Feedback for 'Shell, Wyoming, USA' Ride
‘There aren’t sufficient words to describe how special this place is. Every box was checked for my vacation, from the quality of the horses and horsemanship, to the excellent staff, the wonderful, clean, appropriate accommodations, the delicious food and oh my god, the once-in-a-lifetime territory. I’ve lived and vacationed in many beautiful places, but I have never seen land like this. No two views are alike. You can be on the top of a mesa and see four completely different landscapes, depending on which way you face! The scenery literally changes every few minutes as you ride along. The colours, the scope, the grandeur of it all — there isn’t a photo that can do this land justice.
The horses are well cared-for, high quality, trustworthy and sensible. If you are inspired by and committed to great horsemanship, you will find no place equal.
I would never have found this place were it not for Globetrotting. I’m grateful beyond words for Kate, her brilliant staff and her excellent sourcing of perhaps the best Western riding experience in North America. I booked a stay for next year while still at the ranch and can’t wait to have this experience for many years to come.’
‘I cannot express how great this experience was – it exceeded every last expectation I had!
From the minute I was picked up from the motel I was met with friendly smiling faces. Once you drive through the front gates, the realization sets in: you are somewhere very special in the world!
Every day was different and filled with exciting experiences. The diversity of the rides was amazing, including but not limited to creek crossings, mountain climbs and loping though open fields. No two days the same! There was even the opportunity to move cows and calves and ride with wild mustangs.
Every rider was treated as an individual and given extensive options when it came to what sort of riding they would like to do. Every horse was relaxed, happy to work and extremely well looked after. Tom does an amazing job of matching people with the right horse. The staff were all kind, respectful, and went out of their way to ensure their guests had the best time possible. The worst part of this ride was having to leave!’
‘I’ve never ridden Quarter Horses before and was so excited to ride Western. And boy, what pocket rockets these horses were! The first two days I rode Cody, who was really responsive, easy to ride and loved to work. The last three days I rode Chester. What I loved the most about riding him was that when we were riding with the wild mustangs, his ears pricked in the direction where they were. He knew his kind were calling him. Magic!
As for the wranglers, they were amazing. We were actually talking the other night about how they made you feel so at home, and how lovely they all were. The accommodation was absolutely incredible, too – it far exceeded my expectations. And the food was fantastic, as well. I would definitely recommend this ride!’
‘Be it climbing a mountain to 10,000 feet and seeing the last snow of the season, or rounding up cattle for a day on our gorgeous horses, this was an unforgettable adventure.’
