Cowgirl Horse Riding Adventure Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Vancouver, BC and check into your hotel. 

Day 2: The first day of your Horse Pack Trip. After the spectacular 5-hour drive, arrive at the Guest Ranch in time for a homemade lunch. Take a thorough Horse Orientation to prepare for your days riding the mountains. Meet your horses, which are Mountain Cayuse ponies that live and work in the mountains.

Day 3: After breakfast, throw the Diamond Hitch and learn some new wrangler skills! Once packed, saddled and mounted, the adventure starts. Travel by horseback through mountain-top passes, experience wide U- shaped valleys with their mosaic of wildflowers, wild hay
meadows and big-game mineral licks and encounter the wildlife that greets you along the way.

Day 4 -7: Begin your day riding high into the mountains with new adventures in each alpine basin or mountain pass. Witness some of the marvels of the Chilcotin Mountains. Ride the trail as it takes you gradually higher up into the mountains, through mountain divides and over high ridges. On your horse expedition, discover the outstanding variety of wildlife inhabiting our guide area. Grizzly bears, California Bighorn sheep, moose, Mule deer, Mountain goat, Black bear and wolf are plentiful and frequently sighted. 

Day 8: After making your way back to the Ranch, take off the saddle for some bareback lessons. Enjoy a farewell lunch before heading back to Vancouver.

Day 9: Enjoy a wonderful day in beautiful Vancouver!  Take the Hop on, Hop off city sightseeing tour and visit the Vancouver Lookout tower for a birds-eye view of this beautiful west coast city.
