Thank you for the wonderful week at Elkhorn Ranch with the H clan. [We] had a great time as did our 2 sons, their wives and the 3 grandchildren. The hospitality, the staff, the food, the activities were all excellent! You both do such a wonderful job of making people feel welcome. Your staff interacted in such a positive way with our family. We thank you for a fun, relaxing week.

WAY BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS!
Riding, accommodation, food & people were all fantastic and the boys thanked me individually & without prompting for a most amazing holiday & experience! We didn’t want to leave our horses … Those lucky Americans who go year after year! I’ve never been to a place with such loyal repeat business, but can now fully understand why.
EQUESTRIANS DREAM EXPERIENCE
I have recently returned from a three week vacation at Elkhorn Ranch. This is an equestrian’s dream experience. The ability to choose the type of ride, easy to loping, and the terrain of interest, desert or mountain, was honored each day in the company of expert wranglers. The horses are very well trained and provide sheer enjoyment for the rider. The delicious food was varied, plentiful, and prepped by an experienced chef. Traveling solo, I made so many new friends and look forward to returning for a repeat visit. I give Charley, Mary, and the entire Elkhorn Ranch staff 5 stars for my vacation!

Thank you so much for everything! This has been such an amazing experience. All of the wildlife has been beautiful, everything is so much different, and greater than expected. I loved seeing all of the new birds, different kinds of plants and of course the may cacti, and all of the gorgeous horses are breathtaking. I can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful times we have had here, all of the fun experiences we’ve had, and all of the lovely friends we have made. I hope more than anything that we can come back next year! Thanks again, Love,

LOPING THROUGH THE WASHES BY THE END OF THE WEEK…
Our young children had never ridden before our visit to Elkhorn. The horses were so gentle with the kids, and the wranglers made them feel comfortable riding off into the hills the very first morning. By the end of the week we were all loping through the washes!
Rory and I had such a great time at the ranch. We love your family, the staff and guests. The thoughts, memories and photos of our visit will carry us through until we see you again next year. Thank you again for all your hard work, consideration and hospitality.
