Chezacut Wilderness and Ranch Adventures is a real working ranch located along British Columbia’s Chilcotin River. Here you will find cattle, ranch horses and knowledgeable horseman. If a little adventure is what you seek, Chezacut delivers every time. Get up close and personal on one of their cattle drives, where you will learn skills every ranch hand must have.
A typical cattle drive starts off with one or two days of natural horsemanship to get rider and horse well acquainted with one another. Safety and comfort are of the upmost importance at Chezacut.
After the horsemanship, preparations are made for the cattle drive – getting the horses packed and the riding horses saddled. Everyone is equipped with rain gear, boots, hat and of course a western saddle. Camping gear and food supplies are either transported by pack horses or a horse drawn wagon, depending on the terrain traveled on.
The most basic cattle drive begins with collecting the cattle together and then driving them approximately 6-10 kms per day to the next point at which camp is made. Campfire is started and guests are encouraged to sing and bring along small packable instruments for the evening.
All camping gear is supplied, tents, food and sleeping pads. Some guests prefer to sleep tentless on a starlit night, an experience in its own.
A cattle drive at Chezacut is an experience you will never forget and you will leave with a whole new skill set.
