About Us

Facilitating wilderness experiences and nature connection for over 30 years

All our trips are based on our Three Pillar Philosophy to facilitate your transformational wilderness experience

Nature Connection

Our horses are wilderness facilitators, allowing you to tune into your environment. But it’s not just our horses. The energy of the South Chilcotin Mountains will rejuvenate your heart, mind and spirit

Conservation and Stewardship

When you love a place you want to protect it, that’s why we educate you on this environment and get you involved in hands-on conservation projects

Personal Development

Every trip with us is an opportunity to learn something new. Whether you saddle your own horse, challenge yourself to get out your comfort zone or share your skills with someone else, you’ll end your time with us feeling empowered and confident

Every trip with us is an opportunity to experience each of these Three Pillars. How you do it is up to you – join us for a horse pack trip, mountain biking trip or winter adventure.

 
 

 

Your trip will be a hands-on learning experience from start to finish. Here are just some of the ways you can experience a transformation:

  • Learn how to saddle your own horse, making you independent and empowered
  • Take a packing lesson and help your guides secure your food and gear on your pack horse
  • Refine your fire-making skills to cook dinner over a campfire
  • Learn how to stake and hobble your horses in their grazing meadows
  • Reflect on your journey with our Wilderness Journal to track your transformation
  • Learn about native and invasive plants to play your part in invasive species removal
  • Identify the mountains and lakes of the South Chilcotins to deepen your connection
  • Contribute your positive attitude and problem-solving skills to our community
  • Learn about the wildlife of the South Chilcotin Mountains and sustainable methods of sharing their habitat
