Rocking Z - Montana

Ranch Stay

5 star rating   8 June 2019

SJ (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Absolutely brilliant! | Coming from Norfolk (extremely flat) found the steepness of the hills somewhat of a shock lol but the horses are so surefooted and know the trails so didn’t feel unsafe.
My husband had a slight saddle slipping issue with his horse on the first day but they readily swapped horses and all was good after that.
Loved that we didn’t have to trail ride every day (unless you wanted to) but we wanted to try the other activities on offer. Fulfilled my ambitions of trying barrel racing and cow cutting.
Having said that, the trail rides were amazing - beautiful scenery.
Also loved the parelli and can’t explain how amazing it felt to ride with no reins, just my focus, it was magical.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Rooms are spacious and very comfortable- lovely log/gas fires light easily in the morning to take off the chill.
Great home cooked food, they catered for me as a vegetarian well. As a Brit it was nice to have a proper cup of tea (Tetley) whenever we wanted lol.
Rather spoilt us for the following week in Yellowstone where being vegetarian was a challenge and a decent tea was impossible to come by!
