TURN ME LOOSE
GOT Horses? We do! With the combination of our fantastic horses, fun, knowledgeable, personable guides and wranglers, in small or large groups, and the stunning Purcell and Rocky Mountain scenery, what more can one ask for? Our guests have a passion for horses, love nature, and have an adventurous side. Horseback riding in the mountains awakens one’s senses. It is freeing and invigorating. We offer a number of horseback adventure options, from 1 hour rides to multi day pack trips.
Kimberley Alpine Resort - Spectacular views overlooking the town of Kimberley and the Rockies. Alpine mountain riding only five minutes from downtown Kimberley.
Kimberley Alpine Resort - Ride our "View the Rockies" and finish with a three course cowboy supper at the Buckhorn & Main Eatery located in The Trickle Creek Lodge.
Kimberley Alpine Resort - A gorgeous ride up through the scenic back runs and bowls of the ski resort into the alpine on Northstar Mountain. Once on top, enjoy lunch prepared by the Buckhorn & Main Mountain Eatery. Then "lean back" for the ride down the front of the mountain with epic views of Kimberley and the Rockies.
Kimberley Alpine Resort - Depart afternoon for a 3-4 hour pack trip up Northstar Mountain through timber, alpine meadows, and black diamond ski runs. Arrive evening for campfire cocktails and a scrumptious mountain top meal. After sunset, stargaze and take in the lights of Kimberley far below, then retire to your tent to mountain breeze lullabys. Morning brings the amazing sunrise over the Rockies, cowboy breakfast, and ride back down to civilization.
Kimberley Alpine Resort - This ride is for those maybe not ready for a full two hours in the saddle. Or, if you are limited on time but need a mountain horse fix, this is a great escape on the ski hill with stellar views and challenging terrain.
