Guest Ranch Program
Western family Guest Ranch vacations in BC, Canada. Mountain western Horseback trail riding and sleigh rides. A dude ranch adventure awaits. This is Western hospitality with all the activities of a true western lifestyle, and reliable Cayuse horses matched to your abilities! Choose between a leisurely trip, action packed, or something in between.
You'll be impressed with your thorough introduction to Western Mountain riding as you learn to control your Cayuse horse by practicing horse sports in our gymkhana. Our sure-footed Mountain Cayuse horses are from the Cariboo-Chilcotin where the wild herds still roam. They have stamina and toughness, lots of energy, intelligence and a good disposition. Whether it's the "River Ride" or "Eldorado Pass", you'll find each ride cleverly crafted to gradually take you to new heights. If you're advanced, the alpine is just a short ride away with high passes and 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains. Mule deer, Mountain goat, moose, and bear are regularly seen. This is not trail riding!
When you're not riding, enjoy our library, swim at a nearby lake, or play a board game before enjoying the camaraderie of the evening campfire. Bring your guitar or other portable instrument and songbook's. If you're a family group, relax while your children have riding lessons. Guest Ranch packages also include bareback lessons, target practice and gold panning. You'll find our Activity Options are unique: Grizzly viewing, "hands-on" demonstration horse logging and horse shoeing/packing, gymkhana horse sports, Archery, Stargazing and guided fishing. Get involved in shoeing a horse, tying the diamond on the pack, or throwing a lariat.
Tour the turn-of-the-century mining town, visit a mining museum, drive to the foot of a glacier or explore old pioneer cabins.
Our Guest Ranch is spacious, complete with two-storey fireplace, sunroom, central dining room, large outdoor deck facing the rugged Coast Mountains, and queen beds with feather duvets.
All-inclusive adventures include accommodation, meals, horse riding, guide(s), tack, bareback lessons, target practice and gold panning.
For those that wish to spend some time in an overnight alpine camp, but don't come with enough riding experience to head into the mountains right away, the Guest Ranch followed by a Horse Pack Trip is a popular combination.
