Horseback Adventure Week – August 23-28, 2020

Horseback Adventure Week – August 23-28, 2020

Enjoy a week on horseback exploring the Kootenay River valley.

August 23-28, 2020

Spend a beautiful week in the Canadian Rocky Mountains on the back of a horse. How much better can it get? This weeklong camp is a combination of an in-cabin adventure with one night of camping. It is a week that is perfect for most skill levels- if you have never ridden a horse before or had a horse in the past. We can cater to your needs.

The first morning you will take time to meet the horses and do a little ground work with them before hitting the trails.The daily rides will slowly grow longer as you break into your saddle. The longest day is the overnight to the camp spot. Each day will take you to different areas of the Nipika trail system gaining confidence and seeing new sights each time you are out.

All meals and accommodation are included in shared family-style cabins. Enjoy evenings hearing stories of guiding through the valley from George Tegart whose family has worked the area for many generations.

Group size is a minimum of four people to a maximum of six. Children 12 and older are welcome, if they have previous riding experience.

We do ask that guests be in good health and have no issues with balance. Weight restriction  (max 225 pounds/102kg) does apply to this program to ensure the health of our animals.
