Horse Trail Riding In The Mountains – Adventure, Raw Beauty, Untouched Wilderness
Traveling by horseback and camping out in the mountains holds deep roots in the Chilcotin heritage. To reach the sweetest spots of the backcountry, horse pack trips are still very much the preferred way to travel. For sixty years and counting, the McLean’s have traveled and explored these mountains by horse back and upheld this noble tradition.
Our herd of strong and beautiful horses are born and raised in the Chilcotin. They are sure-footed mountain horses that are cheerful and willing, a noble companion on your adventure.
Unplug And Recharge – Connect To Nature, Connect To You
In today’s world, it’s important that you unplug from technology and allow yourself some time off. With no cell phone reception, you are truly on vacation. You don’t even have to feel guilty about not being available, answering your emails or phone, because none of it works. A Horse pack trip spells “Freedom” and gives you time to recharge from a hectic world.
Nature will work its magic on you simply and beautifully. It feeds all your senses with beauty and health; from the moment you wake up breathing fresh clean mountain air, to the end of the day as your eyelids grow heavy viewing millions of stars, your day is filled with the sounds and scents of nature. On a horse pack trip you will find that your stress levels just fade away.
The Crackling Of A Campfire, Tasty Meals, A Glass Of Wine And A Cozy Tent, It’s All You Really Need!
Our campfire gourmet meals are prepared over an open fire and are delicious and plentiful. Freshly prepared salads, meats, pastas, and vegetables are prepared daily and cooked over the open fire. Everything is packed with us on our steady pack horses.
We also take a mini bar which is chosen prior to leaving the lodge. It is beautiful to get to camp after a gorgeous ride for the day, get your home away from home set up, the horses staked out, and enjoy a glass of wine while dinner sizzles over the campfire. Our horse pack trips are a great way to reconnect with nature.
