Thunder Mountain Adventures

Monday - Saturday
Year round

Our intelligent, well-trained & friendly horses are perfect for both absolute beginners and intermediate to advanced riders. With their extra gaits, unique history, great versatility & forward moving spirit they provide a rewarding trail experience or new skills for experienced riders. New riders all start with a complimentary 15 minute lesson in our arena in basic horsemanship prior to trail-rides. Intermediate & advanced riders can use this time as a lesson/refresher to learn some Tolt.

Come & experience the valley on horseback and ride right from our ranch through the lush forest with some great mountain views. We are located adjacent to Tweedsmuir Provincial Park & both the Historic Nuxalk-Carrier Grease / Mackenzie Heritage & Burnt Bridge loop trails.

Enjoy a trail ride with us & then be conveniently placed to explore the park & nearby trails.
