Thank you so much for the incredible mother-‐daughter weekend! Avery and I had an absolutely wonderful time. Gus and Bandit were the perfect horses for us. You, your team and all your other guests made us feel so welcomed. As soon as we arrived we felt like we were walking into the home of a family.
The view, the atmosphere, the wonderful food… it all made for a perfect weekend! Well maybe the foosball games could have been better ;)
We will deﬁnitely come back!

My dreams was to go to a ranch and experience “cowboy life”.
Thank you George, Elina & Gisele for making my stay even better than I could ever dream for! It has been one wonderful experience, surely I will try to come back to La Reata and hope our paths will cross again.
A big hug!

George and the La Reata Team,
Thank you so much for the unmatched hospitality you have shown us here. I wish we had more days to spend here, but we will be back.
Thank you for the delicious food, every meal was a surprise and I had the chance to try a new spin on classic foods!
We loved gettng to know our horses Bandit & Silver and although we are extremely sore today. It was the most beautiful adventurous and unique way to learn how to ride horses.
Thank you for everything you have taught us and shared with us!

George & Elina,
Thank you for the best ten days a person could ever wish for. This is a very special place and the La Reata Team and the beau<ful horses will always be in my thoughts. (Ginger and Wilton too of course) I am leaving with great sadness but thanks to everyone here (my fellow guests included) a much happier person than when I arrived! I´m taking JC, Teepee and Bandit away with me in my heart but a horse could never have a beEer come than here!!
All my love and see you next year I hope.

