It is obvious that Bill and Krista put a lot of thought into this ranch, and it shows...from the delicious meals, the well-kept horses, the limitless places to ride, and the friendly staff...the Laramie River Ranch exceeded all my expectations.
They truly care about their horses and know that they are key to a great "dude" experience, and it shows. They have 70 horses from which to choose, so it is almost guaranteed that the perfect match can be found for any rider with any level of experience.
I found myself wishing I were back there, even weeks after returning home from vacation. I definitely will return and bring as many friends and family with me as possible. I couldn't recommend this place any higher.
