Activities on the ranch


Horseback Riding

Are you ready to break away from the treadmill of everyday life? Yes? Well then giddy up and get ready for a beautiful horseback ride through the Crownlands of British Columbia.

Adjusted to your riding abilities, we will guide you through the endless forest in small groups, from 1 hour up to an exciting day ride (about 6 hours). Adjusting to your daily program, we try our best to take you out on a ride when you feel like it.

There are so many trail areas to explore, so you can have a new adventure every day you're with us!

Our horses are part of our family which is why we try our best to keep them as comfortable as possible. All of our horses are barefoot and bitless. Every horse has it's very own tack which has been professionally fitted, making sure it fits correctly. They also have a horse chiroparctitoner visit regularly.

Kids Riding Experience

If your kid is not quite ready for a trail ride through the bush, we offer a kids riding experience on the ranch, where they get to help prepare the horse with brushing, cleaning hoofes and saddling. When that's all done, they get to ride around the ranch where we teach them the basics of riding while beeing led by one of our Wranglers.

 

The kids love it!

ca. 1 hour: $50


Riding Lessons

"Let the horse choose to be with you, where there is force there is no will, there is no harmony"

 

No matter which level of riding you are at., beginner or advanced, young or old, I will help you understand the language of the horse, and show you how to communicate with them in a non-violent way. 

I offer basic group and private lessons on the ranch or out on a trail ride.

We have a outdoor & indoor arena and a roundpen.

 

Want to learn more about Natural Horsemanship, how to understand and communicate with horses in a non-verbal way, creating a trust based and non-violent partenship with your equne partner?

Swimming / Canoeing / Kayaking

Having Henley Lake only a couple of footsteps away, gives you the opportunity to go either swimming or go out by canoe or by kayak, whenever you feel like it.  All the equipment is included if you choose to stay at our ranch.

 

There are many, many lakes closeby...so many, that some don't even have a name! If you wish, by leaving a small deposit, you can take one of our canoes or kayaks along for a day to go explore one of the other beautiful lakes British Columbia has to offer.



Fishing

How about catching your own dinner?

 

There are endless lakes in our area, ''A Fisherman's Paradise''!

Ask our fishing expert Andi, where you will have the best of luck of catching Kokanee, Rainbow Trout or Lake Trout.
