Many Groups Return to STGR for a Week of Fun!

Friday, October 24th, 2008

We’d like to extend a thank you to all of the guests that were at the ranch last week.  Everyone was a returning guest and many were on their 10++ visit!  One of the groups, dubbed “Nancy’s Group,” has once again created fond memories for everyone.  Many other guests returned this week just so they could join in on the fun that the various groups have brought over the years.  Friendship Ventures, a special needs group from Minnesota, was on their 10th visit, and they are always an inspirational group to have at our ranch.  We also enjoyed having our “Japanese Cowboys” come back for their 3rd year in a row and teach our guests origami.  A few pictures are included below.We thank all of our guests that continue to visit the ranch year after year, and we look forward to having everyone back next year and some of you back a little sooner than that.

Jodi, Sophie and Peggy visiting again

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Jodi and Sophie (Dan & Carrie’s daughter-in-law and their granddaughter) are heading back to STGR tomorrow.  Jodi and Sophie stopped out for a short visit in August after moving back to Wisconsin with Dan & Carrie’s son Jeremy.  They will be visiting for a week this time.  Peggy (Carrie’s childhood friend), who lives visits the ranch about 4 or 5 times a year, will be out at the ranch tomorrow for another month long visit.  We welcome the girls back with open arms.  We have missed them.

For past guests that are looking for an updated picture of Sophie, we have included a shot of her in her GreenBay Packers cheerleading outfit.  She will be 9 months old on Friday. She is saying “Mama” and “Papa”(which is what we have been calling Jeremy), as well as crawling, pulling herself up and crawling up the stairs.  She can wave and do a high-five.  She is great and we can’t wait to have her back for a week long visit.

All Wrangler Positions are filled for the fall/winter season

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

We have filled our last wrangling positions at STGR.  We continue to have Craig and Jesse, who have been great assets to the riding program at the ranch.  We have now added Steve, a friend of Jesse’s from Wisconsin, who is adapting to the warmer Arizona weather nicely.  We also welcome wrangler Scott from Colorado who has done trail riding for many years.  We look forward to a great fall/winter season.

We will still be needing to fill a wrangling position in early February once Jesse and Steve head back to school in the Midwest.  If you are interested in wrangling at STGR from early February through May 2009, please email us at: vacation@stgr.com and send us a detailed resume.  Thanks.  Giddy Up!
