Unique Reunions

fam reunion

When you get a bunch of people together for a reunion you have a lot of personalities and interests to satisfy. Here at Red Horse Mountain Ranch, our staff love helping families have unforgettable reunions. We have something for everyone and pride ourselves on being professionals in this business. Families who come here for a reunion have many options to keep themselves as busy or as "un" busy ask they want. Each day offers various guided adventures. From our main feature of horseback riding, to sporting clays, archery, kayaking, zip-lines, and fishing, everyone will find something to do. Each member of the family is assigned their own horse for the week and our guides make sure you are not only safe, but that you go home with new exciting experiences and a camera full of memories.Barn manager Tyler Cress has this to say about why he loves to see families come to Red Horse Mountain Ranch for their reunions. "My guides are awesome. They are passionate about what they do and strive « Continue »

Time Lapse Video on the Challenge Course

 Is was a fun day at the challenge course! This video was taken from the zip line platform. You have to see all the kids going up the climbing wall! Great Job! At the ranch, the challenge course is offered on Monday afternoon. The kids do the Flying Squirrel, climbing wall, Leap of Faith, Cat Walk, and of course, the Zip Line. Parents have the option of going too!It's so much fun watching the kids overcome and grow from the encouragement by the parents and the staff. It's another great adventure in a safe environment. The equipment is provided for everyone but you could sure bring your climbing shoes if they'll fit in your luggage, but they are not needed. Comfortable clothing and sneakers (or a good pair of cowboy boots) are just fine. Sunglasses, a hat, and sun screen are great additions for sure! It's also a good way to get the kids ready for the big MEGA ZIP which happens on Friday! « Continue »

They have become good friends of the staff here and we always look forward to their annual return. We also know, if we treat them really well, they will send us coffee as a gift when they get back home!!So, if you are looking to cut out the chase of finding a vacation that you don't feel so "touristy", a dude ranch vacation at Red Horse Mountain « Continue »

The “Sweet 6″ enjoying a little friendly competition at the sporting clays range.

Sporting clays Range

We had a "blast" with the "Sweet 6" this week! Here they were enjoying having the range all to themselves. This summer, the sporting clays range is open almost every afternoon. For you shooters or those wanting to try shotgun sports for the first time, the Red Horse Mountain Ranch sporting clays range is a perfect setting for it during your ranch vacation.Sporting Clays were developed in England as a method for preparing for the hunt, but today is a great past time in the U.S. and also can be a very competitive sport. Our range has a total of 5 stations, giving the shooter all kinds of possible targets that mimic what you'd see in the field.  Action packed and exciting, it is a sure bet for an enjoyable outing.You'll be given instruction and will be participating in a safely controlled environment.  Shooters will be provided with 20 or 12 gauge shotguns, in semi-auto, over and under, or pump configurations. Our Sporting Clay course has made good use of thick brush, steep « Continue »

Help Red Horse Welcome our New Ranch Manager Family.

Rob and Ashley Farmer with Baby Lane

I have been chomping at the bit to get this out to everyone for quite sometime and I can't be more happy.I am pleased to announce the promotion of Rob Farmer to the position of Ranch Manager. As Ranch Manager, Rob will take on my responsibilities for the Ranch’s daily operations and oversee guest services, food and beverage operations, housekeeping, and activities. Some of you remember Rob and his wife Ashley first coming to the ranch many years ago. Time does fly, and it’s been almost 8 years since their first summer. The ranch is so excited to have him join us in a leadership role and help us move the ranch forward once again. Rob and I have been closely working together since November of last year in getting him ready to take over daily operations.I first met Rob as a college grad looking for a summer job. I was actually trying to hire Ashley and as a condition of employment (she made it seem to be the case), she was adamant that I needed to hire Rob. I agreed without « Continue »
