Mark Your Calendars: Events for the 2018 Riding Season
We have a new cattle drive this season! The Spring Sort 'n' Move drive requires riders who have worked cattle with us before. We will sort out a smaller herd with their new babes and move them from the Home Ranch yards into the Hills. May not seem like a long trip to you, but because the babes are so young and new to being moved, this drive requires patience and capable horsemanship!
The fee for the Spring Sort 'n' Move is $150.00 + HST - includes the drive and a meal back at the Ranch! Be ready to ride at 10:00AM - DO NOT BE LATE! We ride rain or shine.
We have set the dates for our ever popular off-ranch cattle drives for this season!
This year, in order to come on our off-ranch cattle drives, you must have ridden with us before so that we can match you with the right horse and the right job! Because of the stress of the day and responsibility on each wrangler to do their job, these drives are no longer open to beginners. (We have set up some on-ranch cattle drives to teach you wranglers-in-training on how to participate in a drive - see below.)
Book soon so as not to be disappointed:
The fee for our Drives are $150.00 + HST - includes the drive and a meal back at the Ranch!
Be ready to ride at 9:00AM - DO NOT BE LATE! We ride rain or shine. Ask us about staying over the night before at discounted B&B rates!
Cattle Herding 101 - On-Ranch Cattle Drives

The fee for our on-ranch drives is $150.00 + HST - includes a meal back at the Ranch! Check the calendar for specific start times

COUNTY FOREST RIDES
We often take a trailer full of horses and spend a half day or more in the Dufferin County Forest. We can take two types of riders:
In either case, you have to have ridden with us before so that we know what horse to bring for you! The fee for the ride is $150.00 + HST - this includes your horse and the trucking! Limit 4 riders. Please bring your own sandwich, we pack water on the horses...
