What Makes Music Meadows So Different?

Our passions are ranching, horses, and people so we are able to offer the personal attention and expertise that makes the difference. You will begin to experience this the moment you arrive at your ‘Home on the Range’ surrounded by thousands of acres of ranch land. When you meet your horse and learn to master it, the magic continues. Because we only host one exclusive group at a time, we can solely focus on making sure you have the most authentic and unique experience possible.

“Music Meadows Ranch is an authentic, working cattle and horse ranch that could very well change your life. I met Elin in 1996 and can testify to the fact that she is the real thing; a real working cowgirl. She “ranches” for a living, a glorious, strenuous and demanding living. Music Meadows is not a dude ranch you visit, then go back to your life and forget. If you want to experience a lifestyle not often understood, then make every effort to get here. You will work honest and hard, acquire unexpected knowledge of yourself, and thank God for the experience.”

“Is a 5-star rating all I can give? It is so much more! Our family will never forget the week we spent at Music Meadows Ranch. The grandkids (5) still talk about working on the ranch. They learned many things from Elin and Rhoda that has been beneficial on our cattle farm since we were there. Sharing meals around the table was like being with family. There was something special for all the family to enjoy for ages 11, 16, 17, 18, 19, 41, 46, and two 74 years old.”

Nicole was in charge of our rides and she was amazing. The girls hadn’t ridden so they got instruction for three days on our fabulous rides! Priceless! By day three they were comfortable with their horses and in control of them. They learned to trot and some cantor. Dallas also rode with us and she was a big help and very nice. No head to tail at this ranch. We were encouraged to guide our own horse and spread out within reasonable distance of each other. By the time we left, the girls had so bonded with their horses that they cried to leave them. We had to say goodbye to them three times over the final twelve hours! I learned what “a girl and her horse” is all about. We’ll be back and back and back. Five stars plus!”
