Prince George, Guest Ranches & Horseback Riding
The best way to check out the beautiful scenery in BC's northern interior is from atop a horse! I recently visited Triple J Ranch, just 20 minutes north of Quesnel or 45 minutes south of Prince George on Hwy 97, and it was awesome!
I enjoyed a two-hour ride through terrain ranging from a bright sunny meadow to a narrow, forested path. The scenery was gorgeous during the whole trip, and don't be surprised if you catch glimpses of bear or other wildlife along the way! Half way through the trip we hopped off the horses to take a quick break at a great viewpoint over Ahbau Creek. There's even a wolf den at the creek viewpoint - now there's something you don't get to see every day!
I got to ride "Stormy", who was a very friendly horse. I was a little nervous at first, but all the horses are so calm and well trained that my worries were very quickly put to rest. For those of you who are fans of the show, you might even be lucky enough to ride the horse that "Mantracker" used while filming an upcoming episode!
Whether you're looking for a fun hour-long activity or a 14 day adventure, Martin and the rest of the gang at Triple J Ranch will make sure it's an experience that you won't soon forget!
