HORSEBACK TRAIL RIDE IN CANADA
INDICATIVE ITINERARY *

image-20221213183334-1This is an authentic working cattle - guest ranch nestled in the beautiful Saskatchewan River Valley, along the shores of Lake Diefenbaker. The ranch property includes 9 miles of river frontage. Our guests experience the cowboy-way of life and a real-life ranching adventure including lots of horseback riding on our well trained quarter horses.

We do a lot of horseback riding at the ranch, because there is nothing better than being in the saddle of a horse! Please keep in mind that there is no horseback riding offered on arrival or departure days, except for special requests ahead of time.

Less experinced riders will receive some (basic) western riding lessons. The best way to learn and to improve confidence is out on the trail.

A typical day at the ranch:
After the 'famous' breakfast each morning, we saddle the horses together and take off for an exciting day of riding as we check the herds and explore the large property.
Guests are welcome to participate in the cattle and ranch work but keep in mind that this is not a working ranch where guest physically have to work. Also, we do not move or work with cattle every day or on very hot days. We pretty much have to check our herd on a daily base and sometimes have to move them. And, if necessary, cattle need to be caught and treated or ear tagged. Our cattle herd size varies from 80 to 120 pairs (depends on drought conditions). 

From time to time throughout the summer month, we pack the horses for an exciting overnight trip/campout under the stars – a real cowboy dream far away from urban life.

While there is always something to do we do not forget to relax and have a good lunch break with coffee, sandwiches or beans and sausages cooked over an open fire. A cowboy snooze to re-energize after a good meal it’s almost a rule. Campfires are only possible if the weather and grass situation allows us to!


When we are not in the saddle, there are plenty of other activities to get into.
During the summer months, guests can walk down to Lake Diefenbaker for great swimming, boating, canoeing, water-skiing and fishing. The large ranch property invites to explore the untouched wildlife with deer, coyotes, foxes and owls, and overhead a Golden Eagle or a pair of Pelicans, while hiking in the rolling hills. Or find a private spot along 200-kilometers of sandy beaches with a book and enjoy the R&R! In the evening, we do what the cowboys do. Play game of horseshoes together, enjoy a cowboy sing-a-long beside the crackle of a romantic campfire, practice dummy steer roping, try some archery or go for a visit to the famous White Bear Saloon in the nearby town. But we also have our own 'saloon' here at the ranch, where there is a pool table, foosball and dart games available. Sometimes we just listen to some of our favorite country music and sit in the hot tub under the stars.

Area Attractions
The area around the ranch is steeped in ranching tradition and prairie history. Experience the rodeo trail and the life of competing cowboys firsthand at a nearby small town rodeo. We are happy to organize rodeo trips whenever possible. They can be booked directly at the ranch. Not far away are the high lands of the Cypress Hills, Fort Walsh, the first settlements of the Northwest Mounted Police and the Great Sand Hills, a semi-desert of sand dunes rising mysteriously from the plains. These guided tours can be booked at the ranch as well. Within a 20-minute drive you will also find a full size golf course, mini golf putting course, houseboat tours, historic museums, and a sporting Marina. A 45-minute drive will take you to a western store or shopping malls.
