"Unique experience! The trip was way more than I expected starting from the airport pickup. Felt like family there. There were great dogs, cows, calves, meals, accomodations, people and of course horses and rides. The three peaks ride was just spectacular. We also took a special trip to Tombstone. I had the 4 day all-inclusive package." - Lynn D.
"My husband and I went the Double R Ranch and it was beyond our expectations. The hospitality from the owners Ron and Trina and all the Ranch staff was so amazing. We met people from around the world! The horse back riding, the food and the guests were FIRST CLASS! The ranch matches all riders with all skill levels with the appropriate horse. They are spot on. Your not just a guest you are part of there family. We can’t wait to go back!" - Wendy R.
"I was a solo traveler and had an amazing 4 day inclusive experience at Double R Ranch. From the moment I was welcomed to the ranch by the owners, Ron and Trina, I felt like I had come home. Everything was perfect. Great horses and rides into the mountains ( with knowledgeable wranglers), great food and accommodation and wonderful hospitality. I came a stranger and left a friend. I’ve already reserved another date there!! Highly recommend to anyone who wants to experience an authentic dude ranch!!" - Christine S.

Background on Jason and this Endowment fund: In 2022 the Jason D. Morse '98 Memorial Endowed Scholarship was established.

Morse placed fifth in the Missouri Valley Conference Championships in the 1650-yard freestyle as a freshman, while placing eighth as a sophomore. He also was the first Purple Ace to break the 4:40 barrier in the 500-yard freestyle, as he left UE holding the school record in the event with a time of 4:39.36. Jason was also involved in the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity during his time at UE.
