Rocking Z Guest Ranch is a family horse ranch providing great equine and ranch vacations deeply rooted in Montana tradition for riders of all levels.
Anna has an MA in Medieval and Early Modern Studies, in which she received a Distinction with her dissertation upon Medieval Farriery. Anna is also a certified Anma Amatsu practitioner and gives clinics and lessons by request in natural horsemanship. She believes that horses and humans should both have fun at least 90 percent of the time, and if it's not fun for both of you then something has gone awry. She is obsessed with learning as much as she can about the history of the horse, in the hopes that it will be able to make the future better and more stable for horses and humans.
Maria Anderson is dedicated to learning and truly developing horses to their potential. She has already passed her Level 4 Freestyle through the Parelli Foundation. Maria and her husband, Ben, love starting colts from never having been touched and developing them into working horses. Together they team rope and raise roping cattle, care for the whole herd of horses, and care for and teach clients year round.

My cousin and I had a fun filled week of cowgirl antics. All the wranglers were super and lots of fun too. Pattie and Marianna food was excellent and plentiful. Maria provided a full schedule of activities and outings both on and off horseback. We had the best time thank you all sooo much you for such a perfect week.

The scenic beauty of Montana was a fantastic backdrop to an excellent ranch riding holiday. The horses were magnificent; kind, well schooled and gentle. Natural horsemanship methods were encouraged and both riding and groundwork were rewarding and fun. The hospitality was second to none and the home cooked food was delicious! I had the most amazing week and I will never forget my time there.

This is the nicest ranch. I've been here three times - an amazing family, wonderful horses, beautiful countryside. I come here because they make me feel like I'm part of the family. Can't wait to go back.
