When we first came to the ranch, all that ran through my mind was: “I hope this week goes by fast.” But by the time we got to the lodge, that thought was changed into “This is gonna be fun!” From the first time I caught a hummingbird to the time I first loped, I never wanted to go. I made many friends at RTR: Rob and George, Ellie and David, Mary-Anne, Jarrod, and Daniel. We had a ton of fun together, from chasing squirrels and chipmunks to playing capture the flag at 9:00 at night. I loved my horse, Mikey as well, and earned a ribbon at the rodeo while riding him. I loped for the first time on him, drove cattle, and I was sad to see him go. Altogether, my experience at RTR was very memorable, and I will never forget my time there.
