I went to BC with my 3 kids and booked white water rafting, zip lining, whale watching but had a hard time booking horse back riding.
I saw all the reviews for the other horse back riding in Pemberton.
I knew my 2 daughters who had gone to horse back riding camp would not be happy with just walking through a trail.
I kept searching and found Adventure in Horseback riding and called.
I spoke to Bob.
He told me he'd have my son and I cantering before the end of the trip.
I could tell right away that this was a much more personalized trip.
I booked with Bob and followed up about 2wks before I left.
We were early so we just headed to the farm. My kids fed the horses and played with the 2 dogs.
What struck me right away was this was a small farm with very well kept horses (of course great BC scenery).
I'm terrible with names but ... Anna(I think) greeted us.
She took out 5 horses and my kids helped brush them down to get them ready for the ride.
She matched the horses with the riders.
She helped each of us mount the horse and adjusted all the straps.
It took about 5-10min to get to the trail.
For all of you people who reviewed the other trips other than Adventures in HB and said all you did was walk, we were trotting within 5-10min. cantering in 15min.
Anna gave us quite the ride.
We stopped part way for a great scenic photo opp.
The trip was great. We did go on a trail through the forest and crossed a stream but it was more about the riding.
This was exactly what my kids wanted.
The trip took about 1hr 50min and time depends on how fast you ride.
The trail is what it is but I can tell you my kids had a ball.
I don't have a single bad thing to say.
Exactly what everyone wrote they wanted on a horse back riding trip but didn't get at the other riding places, we got it here.
In fact we asked to slow down a bit and Anna catered the ride to us.
We missed Bob on this ride as he was off celebrating his B-day (Happy 65th Bob).
I highly recommend Adventures in HB.
Your ride is tailored to you and you have a say in the kind of ride you go on.
I hadn't been on a horse in 30yrs. and I loved it.
This is the only place I would ride with on my next visit to BC.
Thank you Bob and thank you Anna(I really hope I haven't been making a mistake on your name).
Just an FYI. This is a farm. They don't have credit card machines so bring cash (I learned the hard way).
They will supply the helmets even though my youngest daughter brought her own with.
