The South Cariboo is one of the province’s go-to destinations for an authentic western experience. In fact, it’s home to an abundance of guest and working ranches, ranging from resort-style luxury to a more rustic, traditional cowboy experience. While there are plenty of ways to explore the South Cariboo, trekking by horseback remains one of the most popular in the region.
Around 20 ranches in the area offer everything from family-friendly, low-impact trail rides to multi-hour saddle treks through rolling grasslands, sagebrush-covered vistas and more.
No matter what your wild west dream is, you can count on the experts to match the right horse to its rider.
If horseback riding is not your style, most ranches offer alternatives such as wagon or cart rides. There’s something for everybody to experience the essence of the west in the South Cariboo.
