About Us


Victor at the Barn

We love what we do and where we do it!

Hi, We’re  Victor Ramirez and gia combs-ramirez. Together we are the owners of the Diamond J Ranch.

For over 50 years, gia has lived and worked on the ranch beginning when her parents bought it in 1959.

She brings her love of horses, healing, and the Montana outdoors to anyone who will join with her at the ranch.

Victor’s been on the ranch since 1988 and loves meeting people from all over the world and sharing his authentic Mexican cooking .

Our son Diego keeps the horses ready for riding, while our daughter Carina also rides, makes the ranch’s famous Honey Mustard, plants the vegetable gardens and keeps an eye on the 4th generational family members…Julian, age 7 and Quincy age 5. Carina’s husband, James, is a firefighter in the U.S. Forest Service and takes care of the trees and trails on the property.

Three other important Diamond J members are Sue Butterfield, Amy Hamilton and Scott McBride.

Sue is the reservation manager, as well as ranch concierge. Her own personal work centers on the medicinal properties of plants and the healing qualities of essential oils. She is the creator of a unique line of flower essences made with just the plants found on the ranch.

Amy Hamilton is a nurse who works at the local hospital, but on the ranch her specialty is animal communication and healing. She works with those who are interested in the Healing with Horses experience.

Scott McBride is a master healer and intuitive coach. He wears many hats on the ranch and brings his loving spirit to bless us all.

Won’t you join us for a weekend or for a while?
