A Luxury Horseback Riding Adventure | Siwash Lake Ranch
|SiwashSynergy™ with horses, our unique and dedicated riding adventure program, is one of the country's best, a showcase eco adventure for Destination Canada's 'Signature Experience' collection.
Unmatched at other luxury dude and guest ranches across the globe, riding amid our enchanting post-wildfire ecosystem guarantees that your horseback riding experience at this National Geographic honoured resort is extraordinary.
The SiwashSynergy™ program includes up to two-full days with your horse. For those who just wish to dabble in horsemanship, a half-day program is available so you have time to try all the other compelling guided eco adventures included at Siwash.
Additional horse riding is readily available by arrangement for guests staying longer than three nights. Those who would like the freedom to ride on their own without a guide or other guests may do so with proven ability during a 7-night stay.
|Come, explore British Columbia's remote and rugged heartland on horseback. Astride a calm and responsive mount, ride the foothills of the Cariboo Mountains through golden grasslands and striking snag forests to a verdant oasis where a wilderness river beckons for swimming, fly fishing and picnic on the range while your lovely mare or gelding awaits nearby. Journey beyond the ordinary amid fresh air and wide open spaces, with a well-trained western trail horse.
Delight in the simple luxury of experience—the power of a strong and steady horse beneath you, and the freedom of the frontier. Here, you'll roam the range as the cowboys do, at one with your trusty mount and the land.
Inhale the glorious scent of saddle leather mingled with mid-summer's essence of wild rose, wafting from trail's edge. At Siwash Lake, you'll rekindle senses and satisfy your yearning for adventure and the great outdoors.
Our luxury horseback holidays feature riding to your heart’s desire, for first-time beginners through to intermediate, advanced, and expert riders. For each component of the Equine Experience at Siwash, a guest is partnered up with one of our gentle, willing horses, hand-picked to suit the unique attributes of the individual.
On Day One, our natural western horsemanship program is introduced by a professional guide. Discover our way of working and being around horses, and learn to groom and saddle your own horse in the morning. During the afternoon, get to know your mount while practicing your western riding skills with your coach at the outdoor arena.
Day Two is the River Ride, a full day adventure when guests have the pleasure of exploring Siwash's most favoured riding route with duration and pace geared for personal preference and ability.
At this wonderful cross-over between a genuine working ranch, luxury dude ranch, and boutique wilderness resort, you'll enjoy supportive and informative mentoring at all times, hands-on horsemanship, and a fun-filled focus on the natural bond between horses and humans.