Dear Elina, George, Gisele, Hollywood and Ohio, Thanks so much for making the last two weeks full of good times, great rides, lots of laughs, delicious food, cozy nights at the Saloon simple a great
Manuela & MaRhias -‐ Switzerland (Season 2014)
A wonderful and peaceful place. Learned a lot about horses and met some fantastic people.
Will always remember this place with fondness, Regards and best wishes.
Chris & Lee -‐ UK (Season 2014)
Saying “goodbye” is one of the hardest parts in life. And it makes it a lot harder because I´ve met awesome friends, had the best food ever and the loveliest horse on the ranch took care of me…Cheyenne!
The landscape makes you forget everything around… especially when you have a dog like Ginger by your side and enjoy the view of the river.
Nina -‐ Germany (Season 2014)
It may have taken a country contest to get us here but it won´t for us to come back! This has been an amazing “Great Canadian Adventure”
Thank you for the amazing hospitality, delicious food and of course… the Saloon!
Learning to ride has been incredible. To future gests who get to ride JC: He is a stubborn and always hungry. Oh and smacking his butt will slow him down… (believe half of what I said) Thanks for everything George!
Until next time.
Natasha -‐ Ontario (Season 2014)
First I was a little scared to come back. Could it be as overwhelming as the first time? But now, all I can say is: YES!! The wonderful feeling about nature, people, freedom - that I found here last year - came back. To me this really is a little piece of paradise, and I am still in love with this place. And again it's hard to leave!!!..... Silke
After reading the guest books I think everything I feel has already been expressed. I felt so at home, so free and happy being here that it is hard to imagine to go home, back to a totally different life of stress and pollution. I know I will be very sad when I have to go back but I always cherish the memories of this dream like vacation very dearly. The people I have met here are all very special guests as well as Canadians. I get out of my bed every morning and can't believe where I am. The countryside is just so beautiful. I have never before been able to look so far. No houses no highway no crowds and most of all, no noise. Just the wind, the sun and the wildlife. A vacation for the heart and the soul. I have lost count of time and I forgot all the worries at home. I wish I could leave them there forever and escape, but I know this is just a wonderful dream. I am very grateful for the time I was allowed to have..... Christine
Dear George , Anja, Stefan , Melanie, Bev , Garret & Cara Lynn. Thank you so much for the super wonderful holiday! This is the nicest vacation ranch in the world, the horses are truly the loveliest and most special friends you could ever wish for. Thank you George for the finest quality riding instructions and all the good times. Anja is a champion swimmer and so much fun in everything we do. Thank you Anja for all the companionship and all your kindness and hospitality. A girl of pure class. Thank you everyone for all the great food. It was so delicious and much enjoyed. The scenery is spectacular and my cabin is so cozy and charming. I will miss Bobby , who is dauntless athlete..& faithful friend. I thank the horses for their courage. Life is wonderful here . See you soon..... Pat
The week went by way to fast! What a fantastic vacation it was for us. George , you are a most gracious host – fun, generous, flexible, kind and very special. Thank you for allowing us to share your lifestyle and blessings with us. We rode until we couldn't ride anymore, on the best horses we ever rode!! Fishing was so much fun. Bev , you are a “Master cook” - thank you Stefan and Anja we will miss you. We can't commend you all enough. Give Jimmy Brown and Gus a hug from us. We'll be back. God Bless..... John & Myra York USA
I thought I already found the perfect ranch and didn't think that any other place could impress me much. But La Reata taught me better. After driving through plain fields I reached a place at a lake that just makes me feel comfortable and anxious to explore my new “home” Every little detail of the “camp” amazed me for it's reasoned design and exceptional realizing. I don't know if the “Wild West” looked like this a hundred years ago (honestly: I don't think so) but this is how I want to enjoy it. Thanks for showing me this beautiful place and for a ride which had everything from landscape to cattle work on one afternoon and a wonderful evening and great accommodations!..... Heike
I can't tell you how much our trip meant to all of us, it was all we hoped for, and more. There are a few times/places in life that you experience complete contentment. There's nothing more you could ask for because you are completely satisfied. That's how I felt at the ranch. Between the scenery and environment, the horses (not to mention the cats and dog), and then, the most warm, gracious, wonderful people – it was more than I can put into words. Bev and George are treasures! And the rest of the group – Frank and Anja and Stefan -all of them are just lovely! You are perfect hosts in a most perfect setting. Thank you again for all you did for the birthdays and ALL theWONDERFUL meals and the companionship! We hope we'll see you again soon..... Love Sona, Bob, Jessie
Thanks for a VERY GOOD TIME, with wonderful rides, good food (thanks Sarah). Cattlework isn’t my business but Hasse loved it. We had really good horses, Tex and Chayenne!..... Hasse and Yvonne from Sweden
Thanks a lot for some wonderful days- and nights in the famous saloon! It has been a real western experience to all of us – on horseback, in the boat and in the cookshack! Great hospitality - see you all some other time!! You’re all welcome to stop by in Denmark..... Yee-haw from the Hebor family, Claus, Helle, Charlotte and Michael
We are leaving La Reata Ranch with our hearts full of delightful memories. Many thanks to George, Luisa, Priscilla and Shadow for looking so well after their guests...... Marianne and Hans from Switzerland
After 4 visits to La Reata, I am still as exited as I was on my first holiday here-paradise. Thanks to everyone for making my holiday a very special one, with fabulous horses, fantastic food, great company, fun nights in the saloon and swimming in the lake – for the first time!!! To George and team a very big thank you for making my trip special….. Hope to back for the 5th time next year. Keep happy..... Beverley – England
Once again thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. I must say your ‘Board of Directors’ have done a great job looking after me – even if thanks to Sarah my jeans are too tight and wrangler Ulrika sent me to the dog house!! I will always remember ‘ heels down’ but will probably forget once I get on a horse again. Anyway hope to see you again for the branding next year if I manage to master the roping – guess I had better put in a lot of practice..... Love Karen, England
Thank you George, Sabine, Naemi, “Curly” J, Sam Sarah and Ulrika for the wonderful time on LA REATA RANCH. It’such a fantastic place here, the time was to short and I am so sad that I have to leave……
Thank you for to feel like I am part of your family. Thank you for the best cooking, ( I love your French toast and pancakes….) in the world. The great rides, in the fantastic countryside (especially the cattle drive) with my both good friends Gus and Mr. Blue. The exiting visit of a rodeo, the funny evenings in the saloon…..thank you so much for all! I never have experienced so wonderful, nice, great and fantastic things before!!! It was so nice to meet you all and I hope I will see you soon again!!!..... Birgit from Germany
