Rocking Z - Montana

Experience Level

Ranch Stay

5 star rating   25 August 2018

Absolutely amazing place with the horses' welfare as top priority. The family were very patient with us all and were really good at learning and giving us more experience to "play", for example. help pick up horses in the morning, jump over tree trunks in the woods, give it a full gallop in the most beautiful surroundings.

I lived alone in a small room in the new extension to the main building. The most cosy room! Could stay there forever. The food was good and varied. Very satisfied!

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

I got all the information, but there were changes in my flight times, which caused some confusion at the airport. All my planes were delayed, so I had to run through both Frankfurt and Denver airports on the outbound flight. On my way home there were also delays, but they were to my advantage. Note to myself another time is that I'd rather have too much time between flights than too little. The staff mentioned that there were often delays on the stretches I flew so they recommend longer time.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Fantastic and life-changing journey for me. I traveled alone and I did not regret it at any time. Rocking Z is a lovely ranch where you are active all day and in the afternoon you can snuggle in a good chair and drink a beer while surrounded by mountains and beautiful scenery. The family takes all their guests in and treats them as part of their own family. There is room for all riding levels and if you want more, they will take time for you. The welfare of the horses is very high and their way of training the horses is amazing and the horses love their jobs and life on the ranch!
