Are you looking for an environmentally sustainable experience that allows you to make your contribution to nature?
“REALIZE DEEPLY THAT THE PRESENT MOMENT IS ALL YOU HAVE. MAKE THE NOW THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF YOUR LIFE”
– ECKHART TOLLE, SPIRITUAL TEACHER
On our wildlife tracking horse pack trip, arrive at the ranch and enjoy lunch in our historic lodge. Then meet your horse, learn how to saddle, take a short ride to prepare for tomorrow and review the trip itinerary with your guides.
Early next morning bring in your horses, saddle your riding horse, learn to pack the pack horses then ride out to camp. Scout for wildlife at prime spots along the way. Unsaddle and stake your horses in the wildflower meadows, cook dinner over the campfire and enjoy the night in your wall tent, allowing you to stay close to nature throughout the trip.
The next morning ride out at sunrise to check for tracks and scout for wildlife in their prime locations. Learn about where to find each species and their behaviours. Return to camp for breakfast, or make a fire and cook on the trail. Enjoy a day ride to the mountain tops and learn more about the flora and fauna. Record every animal you see in our wildlife sightings form to contribute to habitat and population management. Remove invasive species and collect data along the way such as grizzly hair from rub trees for DNA analysis. Return to camp for dinner, then ride out at sunset for one last wildlife check. On our seven day trip, you will have two more days scouting for wildlife, returning to spots where you saw wildlife the day before, or trying somewhere new.
The next day, pack up camp and ride back to the ranch, looking for wildlife and tracks along the way.
On your final morning, learn how to do bareback riding, archery and biathlon target shooting before lunch with a final review of the week’s adventure.
