When my daughter Caroline was 12 (6 years ago) she was taking riding lessons in Vancouver. So, we decided to spend a part of our summer holidays on a horse ranch in the interior of British Columbia. Through the internet we found the Red Willow Ranch, where we spend an absolutely marvelous vacation. Caroline was assigned a horse named Moni always for the whole day and she especially enjoyed the freedom of the western stile riding in contrast to her lessons on the paddock in Vancouver.
Since then we have been on the ranch many times and have developed a real friendship with the owners, the always friendly staff and other guests who we have met again and again over the the years.
It is really a great experience that we can recommend even for non-riders who can enjoy the great food, the long walks in a beautiful nature or can drive to other very interesting view points in the South Cariboo region, and all that for a very reasonable price.
