Ride through the true prairies of Canada on these horseback riding tours from a working cattle ranch in Saskatchewan. These ranch packages will introduce you the day to day activities of an authentic cowboy ranch. Spend your days riding through the countryside or stay at the ranch and help with the workings of the farm. Ride where the Blackfoot and Crow once camped as they hunted Buffalo across the vast plains. The more adventurous can learn the ropes tying a lasso, roping cattle and barrel racing. There are horses to suit every rider from beginner to experienced. The views of the rolling hills, the sunshine sparkling on the lake, the golden prairie grass swaying in the wind, a mama cow caring for her calf, will refresh your soul and make you feel alive.
The landscape is a mixture of rolling prairies, open range, canyons, the river hills and sandy beaches at Lake Diefenbaker . The large ranch property includes 9 miles of river frontage. The nature changes its palette with the seasons, from the purple crocus in spring to the pink flowering cactus in summer to the splendour of golden colours in the fall.
When you're not in the saddle, there is plenty to do. Walk down to Lake Diefenbaker for swimming, boating, canoeing, waterskiing and jetskiing. Fish for Walleye and Northern Pike. Or find a private spot along 200-kilometers of sandy beaches. Hiking in the rolling hills, you're sure to glimpse the untouched wildlife and view deer, coyotes, foxes and owls, Golden Eagles and pelicans. In the evening, do what the cowboys do. A game of horseshoes, dummy steer roping, archery or a visit to the saloon where there is a pool table, foosball and darts. Listen to country music or sit in the hot tub under the stars. End the day with the crackle of a romantic campfire and a cowboy sing-a-long.
