Rancho La Ponderosa has been elected two consecutive years Tour of The Season By Princess Cruise Line… "Attention Management of Rancho La Ponderosa, I would like to express my gratitude for the wonderful experience I had horseback riding, on January 14th, my birthday. Everything was amazing. The horse I rode was beautiful and well mannered. Jelle, our guide, was an excellent instructor. I was the only one in my group who was not familiar with riding, and he made me feel very comfortable by staying nearby, giving me pointers, and having great conversation. The trails and scenery were engaging and breathtaking! Transportation to and from the timeshare was very convenient, also. It's snowing in New York, as I write to you, and the memory of horseback riding at your ranch warms my soul! With deepest appreciation, Vicki Cianfaglione".
