The 2021 season begins May 10 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

How would you like to be a wrangler for a week? This year the Ranch will be open May 10, 2021 to May 14, 2021 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 $156.00 per day and that includes food, lodging and a horse assigned to you for the stay. In return all you do is help out.

It all starts this weekend! Why not drop everything and pop up to the ranch this weekend. Meet our new and expanded herd of riding horses. Meet our new staff and enjoy a restful sleep on our comfortable mattresses.
May Long Weekend
May 21 - 24, 2021
Our first long weekend of the year is when things pick up 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!
June 20 to September 21
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.
Wild West Family Week
Monday June 28 2021 to Friday July 2 2021
Have you heard about the FLYING U WILD WEST FAMILY WEEK? Designed for both parents and children!!
This week is designed for families to come up to the ranch and enjoy a full range of activities such as horseback riding, trail rides and gymkhana events.
Children will also be offered nature hikes, canoeing, tubing and archery.
Evening activities will include fun for the whole family such as talent shows, archery, camp fires and game activities.
Please note: this year children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for all activities, as we anticipate a sold out camp we can not offer day only campers.
Be sure to book early as space is limited and spots are filling up fast.
