Horseback in Pemberton

Pemberton Has More Horses Per Capita Than Anywhere in BC

And that means, that when you visit us, you'll see horses in our downtown. You'll see them along the road, and you may happen upon wild horses when you make your way toward Lillooet. In fact, if you are cycling toward Lillooet, watching out for wild horses and cows is something you need to be aware of.

Close to Whistler, but Worlds Away

Such a short drive from Whistler, but a world away. That authentic, natural way of life we seem to have cornered the market on truly shines through when you are on horseback. On horseback, you move at a reasonable pace. You see the valley in the open air, looking out onto the valley, able to survey your surroundings and contemplate what's really important.

A Horse's Eye View of the Valley

The horse leads the way. Sure, you're in control, but there's a partnership between you and your horse as you head out into the countryside. Cycling, mountain biking and hiking are all great ways to explore Pemberton, but it's safe to say that you haven't really experienced the Pemberton Valley until you've ridden a horse through it.

Guided Tours on Horseback

And the best way to do this, of course, is with a guided tour from Pemberton's Adventure Ranch. The Adventure Ranch has been in Pemberton since 1993. So with over two decades of experience, they have the chops to show you around Pemberton Valley from a local's point of view. As they say, they've got friendly cowgirls and well-trained horses to show you the way!
