letter to Gene Kilgore (Author of "Ranch Vacations")
Marsha Lindsay - Madison, WI
for the wonderful time, which completely exceeded my
expectations -- from the accommodations, to the food and the
Ranch staff. I have been to several ranches in the past
and the Horse Prairie Ranch is by far the most beautiful and
enjoyable experience I've had. I'm looking forward to a
multi-week stay next year. Thank you for the hospitality.
Chris Goehrig -
wonderful to find a place that every time out is better than the
last and each time a life changing experience. Wish I
could pack ya'll up and take you home. Thanks again
Cindy Rossen -
had the time of our lives. Thank you for sharing your most

are leaving family. We'll be back next year for sure.
We'll miss you all very much.

"Ranch Life" Adventure at the Horse Prairie Ranch was even
better than we had imagined. Our entire family enjoyed
every moment of the western lifestyle. All of your people
did an outstanding job making sure we felt at home and had a
great time. Your accommodations, food, horses and scenery
were also wonderful. A week at the Horse Prairie Ranch is
good for the heart, the mind, the body & soul. We'll be

I LOVE it
here! I loved the view, the staff, the food. (I've gained
5 lbs this week). I don't want to go home. This has
been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. No
one from home can say they drove a herd of cattle across a
meadow in Montana. I'm so glad that I can. This
place, I will never forget. Everyone made me feel so
welcome. Thanks so much and I hope to see you all again.
Janell Holmes -
truly "Heaven on Earth." The big sky, the mountains, the
horses, even the sage brush...but, it's the people that make
this such a special place. Thank you for sharing your
ranch and yourselves with us!

our HPR Friends and Family, what an incredible week of
experiences. You all know how to make everyone's visit so
special -- from the warm friendly smiles of the staff to the
marvelous food to the beautiful countryside. This place is
truly one-of-a-kind! I am so grateful to ya'll for sharing your
piece of the Big Montana Sky.
Ashleigh Elkins - Jackson, MS
goodness, what a wonderful place this is. Beauty in every
direction (whether you're inside your cabin or not), good hard
work and fun the last best place. We have been elsewhere
in Montana and the west, and this is perhaps the very last best
place! The food was wonderful, and the staff was great.
Thank you for this spectacular vacation.

Time back to the HPR and great as always -- horses, people and
food can't be beat! Can't wait for season 2003.
Wouldn't miss it for anything!
Craig Vollhaber - St.
Vacation Yet!! People, food and horses were great.
Treated like a King. Thanks for the hospitality of ALL!
See you next year without question!
George McIntyre -
one put into words living out her dream (even when it's only a
week). From the moment I stepped foot on the HPR, I felt
truly welcomed, but mostly I felt at home. Thank you all
so much for giving me a week I'll remember and cherish for the
rest of my life!
Katrina Moen -
always been my dream to work on a ranch. This week has
exceeded all my dreams. This is an experience that I'll
never forget. I could call this place and Montana my home
Joshua Hayes -
overwhelmed by the beauty of the country and the class of the
ranch. Everyone treated us like we were lifelong friends
that deserved their highest attention. I felt with their
help I could round up any herd of cattle. Thank you for a
wonderful, exciting, eventful vacation. Life-long memories
were made this week.
Patsy LaPonsey -
by far one of the most incredible vacations I've had. Your
patience and sense of humor were really appreciated. It's
very refreshing to meet such down-to-earth, incredibly genuine
people. Thank you for the memories. I will sincerely
miss all of you!
Sharon Weber -
back for another year at the HPR -- one of God's most beautiful
spots on earth with some of the best people on earth. A
great vacation and a great perspective on life. See you
next year. Your sincere warmth and hospitality make this
beautiful place just that much more special. Thanks for
everything. Can't wait until next year when we'll do it

by far the very best vacation we've ever had. This
experience far surpasses the term vacation and really defines --
adventure! Your more than capable staff can certainly pat
themselves on the back. We'll return for our next
