Sarah, Julia and I headed WEST... oh wait, really we didn't go far from home!
KD Guest Ranch is about 21/2 hours from our house~ in beautiful Adamsville, Ohio!
Their slogan is
"Where the East meets the West"
My little cowgirls!
Checking out a few of the horses...
"Which one will I get?'
Saddled up in the sitting room!
Checking in with MOMS!
Julia gets beautiful SAGE~
Sarah get beautiful Savanah~
IT IS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT FOR BOTH GIRLS!
Each day, twice a day, we would tack our horses and ride! It
was a thrill to bond each day while grooming and tacking!
After each ride we would walk our horses to cool them down~
then we always had peppermints for treats!
I had the beautiful Leata!
We had fun doing activities like Tean Penning, Barrel Racing and
some other fun trick games!
My girls were naturals on their horses!
The lodge at KD Guest Ranch!
We rode over some pretty spectacular terrain ~
many pastures and hilly landscapes!
They had a play set~
Dave and Kari Burkley, the owners, have 3 beautiful children.
Braylie, Bronc and Colt
Braylie and the girls became fast friends!
That week there were only 4 guests on the ranch so it made for a
very special time!
The pool was awesome too!
Our Cabin was Pintos Place!
It had a sitting room, and a loft above it with 2 twin beds,
perfect for my lil western riders!
Kitchen area with Double bed off to one side~
A second double bed in a closed off room!
We spent lots of time rocking on the porch
of the lodge, and we ate 3 meals a day inside!
We had one downpour ~ about 20 minutes one day and received
a DOUBLE RAINBOW as the reward!

Sarah drawing of SAVANNAH
Julia's rendering of SAGE
My one and only Rosie~
She has a way with animals...
she waited patiently for this barn cat to befriend her!
Sure enough, the cat could not resist!
Sarah rode SAVANNAH on trails and TANK in the arena because he
was better at barrel racing and cones than SAVANNAH!
SAGE liked to do all things!!
ENJOY THE PICS!
WE CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK TO
KD GUEST RANCH!
