Early Summer at Red Horse Mountain Ranch
Adventure & Relaxation ~ A Great Ranch Vacation
- Early Summer Weeks begin in May. For years Red Horse Mountain Ranch has been well known for its Kids Program and amazing family adventures. A week at the ranch is full of energy and excitement. Before the little buckaroos take over the ranch for the summer, there are a few early summer weeks for adults, friends, couples, and families with older kids (ages 11 and up). Everything at the ranch is in full swing except for our summer Kids Programs.
Horse hooves thunder through the valley. Misted mornings of dense fog lift to clear blue skies and the ranch awakens with wildflowers. The morning blessings of a warm cup of coffee ready you for today’s upcoming adventures. The foothills of the Rockies are beginning to release their snow peaks and a chorus of songbirds remind us summer is not far off. Our wranglers and ranch hands will bless you with the simple hospitality of a premier Idaho ranch. The Early Summer adult weeks (ages 11 and up) begin our summer ranch vacations and it’s the perfect all-inclusive dude ranch experience for couples, singles, and friends.

A perfect stay for Singles, Couples, Friends, and Families with Young Adults
- Couples and friends have an absolutely wonderful week on the ranch, but we sometimes take calls about folks traveling alone; they wonder if the ranch is the right choice. So far, it’s always been the right fit. By the time our first dinner is over you’ll have met almost 20 staff and quite a few of our guests. You’ll quickly find that any feeling of being lonely would not be possible. Now, if solitude is what you desire, it’s certainly available. And you’ll feel very safe and comfortable in our western atmosphere.
- You’ll all be delighted with chef prepared meals, enjoy a wide range of guided adventure, have your own horse and saddle for the week, and be tucked away each night in a monstrous pillow topped bed. Adult weeks are perfect for all adult travelers. Each evening the lodge will be filled with conversation and festive atmosphere. As the night progresses, enjoy our evening entertainment programs, just sit back and relax, or maybe soak in a hot tub under the stars!
There are a few expectations you should have while being on the ranch. You’ll most likely meet and make new friends in our safe environment. Our ranch is designed to encourage hanging out, sitting together at dinner, and socializing around a campfire. You should expect friendly faces from the moment you arrive. Solitude is always available, and finding a quiet moment won’t be hard to do, if that’s what you’re after.
What’s Included in our Ranch Vacation Package?
- Guided Adventures and Horseback Riding
Each day on the ranch, riders will have at least two opportunities for western-style horseback riding during your vacation. Before you arrive you will be scheduled with a horse and saddle for your entire stay based on your riding preferences. Your horse will be chosen for you based on the information you have provided on your Activity Form. Horseback riding is exhilarating and there are rides scheduled throughout the week for all types of riding levels. All horseback rides will be leaving the valley floor to unique vistas, viewpoints, or peaks, except for some of the younger children. Advanced and beginner riding are available. Advanced riders must complete a riding test in our arena, allowing us to see your ability to control the horse and make sure you and your horse are a good match.
Rustic Luxury Accommodations
Guests staying during their dude ranch vacations have always commented on feeling at home in any ofour 20 private suites designed to keep our guests comfortable and cozy. Lodging options include everything from one bedroom suites to four bedroom authentic log cabins. Plenty of western flavor, comfort, and tasteful decorations will make you truly feel like you’re home away from home. Each accommodation includes full private bathrooms with plush towels, shampoo, conditioner, hand lotion and other items to make you feel welcomed. Sit outside in the companionship of a good book on your own private deck with wonderful views of the ranch.
