Our esl program on the wilderness ranch

Many of our students that come to us and are familiar with riding "English" style are amazed at how relaxed our horses are and the trails that they can go on.Crossing a creek on a horse and riding up to a lookout to view the surrounding countryside becomes a whole new adventure. So unlike dressage in an indoor arena!

Although there is still snow on the ground, the students in our April class are having so much fun trying all the different activities that are available here. Riding is still the most popular activity but we also get our esl program students to try other activities that they would not normally have the opportunity to do at home such as learning how to operate a chainsaw!

Clean up at the ESL Wilderness Ranch is in full swing and our esl program students are enjoying driving the big ranch machinery and help out with the clean-up. Although we take our English students on several horseback rides each week, we also get them involved in other ranch activities such as driving our back-hoe and skidder. This is an opportunity they would never get at home or in Vancouver. Our students language skills have improved so much that after just a few minutes of instruction they are capable of driving on their own. Our biggest problem now is to get them to stop!
