  • Very special place! Very fond memories of the place and the time spent there.
  • We did the 2 hour intermediate ride and it was well worth the money. The most beautiful ride we have ever been on. The guide was great and made the ride custom to us. We rode up and down the ridge, crossed a fast moving river belly deep to the horses, walked trotted cantered and galloped, saw deer and grouse as well as the most amazing views of the mountains. Highly recommended and we will definitely go again on our next trip back to the area.
  • Rode the 3.5 hour trails at 1pm on Saturday, June 27 with my sister for her (our) birthdays. Incredible. Upon arrival, a cowboy made her a bracelet out of leather as it was her 18th birthday. All staff made you feel totally at home. Mahri (?spelling?) was our wrangler. She is a young intelligent, lovely lady who knows how to ride and knows the trails well. It was 39 degrees out today, and the horses were hot but so well taken care of. They are sure-footed, steady, bombproof horses that have a sweet disposition. They know their job, and know what to do. If you are a beginner, just sit back and go. The horses know where to go and what to do. Just be nice to them and generally don't be stupid. As we were both experienced riders (10+) years, we were on the intermediate level and thus, got to gallop through great valleys and along tree-hugging trails. It was exhilarating. I am glad that i wore sunglasses with all the tree branches whipping by! We went to Bragg creek and the horses splashed around in the water a bit. We had a nice snack in a shaded area and debridled the horses for a bit. Back to the ranch at 5, and i was sore, sore, sore. It was a nice workout! For beginners, i suggest the 1 hour ride. Maybe 2. Mostly walk/trot. This was a good ride for medium-experienced riders. Will be back again! Maria Farrell
  • We had gone to Rafter 6 for horse riding in the snow in april 2012. The entire place was covered in snow and beautiful.
  • We had a great party here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was exceptional and the hospitality was above and beyond. What a unique place. Looking forward to coming back this summer. Highly recommend for group bookings and for family vacation. Also enjoyed meeting the horses, White Buffalo and ranch dogs!
