Bay Ranch Lodge and Equestrian Centre’s lessons and trail rides partner patrons with one of myriad horses for traversing its more than 250 acres. British-trained instructors imbue participants with their extensive knowledge of proper horse safety and riding technique during a 30–60 minute lesson within an enclosed arena before grooming sessions and double-knotting horseshoe laces prep each equine for its ride. Once students are securely aboard, horses spend an hour trotting along trails fastidiously trimmed in summer and plowed in winter. Each trek leads riders through bountiful pastures, natural woodland teeming with wildlife, or on bayside routes flanking Sturgeon Lake. As voyages conclude, customers can warm chilled tongues with unlimited cups of hot chocolate while making snow angels with their steeds.
