My husband, 15yr old daughter and I spent the most amazing 10 days at Klondike Ranch under the wonderful care of the Tass family and their staff. There aren't many holidays you can share with teenagers but this was definitely or best one so far.
My husband I were quite novice riders compared to or daughter but everyone felt very safe and managed all the rides. We wanted an experience which was authentic and which gave us a true insight into the day to day running of a ranch. We also wanted it to be a relaxed and with no fixed schedules or programs and at Klondike we got everything we'd wished for and more.
The guest numbers were small which made it feel like you were very much part of the ranch, The Wranglers Victoria, Coulter & his dad Manley were fantastic offering lots of help if needed but mainly just offering lots of interesting stories and many laughs. One of the best experiences we had as our camping trip up to the summer pasture on the Big Horn mts. The ride up and down was just amazing and the facilities & food up there was fantastic, the only thing we didn't get right was to take enough big cosy jackets for night time as it got really cold due to us being there quite late in the season.The other thing I feel I must mention is about the food and attention we got down at the ranch from Patty. She is the most generous hard working host I think I've ever met. Nothing is to much trouble for her and the meals which we all ate together in the family home were simply amazing. Be prepared to put on weight while there no matter how much riding you do! Also she is the most wonderful historian and loves nothing more that sharing all her knowledge of the surrounding area and local history.
Or only regret is that we wish we had spent much longer at the ranch as there was just so much to see and visit in Buffalo and the surrounding area, we hope that some day we'll get a chance to go return again.
