Your Dream Horse

Explore British Columbia's remote and rugged heartland on a beautiful horse to call your own while you stay at Siwash Lake.

This lovely Palomino Paint mare is named Pocahontas, and she is the quintessential horse of your dreams — a quarter horse like most of the others in our herd, who all live like nomadic, wild horses, roaming together in large pastures every evening.

By day, they are wrangled into the corrals next to the barn and eagerly await treats and pets from their guest riders.

Ride to your heart's desire astride one of these calm and responsive mounts.
