Chilcotin Holidays

Advanced Guide Training

Guide training saw some new people learning the skills they need for trips out into the wilderness. Many of our advanced guide school students arrived yesterday at the ranch and they were ready to work! Upon arrival after eating lunch, they began right away with their horse riding orientation, excited to begin their guide training.  After being fitted for saddles, the students found their horses and learned how to equip them properly with their saddles and bridles.

After the short lesson of preparing the horses it was was finally time to ride them.  We took the students on a quick ride to let them practice handling their horses and even to try trotting! To the right you can see a number of our guide students in the yard. After dinner there was time to left to learn how to do horseshoeing. Guide training is difficult sometimes, but very rewarding. All of the students did really well!
