Beautiful place.

Haven't ridden in a long time and it was great. 2 hours was about right for these old bones. Horses well behaved and handled the steep trails like champs. Fantastic scenery. Great... read more

Riding in the mountains has long been a dream for me. Today, our family of four took a one hour tour up the mountain on some beautiful horses and finished our excursion with a lovely lunch in the restaurant. We were included in a group of twelve with both experienced and first-time riders. The horses and riders were paired based... More

We were with Tauck Tours and had a fun night with music by Randy Poirer, learning to line dance, seeing the horses, and a wonderful buffet with a choice of Prime Rib that melted in your mouth, BBQ Chickem or Salmon. Salads were fresh. The ranch offers trail rides and more.

Amazing time spent with friends. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Our guide was very experienced and thoughtful as one of our friends was a bit scared at first. Definitely a trip to repeat if we come back to Canada.

We spent two glorious hours on a guided tour through the forest with the guides from Boundary Ranch. As not everyone in our party had ridden before, we selected a beginners ride. The horses were well selected according to body type of the riders, and we're happy and well fed. The countryside was really stunning. What an incredible way to... More

This was a mountain adventure that my wife and I wanted to take for a long time, and we were not disappointed. We found customer service was excellent. They even pointed us to a online vendor that could give us a discounted rate. How awesome is that! We decided to take the two hour trip, which I suggest all should... More

We popped in to Boundary to see if we could book a ride and they had one in an hour. We booked the two hour ride, it was a walking trail ride but as experienced riders this was still enough. I am not used to western riding but saddles and horses are very chilled out. I rode amigo who was... More
