Red Horse Mountain – All Inclusive Culinary Horseback Riding Vacation
After feeding apples to the horses in the pasture, we hiked down to a campfire with s’mores, followed with games for the children. Red Horse Mountain has plenty of cowboy cookouts, but culinary aficionados will delight in the ranches seven course meal or an evening wine tasting. My stay was only an overnight, so I can’t speak to the culinary extravaganza. However, I did sample the crab cakes with watermelon salsa and cilantro aiolo – yum.
Red Horse Mountain Ranch – Put Away the Cell Phone
As I watched the 14 year old young lady from Los Angeles check her cell phone repeatedly, I could see her anxiety level rising. When I assured her that there was Internet access in the library/tv room, she smiled and put away her cell phone momentarily. I, too had difficulty detaching from the online world. Red Horse Mountain wants you to to stay connected and offers free long distance phone service from their telephone in the lodge. They also have laptop computers available. While you are online, you can become a fan of Red Horse Mountain or Writing Horseback on Facebook. Red Horse Mountain is also a member of the Dude Ranchers’ Association.
Cabins at Red Horse Mountain Ranch
Hearty souls might enjoy sleeping in a tee pee at Red Horse Mountain Ranch. My camping under the stars days are now few and far between. I enjoy the luxury of hot running water, heated rooms and comfortable beds while on a horseback riding vacation. Red Horse Mountain Ranch has 20 suites scattered about the property. I stayed at the Outpost Cabin, conveniently located next to the hot tub and swimming pool. After a two hour horseback riding vacation, I enjoyed having the hot tub all to myself.
Decorated in western themes, each suite comes with its own bathroom and/or shower. The ranch offers daily housekeeping and laundry services so don’t worry if you get dirty. Red Horse Mountain is environmentally friendly and attempts to be green with its shampoo and soap in dispensers in a nod toward plastic reduction. While you won’t find plastic water bottles in your room, guests do receive logo bottles during their stay with filtered water offered in the Red Horse Mountain lodge.
