So I booked it and headed up to a city called Kamloops in BC, Canada. 45mins drive from there is the Tod Mountain Ranch which is located at Heffley Creek.
But glad I asked to do a day trip otherwise the trails would get a bit repetitive after 4-5 days. Unfortunately there is only one trail as logging is being done on the other trail. And they rarely take guests out on a day trip as it's usually too hot and too steep for the horses. Thankfully the conditions were good for us and so Tracey prepared a pack lunch for us and we headed out for the day with Blue and Rowdy in tow as well.
I can't say enough about how wonderful a host Tracey was - always ready to chat and on hand for questions. As for the wranglers, Steve and Jean, they ensured safety always came first (for us and the horse) and so as a beginner I was never worried about being out of my depth! The herd of geldings were looked after like family (as were the ranch dogs Rowdy and Blue), and everything was provided during the stay - from freshly cooked homemade meals, spotless cabins (thanks Heidi) to endless coffee and great company!
NOTE: There is no phone service and limited wifi (so bring a book!).
