Meet Victoria Thurlby! Born in Bermuda, Victoria also is a dual British/American citizen. She is currently residing in Vail, Colorado but decided to join us this summer as one of our wranglers! Victoria Thurlby Victoria met Nowell, our Ranch Manager, on the slopes and interviewed her on a ski lift! Victoria claims to be a better skier than rider, but we will have to find out this winter, as she sure knows her way around horses. Victoria is one of our lead "Kid Wranglers", as many of our families have fallen in love with her while out at the Ranch. If you are looking for a Wrangler that balances the best of both worlds, she is your gal. She also plays a mean game of pool, so be sure to grab her when she is in the saloon and challenge her to a game! As a first year Wrangler at Black Mountain Ranch, we are hoping for many more seasons with this vivacious lady! Look for her this winter at Vail Resort, as she will be sure to spend as many days on the skis and she has spent on horseback this summer.
