Saskatchewan: Equestrian stay in the River Valley

A true “escape from the city” experience … a week immersed in Canadian nature living the life of a working ranch. Long rides in nature, meals cooked on the fire and new friends that you will remember for life. Among the rolling hills and beautiful landscape of the Saskatchewan River valley, this picturesque working ranch sits directly on the shores of Lake Diefenbaker; a leap into the past that will make you believe you are in a western movie of the past. This land is a continuous alternation of prairies in contrast with canyons, hills and the sandy beach of the lake. With almost 12 km of lakefront, it is a perfect place to immerse yourself in serenity, living an authentic experience away from the chaos of the city.

Departure dates on request, minimum 1 person departing from Italy from MAY to OCTOBER with arrival on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

PARTICIPANTS: MIN 1 MAX 14

We will spend long days on horseback. After a substantial "western" style breakfast, we will ride exploring the property, checking the livestock and spotting deer, owls, foxes, coyotes and with a little luck the golden eagle.
For beginners, it will be possible to have some basic western riding lessons before trying their hand at some out-of-town outings.
Depending on the desire and equestrian skills, participants will be able to help in the daily corvé, without neglecting a bit of relaxation around the fire or noticing in the lake.
In summer, when the nights are milder, we can load up the horses to spend a night in the bivouac under the stars.
When you are not in the saddle there are still many activities available: swimming in Lake Diefenbaker or relaxing along its sandy shores, rowing and canoeing, water skiing and fishing.

In the surroundings it is possible to attend rodeos (to be booked at the ranch), admire the areas of Cypress Hills, Fort Walsh, and Great Sand Hills, a semi-desert dune that suddenly appears in a valley (guided tours yes can book directly on site).
