My husband, two dtrs (7 and 10 year old) and myself were pleasantly spoiled by Peter, Christina, Linda, Nicole, and Anja. We had one on one lesson on safety and mounting and postioning for riding. It is quite apparent that the owners are concerned about safety for not only the customer but for the horses as well. They take pride in their work and want to ensure an enjoyable ride. Although Peter mentors his workers - it is in a caring, educational way that both the customer and employee benefit. It was the most enjoyable day of our holiday. By the time we left - it was like we had a new family and we can't wait to return again!!! Well worth the money. Very affordable for what you get!!!!! Thanks so much for a memorable day!!!!

When planning our trip this summer, we wanted to go horseback riding. This was a first for the whole family. We chose Okanagan Stables and are extremely happy we did! Safety being a priority, we started by getting to know our horse. Along with our own instructor, we fed, brushed and saddled our horse. We then learned the basics of riding. Peter and the other instructors are excellent!!! The trails are beautiful and the horses are great. Thanks to all for a wonderful experience!

After several months of be asked, we finally got our 7 yr old daughter (& 10 yr old son) on a horse! The four of us mounted up, got a quick lesson, and rode on the dusty trail. What a great experience! Fun friendly staff made learning very easy. Easily the highlight of our Okanagan trip.

We (my boyfriend and I) spent some time in Kelowna and were glad not to have missed visiting Okanagan Stables.
Christina and Peter showed me how to get easely along with a relaxed western horse instead of an english trained dressage one.
With their friendly and professional kind of teaching it was very easy to have some good experiences with the horse just after a few minutes.
My boyfriend, who has never been on a horse before, was shown in detail one on one, how to get on the horse, hold the rains, find his balance and finaly ride on his own.
After the introduction in the ring we started perfectly prepared for our trail.
We had no idea that we could find, just a few steps from highway 33, such a beautiful and impressive landscape. What a view!
We enjoyed our ride and felt safe and comfortable every second we were on the trail with Christina.
She and Peter are doing a great job and we both recommend these two and the company to everyone.
This was a great experience, everybody should check it out and get some nice pictures for the family at home!!
