We took our 7 year old daughter for her first trail ride at St Mary's Lake River Lodge and it was a great experience! Val, Brad and their daughter Bailey were super accommodating, giving us the option of a shorter, easier ride for my daughter. Brad and Bailey were very friendly, informing us about the area and stopping to take... More

My two sons aged 14 and 11 went for a trail ride during the Canada Day long weekend. While they have both been around and ridden horses a few times, we are from the "city" so we don't get a lot of horse experience. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, and a perfect riding partner for our boys. She made... More

This was our third year trail riding and 5th ride. Every ride has been a great experience. There is usually about eight of us that go. All the horses are fantastic especially Butch. The ride from the mountain cabin has breath taking views through forest and rivers. Brad's family are super friendly and welcoming. They always make my daughters and... More

Had a wonderful time on our trail ride in the Purcell Mountains! The guide was helpful with us beginner riders and clearly has a respect interest in the well being of the horses with whom she is entrusted. She even taught us about the proper names of the mountain peaks - something we still didn't know after 8 years of... More

My husband and I went for a 2 hr ride and had an excellent time. The staff was very friendly and handled novice riders well, providing instruction etc. to ensure a safe fun ride. The horses were quiet, clean and well behaved. The area we rode in was a beautiful treed area filled with lots of trails. We definitely recommend... More

Fantastic, loved every minute. Well trained and gentle horses, I loved my horse Bulls-eye, very easy to ride. Our guide Kashtyn is amazing with horses, sweet girl. Our other guide Brad really knows what he is doing when it comes to horses. The trail was really good and we were out for 2 hours. Great instructions before hand. Beautiful scenery.... More

My 11 year old daughter recently participated in a full horse-back riding day camp. Although she does have some experience riding I thought it was important for her to gain further confidence by riding a new horse and taking direction from others. She had a wonderful day! The group at GOT was friendly and professional. They treated my daughter with... More

From the minute I started booking this trip, Val and Brad Park were excellent and professional! I work at a local school in Kimberley, BC and have a photo club and have done many adventure shoots in the past but never horse back riding. This is more then a trail ride!! This is full on back country exploring! We went... More

Fantastic way to see the mountains and experience tail riding on horses who love the bush. We chose the 6-8 hour trail ride which included home-packed lunch, and later a BBQ steak dinner back at the ranch. The horses were very easy to ride, and the guide did an excellent job in assigning each of us a horse according to... More
