The Wranglers

The Wranglers at the Cranbrook Ranch in British Columbia

The Wrangling crew is the best in the business. Every year Tyler selects from hundreds of resumes to find the few that have the specific skill set required to be a Wrangler at this ranch "I look for people that I would like to meet if I were on vacation" says Tyler. All Wranglers are certified through the Dude Ranch Association safety program.
The wranglers are truly diverse. Their job includes guiding raft trips, mountain bike tours, hiking, and even mixing a decent drink when behind the bar. But without a doubt every Wrangler must be an experienced and competent horseperson. In order to keep everyone as safe as possible a Wrangler must be able to anticipate what a horse is going to do before he does it. This is something that can only be learned from years of experience.
The Beckley Family have always felt that to experience the western way of life you must interact with the people that live it. For that reason the Wranglers often dine with guests and socialize in the evenings. A week at the ranch is an adventure, one that you will share with your group, and other guests, the Wranglers will be your guides though it all.
