See the Fall Colours on Horseback at Sturgeon River Ranch

October 03, 20232 min read

As the summer season comes to a close, the air becomes crisper, and the leaves on the trees begin to change into vibrant hues of red, orange, and yellow. The fall season is a breathtaking time of year, and there's no better way to take in the beauty of the changing leaves than on horseback at Sturgeon River Ranch in Saskatchewan.

Sturgeon River Ranch is located in the heart of Saskatchewan and is home to over 900 acres of rolling hills, dense forests, and meandering rivers. This stunning landscape provides the perfect backdrop for a fall horseback ride, with endless opportunities to soak in the beauty of the season.

As you set out on your ride, you'll be surrounded by a kaleidoscope of colours as the leaves crunch beneath the hooves of your trusty steed. The trees overhead will create a colourful canopy that filters the light and creates a warm, welcoming atmosphere. You'll feel completely immersed in nature, as the fresh air fills your lungs and the sounds of the forest surround you.

Riding horses in cooler weather can be an incredibly enjoyable experience. As the temperature drops, the air becomes crisp and refreshing, providing a welcome relief from the heat of the summer months. Horses tend to be more energetic and alert in cooler weather too. The changing colours of the leaves and the stunning scenery of autumn only add to the beauty of the experience. Additionally, the cooler weather allows for comfortable clothing options such as jackets and boots, making the ride more comfortable overall. The cooler weather also means fewer insects, providing a more peaceful ride without the annoyance of flies, mosquitoes or the dreaded Saskatchewan horsefly. All in all, riding horses in slightly cooler weather is a wonderful way to connect with nature and enjoy the beauty of the season.

As you make your way through the ranch, you'll encounter a variety of wildlife that call Sturgeon River Ranch home. You may spot white-tailed deer, elk, moose or even a bison, as they forage for food and prepare for the winter months ahead. You'll also have the opportunity to see a variety of Saskatchewan bird species.

Throughout your ride, you'll be accompanied by an experienced guide who will lead you through the trails and provide you with interesting facts about the ranch and the surrounding area. You'll learn about the history of the ranch, its wildlife, and its natural resources, providing you with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the beauty that surrounds you.

After your ride, you can relax and warm up in the cozy ranch lodge, where you can enjoy a hot drink and share stories with fellow riders about your experience. You'll leave Sturgeon River Ranch feeling rejuvenated and inspired, with memories that will last a lifetime.

See you on the wild side!
