Immersive Horse Riding Adventures

At Siwash Lake, we advocate on behalf of these exquisite creatures, which in turn evokes an understanding among our guests that enhances the overall horse riding experience. In this powerful setting, you'll enjoy supportive and informative mentoring at all times and hands-on horsemanship. We coach in a patient, kind and non-intimidating manner, recognizing that many of our guests, even the most confident, are often well out of their comfort zones.

With our dedicated program, you will be spending much quality time together with the horses we choose especially for your equine experience at Siwash Lake. The process we go through to help our guests connect with their horses is incredibly special, very empowering and completely opposite to most other dude ranches and wilderness resorts. Our guests tell us that they do not want to line up and be handed the reins like keys to a rental vehicle. Instead, they appreciate our immersive methods at the barn and our clear, step-by-step instructions.

Hands-On Horsemanship

We believe that the best bonding comes from participating in daily care and preparations. The morning of your first day participating in our horseback riding program will be spent at the barn, where you'll learn some essentials for understanding and communing with these lovely equine beings.

After learning the basics of communication and moving safely around a horse on the ground, you'll be taught to groom, clean the feet, and saddle up your mount.

The afternoon of your day one with the horses will be spent in the round training pen, in our rodeo-size outdoor riding arena, or on the trails where you'll practice western riding skills and get to know your horse better.

And when you return to the barn at day's end, you'll untack your mount and give your mare or gelding a well-deserved brush down and a handful of horse treats.

Privately Guided Horse Riding

Orientation day will be followed by unlimited half day, privately guided rides with maximum of five riders per group for safety and enjoyment.

Families of six or more and larger groups will participate in the orientation together, but will be split into separate groups of five or less when it comes time to mount up and head off to explore our iconic landscapes on horseback.

A full day, privately guided ride to a wilderness river for a picnic, fly fishing, lazy river tubing, and swimming — while your horse awaits nearby — is available during stays of 7-nights or longer.
