Itinerary for Indian Summer Ride



Sample Itinerary- subject to changes

Day 1: Sunday
We pick you up from the Calgary International Airport (YYC) around 4:00 in the afternoon. It is about a 1 hour drive to ranch, welcome and check-in. Meet & greet and dinner at guest house.

Day 2: Monday
After breakfast, you will meet “your” horse. After grooming and tacking you can get comfortable in our arena first before we head on our first ride to Whiskey Ridge

Day 3: Tuesday
A four hour ride is planned in the foothills west of Bragg Creek, followed by some time to tour and shop in the hamlet of Bragg Creek before returning home for supper

Day 4: Wednesday
North Fork is a 23 km loop southwest of the ranch offering some stunning views of the Rockies. This one takes us through the aspen forest, which should be stunning in late September.

Day 5: Thursday
We’ll trailer the horses a bit further into the mountains this time, and explore the upper Elbow Valley. There are more evergreens in this area where you will pass beneath 3000m mountains and splash through the icy waters of the Elbow. Our route will depend on how hard everyone wants to ride, but there are many trails to choose from.

Day 6: Friday
We’ve saved a ride over Powderface Ridge for the last day as a culmination of the week. From the 2100m high summit you will enjoy sweeping views of over a hundred kilometers to the east, and almost as far to the north and south.

Day 7: Saturday
Departure is normally scheduled for 9:30, which will have you at the airport (or other Calgary location by 10:30).

----------

Other activities on the ranch
The trails around the ranch are also suitable for walks. There is a small lake at the north end of the property and 2 canoes are docked there if you want to enjoy a paddle or watch the beavers.
