Red Willow RanchRed Willow Ranch
Lone Butte, British Columbia

The Red Willow Ranch lies in the South Cariboo of British Columbia amidst rolling hayfields and endless forests. Here the Hirsch family has provided a truly unique horseback riding experience alongside their excellent hospitality. Their focus is you and your horse. Riding on your own or with a wrangler provides an adventure holiday never to be forgotten. The Red Wilow Ranch is a working guest ranch providing an easy lifestyle where you can truly relax, enjoy the horses, join in with a sing song around the campfire or just soak in the silence of the stars. There are many activities for you and your family. You can try your hand at cutting cows, throw a rope, pool, darts and many more. As a guest said: “It’s all there, you only have to take it in.” Come as a guest, leave as a friend.

La Reata RanchLa Reata Ranch

Kyle, Saskatchewan

La Reata is an authentic working cattle guest ranch nestled in the Saskatchewan River valley, along the shores of Lake Diefenbaker. The ranch includes nine miles of river frontage. Guests experience the cowboy way of life and a real-life ranching adventure, including horseback riding on well-trained quarter horses. Guests are welcome to participate in the cattle and ranch work. While there is a lot to do, there's always time for a hearty lunch and a snooze in the sun. Some summer months, they even offer an overnight pack trip and camp out under the stars. It's a real cowboy dream, far away from urban life.
