Indian Summer Ride


Indian Summer Ride
Alberta Canada

Fall scenery in the Rockies.

Many people around the Rockies will tell you that their favourite time of year is when the aspen trees turn golden yellow and the mountains get their first dusting of snow. We call it Indian Summer: when warm and clear days with blue skies generate crisp, vibrant colours. The air smells fresh, the play of light and shadow is dramatic and foreshadows the change of season. The foothills and lower slopes of the Eastern Rocky Mountains are an ideal setting to experience this natural spectacle. We will take you to the best locations to witness this annual event. Fall is statistically the driest season of the year. Night time temperatures are often below zero, but the day time highs are typically in the high teens and can reach the mid-20s.What better way to immerse yourself in nature than on horseback?

At the beginning of the week we will pair you with a horse partner to match your skill set to be your companion for the week. You may however enjoy trying a variety of different horses through out your stay, and that is possible. You will be staying in our cozy ranch- the ideal place to get together, enjoy the scenery of the foothills and experience western hospitality. The heart of the guest quarters is a large, bright communal space where we socialize, eat, cook, listen to stories or just enjoy the view over the horse pasture.

No other places experiences the breathtaking golden hues of the fall colours as well as the Rockies. Come watch the Mother Nature offer her best work yet!
