Brilliant hack for all levels of experience. This was the first time my husband had ever been on a horse and he had as good a time as I did. The horses are all fit and well cared for. They're friendly - affectionate even - and all fitted with power-steering (rein trained). The outriders are professional, experienced and friendly. We rode through some wonderful scenery on a circular route. Lunch was a superb BBQ of steak, salad, jacket potatoes and beans. Playtime with Horseshoes was fun too. I heartily recommend this trip to anyone - experienced or rank newbie; you WILL have fun!
A fantastic late arvo, early evening activity. We saw a bear which was a great introduction to Canada's wildlife, excellent cooking from Warner Stables Chef, he cooked our steaks to perfection and a very scenic and relaxing way to get to our evening meal.
I really enjoyed the ride. It was a little late taking off, and we were caught in a major downpour on the way back to the stable. The lunch was very good.
My husband and I rode in the wagon. GUIDE COULD HAVE PROVIDED INFO ON AREA, WILDLIFE ETC. TALKED TO ONE PASSENEGER ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY ABOUT HERSELF. It was very uncomfortable. we were prepared for the flies from a pevious review. Our grandaughter rode the horse. most of ride was on gravel. Dinner was edible - not really good. Meat overcooked. Was REALLY not worth the price.
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AMAZING, IF WE HAD NOT BEEN EATEN BY FLEAS,,,, OUR LEGS WERE HORRIBLE... AND THE ITCH.
THE EXPERIENCE WAS WONDERFUL, BUT WE DID NOT EXPECT TO BE EATEN ALIVE BY FLEAS.
