1. Anchor D

The people are awesome, the cabins are cozy and the horses are wonderful. We stayed in the Hunter’s Cabin back in 2015  for a couple nights and wished we had stayed longer. In the early morning we got to see the ranch’s herd of horses run right passed our porch on their way to morning feeds.

The ride we went on (pictured right) came with unbelievable views and spectacular wildlife – I cannot say enough good things about this ranch. They cater a variety of horseback riding adventures for all levels of riding experience.

A trip to BC back in 2016 took us to this majestic ranch. The views here are breathtaking – between the Marble Mountains and Fraser River, every where you look the scenery is striking and extraordinarily peaceful.

If memory serves, this ranch not only had some terrific horses and ponies to ride, it was also home to some goats and a friendly pet pig who loved to nestle himself under piles of hay – adorable and fun for the whole family.

9. Arrow Valley Ranch

I was reluctant to put this one on the list because it has a special place in my heart and part of me wanted to keep it to myself. 🙂 This ranch may be the best-kept secret in British Columbia. An adventure to get to, beyond welcoming hosts, stunning Andalusian horses and astonishing views are just a few reasons we now consider this like a second home to us.
