Chilcotin Holidays

Christmas at the Ranch - Skills to become a guide

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday? We sure did!

Having many international students staying at our ranch every year we usually celebrate both the European Christmas Day on the 24th and the Canadian one on the 25th. Both days we had a lot of fun feeding all our 39 horses a special Christmas treat - oats and carrots.





Our new staff members were very keen to learn new skills that you use to become a guide so we gave them an orientation of how to trim horse feet. Four of our darlings got a nice pedicure and we a good work out!

On the 25th we got a "treat" in return and got practice our bareback riding skills. Have you ever tried? We had a fun time practicing to jump on without a saddle to hold on. It's quite a challenge!

But eventually everyone managed thanks to our guide's useful tips. He himself made it look so easy! Now we are looking forward to finding out more about how to become a guide.

Now that the holidays are over we are looking forward to the New Year and all it's new challenges and opportunities and changes! A happy New Year to all our readers, may it be even better than the last one!
