"San Antonio is a magical place – beautiful and well kept, the animals are all happy, healthy, calm and friendly. The work is varied and interesting – poo picking, painting, cleaning, weeding, sweeping, the hours are long but it doesn't feet like work when you are in such a lovely setting and everything you do is appreciated. I stayed in a lovely caravan with electric and loo and had the use of a pretty kitchen with food provided, a living room with tv/dvd, and a bathroom, not to mention lovely home cooked meals every week or so. Natural horsemanship tuition is not included but I still learned a lot and felt very lucky just to be around such wonderful horses and watch Tracy at work. She is a warm and generous person and I will never forget the experience of spending time in the lovely atmosphere she has created there. I have never been treated better and would recommend this ranch to anyone who is prepared to work hard because you will get so much more in return."
