You will be picked up by our van from Whitehorse and here you have the chance to do some shopping for items that you may need for your tour. Settle into your cozy cabin and then you will be shown around as you get a feel for the rich history of Sky High Wilderness Ranch and Fish Lake area. Then we introduce you to the horses and give you instruction on how to care for and saddle them. Have lunch in the main Lodge. Depending on the weather and time of the day we saddle up the horses and go for a short first ride. After taking care of the horses we enjoy a hearty evening meal around a campfire. Overnight at Sky High Ranch (Lunch, Dinner).
We feed the horses, have our breakfast and saddle them up at around 11 a.m. Today is the day you will learn to know your horse and start to form a relationship that only man and horse can understand. With every stop, and praise for the horse, they learn to trust you and you to trust them. Take in the pristine landscapes as we ride the ridge overlooking Bonneville Lakes and the Fish Lake Valley. Have your camera ready! Here we stop for a peaceful lunch. Overnight at Sky High Ranch (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner).
Wake early and try to catch a glimpse of a Yukon summer sunrise, which in June is about the same time as the sunsets – so good luck! We get the horses ready this morning for one more trail ride. Take this time to reminisce about your adventure and again keep your cameras ready for unpredictable wild life sightings. Once we get back to the Ranch we will unload the horses and brush them down one last time. Now is the time to say good bye to your guide and your new horse friends. You are driven back to Whitehorse where you will enjoy your last night in the Best Western Gold Rush Inn (Lunch, Dinner).
