Rocking Z - Montana

Ranch Stay

5 star rating   12 October 2019

Lars (this is their first In The Saddle holiday) Our horses were incredibly well-schooled. We rode in mountains, through rivers, and over vast open countryside. It was a wonderful and amazing experience.
During our stay we were lucky enough to wake up to a landscape completely covered with snow. As with a "magic trick", the landscape had turned into a Christmas card scene. Although there was a lot of snow it was no obstacle to our riding. One day, we rode with Ben, the cowboy of the ranch, to drive a herd of cattle over to another mountain, while the snow fell quietly. The snow, the scenery, and the riding and the experience of driving cattles were overwhelming and unforgettable.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

We were so lucky to get General Sherman's room. A large and cozy room with its own bath and toilet, a large and lovely double bed and a cozy gas fireplace which provided pleasant warmth. On one side we had a view of the mountains where we often saw deer passing by. On the other side, we looked out at the ranch with the mountains in the background. And just outside the door, Lexi, the ranch's sweet border collie, had found a comfortable accommodation on the chair. It was really nice to say good morning to Lexi every morning.
Our hosts, the Wirth family and their staff, prepared delicious and welcoming buffet for each morning, lunch and dinner. The meals were fixed "routines" where we ate with both the family and the others in the group. The atmosphere was relaxed and the talk was cheerful and lively.

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

Your information, your planning and the arrangement of the whole holiday, including our extra stay in Yellowstone has been absolutely perfect. From our first contact, where I talked about Hannes and my desire for a riding holiday in Montana with subsequent visit in Yellowstone, I have felt, and been convinced, that had everything in complete control. It has been incredibly liberating just to "let go" and let Rid & Rejs handle all the practicality, as well as inform us about important things to note.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

It has been an amazing holiday where we have been enriched with experiences we have only ever dreamed of before.
Thank you so much for an exceptionally good service and for an amazing holiday experience where everything just clapped.
🙂 Lars
