Ranch Stay

5 star rating   2 July 2022

Susan who has been on 3 In The Saddle rides. Everything I'd dreamed of! | We had a fantastic week! I learnt so much; tried cattle cutting, Liberty, barrel racing and driving the heavy horses. I had two fantastic horses, who I felt quite sad to leave at the end of the week.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Our little cabin was exactly what I had hoped for, with gorgeous rustic wooden furniture and a big comfy bed.

The food was excellent and plenty of it.

Before Your Holiday

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

The information from Inthesaddle was all great - probably if anything a little over prepared as I didn't use my half chaps or the sun brim I bought especially for the trip to go over our helmets.

I think it would be even better if the ranch provided guests a list of what you can do during the week on arrival as perhaps a way to gauge interest and schedule in various activities. eg, if it hadn't been for the info pack In The Saddle provided, we wouldn't have seen the bison heard on our last afternoon.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

I did struggle to pay online with my VISA card. My card company said it was all clear to go from their side, but I kept getting the same error message. Would be great to be able to pay by BACS also.
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: I'm sorry if there was any confusion regarding payment. We absolutely take payment by BACS and it is our preferred payment method.]

Do you have any other feedback for us?

A huge thank you to Becky who I first talked to about this special trip about 3-4 years ago. I described the type of ranch I would like and she nailed it to an absolute T!

We were with an absolutely fantastic group of people (all from the US) and made many new 2 legged friends as well as 4 legged! 2 of which are coming to see us in the UK at Christmas.

I have many memories that will stay with me forever. The only downside is, I'm not sure any other holiday will ever live up to this one!

(I can pull out a few of the 600 photos I took if you want to use any for marketing!!)
[Becky from In The Saddle replies: Thank you very much for your feedback, I'm so pleased to have been able to assist.]
