Equestrian Dude Ranch Specialist

Saddle up - Lets Ride
Saddle up - Lets Ride

There is something majestic yet tender about a  horse.  I have loved horses my entire life.  Spending summers in Montana and both of the Dakota's gave me exposure to a deep love of both mountain life and survival on the prairie.  In fact I loved the Dakota's so much I named my first horse Dakota.  We had a great adventure bringing him back from North Dakota to Oregon in the back of my dad's truck in the 60's.  I have had both quarter horses and walking horses most of my adult life.  In addition I have ridden on vacation horses in Jamaica, Hawai, Mexico, Ireland,  Costa Rica to name a few and of course in Amman Jordan (well does a donkey count) I won't mention all the camel rides in  Israel and beyond.   My specialty is dude ranches, so what ever your riding level is I can help you pick the right ranch.  So lets saddle up and ride out to the great beyond.

To Rome/Tuscany Sustainable Food Tour.
Our family appreciates Carolyn SANDGREN (Kempf) as a travel expert for many reasons, but the main reason is because she is a Travel Expert. She seeks out the best options for her clients, she will do research by travelling to these destinations as a research-work related fact finder to make sure they actually stand by what they offer her clients. She listened to us if we had any concerns about our trip, the location, the political concerns we have now days, the best bang for the buck and most of all, for our health and welfare while travelling. She and her staff are absolutely the best travel group we have used.

Wouldn’t trust anyone!
Carolyn and her team have always taken excellent care of my family when we travel. I wouldn’t trust just anyone with the most special people in my life and the most special moments of traveling together with just anyone. She is absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend her.
