We will then assign everyone their horse for the trip depending on your level of experience. Together we saddle all the horses and get them ready. You will received a saddle bag to put your personnel items for the day as well as a dry bag to put your luggage in. We'll distribute the equipment in the packing bag and box, weight everything so we're ready to go. After a lunch at the ranch. We pack the horse together and we go for a 4 hours ride up in the Bonneville area overlooking Fish lake. The area offer amazing views surrounded by mountains. We will set up camp near a little alpine lake. Will give the care to the horses, cut some wood, get water, set up tents and cook a nice meal over the fire. Depending what you want to do and learn their task for everyone. You're welcome to go for a little walk in the evening.
Day 2 After a good night rest, we pack up the gear, enjoy a nice warm breakfast and saddle up the horses. After finishing packing camp and the horses, off we go to Marmott pass a higher pass in the mountain (1800m) for an amazing view of Ibex. We'll have lunch up there, let the horse rest and eat as it is a good climb. It is a caribou and grizzly habitat. In the afternoon will ride back toward the ranch. It is a good 6 hours in the saddle.

<< The Shine Valley Riding experience is an amazing trip, the scenery is stunning and the horses certainly know their jobs. Vero and Pierre are fantastic hosts supported by a small and very hard working team. It’s a trip not to be missed! >>
The experience of true wilderness was phantastic, to leave everything behind and just live in the moment is the best relaxation for my mind, in spite of the physical demands!
