  • Description

    Description

    We are a fifth generation outfitting and guiding family. I ride and train barrel horses as well as travel to competitions across western Canada. Our place is located right at the base of Yamnuska mountain at the start of the Canadian Rockies. We run over 100 head of horses and 150 head of cows while also doing trail rides, pack trips, bbqs and general ranch activities. We are a small family with myself, my husband, our little boy and my parents.
