“Spectacular views everywhere, good horses and kind people ! Moose Mountain ranch is a small and local ranch with people who run their business with their heart. After 20 ranch trips in North America, this ranch week beats every other views : the mountain scenery is amazing everyday”


“I’m a lifelong “horse girl”.. owned horses, competed, the works. This place takes excellent care of their horses, you can tell. Clean facilities. Very patient and lovely staff with the beginners in my group. Very straight forward explaining basics before you mount. Made everyone comfortable. Except for the blizzard that proceeded to start, it was the best trail riding experience I’ve had.!”
