Day 1: Established in 1881 this Alberta foothills ranch stands as testament to a bygone era. After a day in the saddle, you can spend the evening beside a crackling campfire or relaxing on the deck. Taste the crystal clear spring water that flows through the ranch yard into a pond that is home to colorful ducks and geese. The main ranch home has two guest rooms. Or, you can experience pioneer life and stay in the refurnished 1900s log cabin.
Days 2-6: Guests take part in daily ranch activities, which may include riding with your hosts to check cattle and horses, fence mending and general ranch activities, as well as seasonal round-ups of cattle. Other ranch options include team roping practice and learning the basics of roping the dummy. Or perhaps you would like to challenge someone to a game of horseshoes, enjoy an evening of fire pit camaraderie or hike the hills and watch for birds and other wildlife.
Day 7: There’s no need to be in a hurry this morning. You will enjoy another hearty breakfast before heading off down the trail on your return journey through the rolling foothills scenery to Calgary.
