This visit was THE highlight of our 10 day trip to Wyoming and South Dakota. The guides are so charming and friendly, they feel like old friends, and of course the horses are stunningly beautiful. It is wonderful to see them living their lives in such idyllic surroundings, and you're able to get closer to them than I had anticipated. Two thumbs up!
