I have ridden all my life and have taken my Granddaughters on this trail ride. It is terrific, with spectacular scenery,
healthy, well kept horses, and very personable trail guides with tons of experience. I've ridden with this Ranch three summers and the experience has always been delightful. From 6 years old to 99 years old, you will love it!
Our family of 12 just finished a week at DWR. We ranged in age from 3 to 68. DWR was everything as advertised, and more. Our six grandkids (ages 3-14) were busy every day and no one wanted to leave. The horseback riding was exceptional and it was amazing to see how the kids progressed through the week. All of the other activities were fantastic, especially the raft trip, and it was great to see kids just being kids! All adults had a fantastic time as well. The wranglers were exceptional; the Fosha family creates a truly family friendly environment; the customer service focus is outstanding; the meals were great; and the accommodations worked out perfectly. Highly recommended for any and all families looking to get unplugged in a beautiful Rocky Mountain setting.
