Red Horse Mountain Ranch was a great riding Dude Ranch vacation week!
This popular all inclusive Idaho dude ranch is situated in north Idaho and is easily accessible from Spokane, Washington and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. It’s a little tricky getting to the ranch but the views traveling on the way there of Lake Coeur d'Alene are magnificent and would love to come back just to stay at the lake! That is why John Elway, Wayne Gretzky and Matthew McConaughey all have homes there, it is stunning.
We gathered for 3 meals per day, there are hot and cold beverages, water, snacks, fruits, pastries, etc. always available in the main lodge. I liked the full bar and signature drinks, or they will curate your own individual concoction!
The wranglers and staff are extremely warm and friendly and as for the riding, there are a ton of options. We rode out two times a day for a week and never rode the same trail. They also offer daily lessons and advanced rides for those looking for loping. They also perform demos a couple nights during the week. The wranglers match you to a horse for the week but if for any reason you aren't happy, they will work with you to find another mount that will work.
Even non-riders will find something to enjoy at the ranch including a challenge course and climbing wall, MegaZip, mountain biking, archery, kayaking tours, sporting clays, fishing, Kids Programs and hiking, plus massages!
