Chilcotin Holidays

Dude ranch vacation and spring break getaway

George's first time galloping
Last weekend we welcomed our first guests for this season. They got to enjoying the beautiful weather and after a horse riding orientation all of them were keen on riding up the mountains. For their dude ranch vacation we took them up the steep trail to Lover's Bluff from where you have an amazing view over the Shulaps Mountain Range and the nearby Carpenter Lake.

But that wasn't all, after returning from their trip our guests wanted to learn more about horses and try out the faster movements. In the bush and especially in difficult terrain we never canter, as it would not be in the interest of our horses who have to watch their steps and would tire out more easily.


But as the ranch is a safe environment and offers flat pastures to gallop on, we we more than happy to let our guests experience the rush and make them feel like real cowgirls or cowboys.

Embracing all the opportunities they could fit in into their dude ranch vacation, the groups also got tor try their hands at pruning, trimming horse hooves, driving our backhoe to move the hay and then rolling it by hand. On their last day they even were lucky enough to see 13 Big Horn Sheep and 2 Mountain Goats on their Wildlife Viewing Trip. Watching wildlife in their natural habitat is surely one of the best ways to connect with nature.
