Old Friends and New Stories

Under The Stars & Fire

Last week was a quieter week and that’s all right! Everyone enjoyed themselves and made the best out of their vacation. Sometimes vacations leave us all tired and sometimes they leave us well rested, this was one of those weeks.

Dancing Under The Stars, Full Moon, and New Lights!

Despite social distancing we know how to have fun!

Dancing Under The Stars, Full Moon, and New Lights!

Every week here is special, sometimes they're full of memories from past guests and other times the week is filled with brand new faces eager to hit the trail or learn to dance.

Serving Those Who Serve Us

June of 2020 is off to a great start at the Black Mtn Dude Ranch

Serving Those Who Serve Us

This week featured nearly all returners, which is fantastic for story time and catching up.  The weather was beautiful and the margaritas were cold at pack camp, a week with no complaints from anyone involved.  Every year BMR works with Vail Veterans to host veterans and their families, last year we had four vet families and this week we had one family stay with us.

Strange Spring.  New Website.  Baby Goats!

Welcome back to BMR

Strange Spring. New Website. Baby Goats!

What a strange spring we’ve had! Yet, somehow, we’re back here at Black Mountain Ranch and enjoying our guests and horses. We just finished week one, which should have been week three! It was a small group, which is great for us to get used to all the new protocols we’ve been implementing in our Covid world.
