The whole experience was rest. Our kids and Grandkids had a Great Time.

The Wrangler was so very Good and gave good info from the area and desert. Also was very good when our Grandaughter had mild heat stroke.

just a fun experience for my grandchildren. the trailriders were entertaining and attentive to the children.

We were late arriving due to traffic. Although we couldn't get out 90 min ride same day, the ranch did accomodate us on the next ride that day so we could still have our ride. My youngest grandchild was closely watched over and made the ride safe and fun for her.
