BMR 2016 Summer Week 3

Best of Week 3. Last of our early season adult weeks. 25 guests including 8 returners! Brian, Annemarie and their daughter Emily came to visit from Australia. 3 birthdays were celebrated (Kate, Jessica and Joey) and a couple of anniversaries too. Apart from a bit of a little bit of rain on Monday early evening the weather was fabulous. Summer has definitely arrived here in the mountains. Had the first arena games of the season which were hotly contested. Next up….the kids arrive. …

Thanks for all the great reviews!

We love hearing what people have to say about their stay with us – Thank you for our 5/5 star rating! Here’s what some people on TripAdvisor have said… “Just booked Year #5…you can’t stay away once you’ve been there.” “My friends and I are all advanced riders who own their own horses, so when selecting a ranch, most important to us are quality of horses, quality of the rides, time spent in the saddle and adult only week. Good food and lodging are a bonus for us… Black MT ranch delivers on all levels. …

Best of Week 16: Closing out the Season

You know it’s been an unforgettable summer season when it ends with a bang! Our busiest season at the ranch ended with the largest group of guests we have ever had for adult week – 32. Our diverse group included a prison guard from NY, honeymooners from Ohio, a couple of English girls who now live in Bulgaria, and some repeat guests from two years ago who brought some friends to share in the fun. It was a wild week with lots of riding hard and partying hard. It only took a few days for new friendships to be foraged. …

Best of Week 15: Friends, Old and New

We had 24 adults join us this past week. A few were old friends, Jimmy, Michelle, Pete, Frankie and Nancy all returned to the ranch! On Monday the wranglers sported their worst shirts for the annual Wrangler Ugly Shirt Day. The guests voted for which was best (worst?) and Katharine won. The saloon was quite the party place with our first timers, Ken, Faron and Mike leading the pack. Wrangler vs Guests arena games on Friday proved to be pretty popular too. Guests won of course.         …

Best of Week 14: Kids are Back in School

We cannot believe what an amazing August it has been on the ranch! Now that summer is coming to an end and the kids are back to school, we begin to wind it all down with our last month of the season. Week 14 marked the beginning of our final four weeks of Adults at the ranch. Twenty four very enthusiastic guests were the ranch last week. It was a great time with a ton of competition and nights in the saloon! A few guests competed against one of the wranglers (who rode bareback with halters to even it out) in …

Best of Week 13: Last Family Week of the Season!

This past week was our last family week of the summer season. We had 38 guests (full house!) and apart from a short sharp bit of hail and rain on Monday the weather was perfect for ridin’ and ropin’. The kids were amazing and pitched in with all the activities, including washing the dishes at pack camp! Who knew kids would be so excited to help out while on vacation. We also hosted another family from the Wounded Warriors Vail Veterans program. Ryan, a former marine helicopter pilot with his wife Pam, his kids Maya, Noah, and Hope were a pleasure to …
