Chilcotin Holidays

Esl activities - see what you can do!

The ESL Wilderness Ranch combines classroom studies in the mornings with ranch and wilderness based esl activities in the afternoons or weekends.

Horseback and Bareback Riding

Horseback riding is probably one of the main reasons that students choose to come to our school. We have over 40 horses to choose from and students of all levels and experience can enjoy “Western” riding. Once a student is comfortable in the saddle, we offer the chance to ride “Bareback”. This is lots of fun for everyone!




Packing and Shoeing


Our trips up to our alpine camps are done “Pioneer” style and we pack all our fresh food and other supplies on a packhorse. We show our students how to tie the famous Diamond Hitch that has been used by pioneers for hundreds of years

We also need to be able to replace a lost or loose shoe on a horse. Students are shown how to trim a horses hoof then replace a shoe.




Driving heavy vehicles

These vehicles may seem formidable but after instruction from our staff, we even get our students to unload the hay for our horses off of the big hay truck when it comes.











Wildlife viewing and Hiking

Our location in the wilderness of the South Chilcotin mountains makes this the perfect place for hiking and wildlife viewing.





Target Shooting and Archery

We use the rifles and targets that are used during the winter Olympics Biathlon. Archery is another target sport that we offer as an activity for our students.Both activities are under the supervision of a trained and licenced instructor.
