Trail Rides, Tours & Birthday Parties

 

We will meander through Old Growth forests on the ranch, along the beautiful Cheakamus River, and through kilometres of trails. Join us for a family friendly 1 or 2 hour long ride. Watch for wildlife including, deer, wolves, coyotes, majestic bald eagles, abundance of water fowl and if we are lucky, black bears fishing for salmon!

Many of our horses are rehabilitated, some of which were rescued from uncertain fates. They love to take new friends around the ranch, and welcome the most experienced rider as warmly as they do a young beginner. Our safety oriented, experienced and all around fun guides will lead you and your horse on an enjoyable ride, while sharing stories of the horses, the ranch, and pointing out the best view points.

Birthday parties at the ranch are exciting and educational, with two different timing options. Our passion team of horse trainers and guides share their knowledge, introduce our horses and facilitate games, crafts, and pony rides. Children young and old will enjoy celebrating with their beautiful new equine friends.

“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.”
