Lessons & Horsemanship


Depending on what experience you are after in furthering your equestrian knowledge, we have many programs and instructors to choose from. Horsemanship programs and riding lesson options with Platinum Equestrian (Jordan Wong), Candor Equestrian (Robyn Magoribanks) and I Ride Freely (Margaret Kasprzak).



YOUTH HORSEMANSHIP & LESSON PROGRAMS



Cheekye Ranch’s youth horsemanship and lesson programs aim to promote an early love for horsemanship. We strive for a true appreciation of horses through qualified and experienced instruction and mentorship. Gaining knowledge is the most important key ingredient to becoming confident with horses. Learn why horses do the things they do and how they think. Understand their body language, their emotions, and what their facial expressions may be telling you. Learn effective training exercises to add your toolbox, all while building your confidence!

“I had my wedding in July 2017 at the ranch. They made it the most spectacular day! It is a beautiful space. The view of the mountains to the river roaring. All 200 guests really enjoyed the ranch, and have been talking about it ever since."

“We found everything we were looking for at Cheekye Ranch nestled in the mountains, surrounded by such beauty! Our friends and family pitched tents and parked RVs and just had a wonderful time with us for the weekend. I am so thankful to Kris, Greg and Amy for their kindness and support leading up to and through our wedding day. Just a lovely spot that will always have a warm place in our hearts.”
