My friend and I got out of town for the weekend to go experience a dude ranch. Though we've both lived in Texas for decades, neither of us had ridden a horse since we were kids. What a BLAST! Though we didn't get to go fast, it was still fun. The animals, the scenery, and the people at the Silver Spur are top class. Even the other guests (from all over the world) made this a weekend to go down in the best memories book! I plan on returning.
The pool was not operating when we were there, and I never found a fitness room...but walking the trails and riding the horses and interacting with the animals was a lot more fun than sweating in some room with mirrors!
