Really enjoyed the Western music and chuck wagon dinner at the Ranch. What a great place and great people. And oh the view!! Will be back again next year.

This is truly God's country. The name says it all "A Painted View Ranch". Westcliffe overall is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I have ever visted. Those that have been lucky enough to make Westcliffe their home are truly blessed.

I love it here. It's such a wonderful facility. To play and be around the things you love; it's a great time. I love to come here.

This year I traveled over 29,000 miles and showed at 23 different facilities. The cutting at A PAINTED VIEW RANCH in Westcliffe Colorado was one of my favorites. Amazing scenery, excellent cattle, genuine hospitality, and the best ground I showed in all year long. I recommend this world-class facility to any hauler near or far.

Beautiful scenery, true hospitality, excellent cattle, and ground as good as you will find anywhere in the country. A PAINTED VIEW RANCH'S summer cuttings at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, in the heart of the Rockies, are not to be missed. We fell in love with the town, of Westcliffe… some of our favorite restaurants all year! This is a world-class venue, we are coming back

I had a great time and I am so thankful and grateful for the opportunity to spend time riding with Chris Cox at A Painted View Ranch! It was a little bit of heaven. I hope to have the opportunity again next summer!

In 2009, I had the privilege of being the first person to show a cutting horse in the amazing indoor arena at A PAINTED VIEW RANCH. Owners, Ralph and Donna Hood, have done an exceptional job of putting on a quality show. Whether you're a weekend warrior hauling for the world, or someone who just loves to cut, the shows in the beautiful town of Westcliffe Colorado need to be at the top of your list for this show season! The Tracy Byrd concert was one that my daughter, Makayla, will never forget!

Beautiful scenery of the mountains, awesome hospitality and facility, great cattle, and family fun can be found at A Painted View Ranch. Its peaceful atmosphere is the perfect place to hold the 'Cuttin' with Shynia' Memorial Scholarship Cutting, honor a young cow girl, and assist the youth cutters with their college future.

In the heat of the summer in Texas, my granddaughter and I felt we arrived in heaven when we stepped out of the truck at A PAINTED VIEW RANCH.

The hospitality and effort to put on a quality cutting was immediately evident. I would definitely recommend attending their cutting.
