Appalachian Gourmet Ride

Appalachian Gourmet Ride
Quebec Canada

Nestled in the Beauce Region that borders the Frontenac and Mt. Megantic National Parks, and  facing the majestic Appalachian Mountain chain, the country inn at Courcelles welcomes both young and old, whether experienced or novice riders, and their non-equestrian companions. The warm, family-oriented atmosphere is perfect for an exhilarating equestrian sojourn. Mounted on Quarter Horses, Appaloosas and Canadians, riders penetrate into nature that is still pristine and wild. Mountain ridges, wide lakes and rivers accentuate the forested landscape. This being the territory of the “Jarrets Noirs” (black legs), today’s French Canadian resident is still deeply attached to early heritage. A largely agricultural area, here one finds Quebec’s “gold”, the maple groves and their sugar cabins.

Cross the Appalachian hills, visit  crystal clean freshwater lakes, visit maple syrup shacks and refineries - while being pampered at night. Each day will take you into a different area on horseback with lunch stops enroute. Ride across the farmlands and wide open spaces on your way up high into the Appalachian Mountains with its breathtaking vistas.
In the evenings a charming country inn awaits you with excellent cuisine, and personal service. Your pallets will be pleased with the meals that consist of homegrown vegetables,  homemade "Duck Foie Gras", Buffalo steaks, venison and poultry
