This 1.5-hour Explorer ride takes you on a ride through the mountains surrounding Willow Ranch. This is a great experience for any level of rider, beginner to advanced, as the ride will be adjusted to your level. Enjoy a climb up the mountain for a great view and through the forest for an adventurous and versatile ride on amazing horses. Perfect for a fun and memorable family experience.
Willow Ranch offers a great herd of horses, anything from experienced mountain horses and big draft horses to small miniatures - so there's always the right horse for you. Your guides put great effort in finding the right horse and in trying to adjust the trail to the riding experience of each person.
Once you arrive at the ranch, your guide will take the time to explain safety rules and how it all works out on the trail. They'll then help you get ready in the right gear and introduce you to the horses. Enter into the arena as you're given a detailed riding demo. Afterwards, it's time to get on the horse and ride! Before hitting the trail, your guide will make sure you are comfortable and know what to do in the arena.
After arriving back at the ranch, a cold drink (or when the weather gets bad a warm) will be provided. There will also be time to talk to the guides, ask questions and take pictures with the horses.
The ride is very versatile. As you travel through the forest and climb up the mountains, you can truly experience the Canadian Mountains at it's best. All the equipment you need (cowboy boots and helmets) are available for free at the ranch.
