Jim Balzotti grew up in an Italian neighborhood in Boston. His fascination with horses began when he was a young teenager and had his first opportunity to ride these magnificent animals. After graduating from Amherst College and moving to the "suburbs", he bought the first of many horses he rides for his own pleasure. While transporting his horses from Massachusetts to his ranch in Arizona, he discovered that stopping at a motel for the night was fine for him but the horses needed to come off the trailer for rest and exercise too. Finding suitable stables, convenient to major highways, became a quest and ended in the publication of the first U.S. Stabling Guide in 1994. While marketing that book, Jim was often asked if he had discovered great places to ride horses in his travels across the country. He had and decided to provide detailed information about these great places in a new book: Jim Balzotti's Best Guest Ranches and Horseback Riding Vacations was created in 1996. Jim has written articles for Western Horseman, The Pet Gazette and has been featured in an article in The Boston Globe. Jim also offers customized travel recommendations and arrangements for the best vacation of your life. You can call him at the toll-free number, email him or through his interactive website.
