What Our Guests Are Saying:

Hello, Western Pleasure!!!

I just wanted to thank you for the absolutely WONDERFUL vacation I had at your ranch. It was by far one of the BEST ranches I have visited–your staff was exceptional, your facilities beautiful, and your horses were amongst the finest, kindest, and well-trained animals I have ever ridden!!! I would recommend your place to anyone who would like a great western vacation. I have nothing but good things to say to anyone who asks how my trip was. Thank you again for doing what you do so well!!!

Hope to re-visit soon!!!

Dear Janice and Roley and Ranch family,

We want to thank you again for the wonderful time we had with all of you. The ranch is awesome and has such beautiful surroundings. The wranglers were great and the food was also wonderful. The accommodations worked beautifully. Each family enjoyed having their own cabin so they were able to have some of their own family time. Everything about the ranch is warm and comfortable and the hospitality is superb. The weather was about as good as it could get and we enjoyed all the fun different events. As I said before, it really couldn’t have been a more perfect anniversary celebration with all our family together enjoying Western Pleasure Ranch!

Janice, Roley, and everyone else,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful stay we had at your ranch last week. Although my tan is starting to fade under the fluorescent lights of work, the memories of our week (and especially my loping ride) are sustaining me. From start to finish we had a perfect stay. The accommodations were beautiful and perfectly situated to keep our family happy. The food was plentiful and delicious and the riding was outstanding. I even need to compliment you on your choice of guests! Having such a small group there really fostered great friendships that I hope will last beyond this summer. All in all, I’d recommend your ranch to anyone and hope we have an opportunity to visit again in the future.

Wonderful all around!
We just got back from 4 days at the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch and the pleasure was all ours. What a wonderful place. Janice and Roley are gracious hosts, as are their two talented children. The lodge and cabin were beautiful and the food was terrific. The riding was outstanding. The wranglers led us through beautiful terrain on well-trained horses. We even got to try herding a few errant cows. My only complaint was that our stay was too short. We received the royal treatment and I can’t wait to get back. Thank you!!

We had the most amazing family reunion experience here. The owners and staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and completely spoiled. The meals were homemade, healthy, and delicious!
My three boys loved the wide-open space to run and play. There are also lots of beautiful trails and mountain bikes to borrow, an awesome playground, hot tub, archery, and of course— the animals! The horse ride is something they will never forget. The most gentle and well-behaved horses and sweet-natured dogs! We hope to be back!

I LOVE WPGR!!! They take great care of their horses and their guests. We stayed in the Meadow cabin and it was just beautiful. The bed was like sleeping on a fluffy white cloud. I usually like a firm mattress, but this was heavenly. The food was amazing!!! The grounds are beautiful. We met a lot of really nice people. The entire staff was super friendly. The wranglers Liz, Emma, Barb, and Kim were super nice and helpful. Danielle, the daughter of the owner is an amazing horse person and does a great job with the kid's program. Their son, Isaac, taught some of us how to skeet shoot. I never shot a gun before and I was nervous. He was just wonderful and I felt very safe. He's very good, shot every target. I didn't shoot a single one, but it was fun to try.
They really know their horses too and they're wonderful riders. They've been riding horses since they were born. Every wrangler was an expert rider and kept everyone safe. The horses have excellent ground manners and are just so good. I got such a kick out of seeing the little kids with these gentle giants. Horses were definitely matched to meet each person's needs. My horse, Magnum was so sweet and wonderful.
If you really want to relax this is the place. If you want a place the entire family can enjoy, this is the place. They have a big yard with lots of games for the kids and wonderful dogs to play with. The 2 cats, Hank and Claude are sooooooo sweet and friendly.
Thank you, Janice and Roley for opening your home to all of us, it's a very special place.
