in if you choose including a very attractive looking pool, but we didn't.
This is a wonderful spot to experience a ranch way of life. There is still a great potential that could be explored to bring this up to a top rate business and experience, but I suppose this is part of its charm. A wonderful experience that we hope one day to repeat.
