My husband and I spend a week at a horse ranch in the West every summer. We live in Florida, have our own horses and do a lot of trail riding. The scenery at Paradise Ranch was amazing. The Bighorn Mountains are extremely beautiful. Our cabin was very nice with a kitchen, living room and fireplace. The view from the front deck was great and some mornings you could see Elk herds and Moose from the deck especially if you were up early. We also saw elk and deer on several rides. The other guests were very friendly and we had a lot of fun with them and made a lot of new friends. The Paradise Ranch website says "We custom fit each guest with the horse that perfectly matches their riding ability". However, this is not true. We told them that we were experienced riders and requested horses accordingly. They ignored our request and gave us horses that barely moved. My horse would barely trot and almost never loped. This would have been a great horse for a six year old. Every afternoon I would ask for another horse but was refused. During breakfast people signed up for what type of ride they wanted that day and we always picked lope but it almost always ended up being just a walk. I know they had better horses because at the team penning event I saw less experienced guests riding better horses than we had. The wranglers at the stables were not very friendly and most treated the adults like children telling us the same things over and over. Some of the wranglers were very nice especially Aaron, Josh, Austin and Lane. However, I would have thought one of them could have given me a better horse. I was looking forward to the square dance night but the wranglers took over and the guests never made it to the dance floor. If you've never ridden a horse and you just want your horse to walk and you just want to look at scenery this is the place for you.
