Pace

Horses
We have Canadian, Arab, Missouri Foxtrotters, Paints and Quarter horses. The horses have been chosen for their endurance, spirit, and sure-footedness in the mountains. Most horses will be fitted with western style saddles but those with a distinct preference for English riding may be accommodated.

Trails and Terrain
All our trips are customized, using a network of over 300 km of trail that we have access to. Because we must consider a variety of factors in route planning, like bear activity, river conditions and snow depth in the high passes, we resist the temptation to publish a detailed schedule and trail description. After all, this is a back country-adventure you’re embarking on, not a bus trip! The amount of terrain and spectacular scenery you will experience depends largely on the length of trek you take. You will encounter forest trails, open alpine meadows, rugged and rocky trails, exposed passes and river crossings.

Guides
Our team includes a number of enthusiastic and knowledgeable people, some are family, and the rest are like family. The amazing and dedicated people who work here never tire of sharing their passion for this lifestyle with our guests.
