The 2023 season begins May 8 with the fresh invigorating Cariboo Spring. The ice is off the lake and the grass is turning green. This is the ideal time for people who prefer a quiet ranch with the trails to themselves. The pastures and trails are lush and green and the birds and wildlife are active.
Spring Wrangler Week
May 8 - 12, 2023
How would you like to be a wrangler for a week? This year the Ranch will be open May 8 to 12 for guests who would like to join us in our annual Spring work party. Its all about fixing fences, opening trails, piling firewood, cleaning up the tack room, and sprucing up the grounds. There's fellowship, great meals, nightly camp fires and lots of chances to ride. Dogs welcome if they want to help. Cost is just $199.00 per day and that includes food, lodging and a horse assigned to you for the stay. In return all you do is help out in the mornings.
May 12 - 14, 2023
It all starts this weekend! Why not drop everything and pop up to the ranch for our Grand Opening weekend. Meet our new and expanded herd of riding horses. Meet our new staff and complimentary wine and sample the new 2023 Menu features.
May Long Weekend

Our first long weekend of the year is when things get busy and the ranch starts to fill up with families and friends. It's a weekend of riding in great May weather followed up by extra activities and surprises in the evenings!

The summers in BC's Cariboo region are sunny and warm which is ideal for both horseback riding and summer activities by the lake. This is our family period with children on school vacation. The lake is perfect for swimming and we also have tubing and boat rides every afternoon. This is ideal for guests who enjoy the hustle and bustle of a busy ranch with campfires, archery, canoeing, sing songs, karaoke and quiet evenings on the dock listening to the loons.
