Ride the Range


While we embrace all riding styles during your stay at Siwash Lake you'll be riding the range in classic Western style. And we'll teach you everything you need to know. Our program coaches guests to be assertive and work on intuitive skills for building confidence and establishing trust with their mounts.

It could be that you're a very accomplished equestrian and your partner is a complete novice, eager to try a riding adventure with you. Perhaps you've never ridden, or you did when you were younger, and now you're keen to learn again because your children are riders.

If you are a novice, our goal will be to guide you in to becoming a competent, horse-loving rider with a basic understanding and appreciation for the principles of natural western horsemanship.


Siwash Lake Ranch - Guest on Horseback    

Riding Pace

Advanced riders are welcome to ride at their preferred pace on appropriate trails, and our program offers more challenge and freedom for them than the average guest ranch. Our string of horses is very diverse, with forward moving mounts suitable for experienced riders — as well as those more suited for beginner and intermediate riders.

Unlike many ranches that only allow walking rides, all those while at Siwash Lake are welcome to progress from walking to an easy jog, to extended trotting, and to loping (cantering) their horses — with demonstrated riding ability and when the footing is good for the horses.


Young Riders

Children who demonstrate an ability to safely control their own horse are welcome to participate in the Equine Experience with their parents.

Otherwise, a young child may be led around the barn area and home meadow when a horse and staff are available.


Outdoor Riding Arena

We teach in small groups at the barn, in the round pen, in our rodeo size riding arena, and during impromptu lessons while out on the trail.

Guests who are really keen on taking their skills to the next level may request a private lesson if they wish.
