Western Pleasure Ranch Idaho

9 days from £2859 per person

Situated on 1100 acres of pastures dotted with tall pine trees, the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch in northern Idaho is in a wonderful location for admiring the spectacular views of the Selkirk and Cabinet mountain ranges. Western Pleasure is an operating cattle ranch with an emphasis on taking their guests back to nature. It’s the perfect getaway for those seeking a true Western experience as well as a ‘hands on’ approach to horseback and trail riding instruction that’s personalised to your exact requirements. Enjoy a slice of authentic country hospitality whilst staying in the individually themed, rustic-style accommodation and filling up on the fresh and hearty meals served up in the main lodge. Horse riding may be the core activity at the lodge, but you are welcome to join in other activities such as cattle sorting, campfire entertainment and utilising the sports facilities. All guests staying for the full duration will be able to enjoy the dinner cruise on Lake Pend Orielle and a scavenger hunt.

Accommodation

Accommodations are offered in the 10,000 square foot main lodge, hewn from local timber and offering six spacious guest rooms, each with private bath. Upstairs rooms are themed and have names like Miss Belle, Siesta, Nez Pierce and Duke's. Downstairs accommodations include the Grandma/Grandpa room. The luxury cabins include wood stoves for warmth on cool evenings. Most meals are served buffet style in the great room of the main lodge. Western Pleasure emphasizes hearty ranch style food, including products from beef raised naturally on grain and grass on the ranch. No steroids are used and the beef is processed through Wood's Meat Processing.

Horse Riding

The lands that surround the Western Pleasure Ranch have been carefully maintained and preserved, and provide good old fashioned fun on horseback as you ride along the ridges and valleys. The riding programme includes lessons in the arena and daily rides. A typical day during a stay at the Western Pleasure Ranch will begin with a two hour ride in the morning, and another two hour ride later in the afternoon. Alternatively, you can take a full day ride out, stopping at a beautiful waterfall for lunch and a swim. The horses have a day off on Sundays, which is arrival day.

Children

Kids staying at the ranch have the opportunity to be involved in one of the most educational and fun children's program available today. This program is designed for kids age 8 - 18. Hands on experiences with their horse is the centre-piece of this program. The program starts on Sunday evening and is concluded on Thursday evening, with a horse show, complete with trophies and ribbons. They will be responsible for their own horse and equipment. They learn horse husbandry skills and equipment care. Every morning they will help catch and saddle their own horse.

Activities and Facilities

Whilst horse riding is the main focus here, there are plenty of other activities on offer here to keep you entertained, including hiking, fishing with a local supplier (extra charge), horse shoes, basketball and fooseball. Amenities in the main building include a recreation room featuring a pool table for a friendly game of billiards plus an outdoor hot tub. The Grand Lodge offers cozy common areas. A guest favourite is the great room where guests enjoy the expansive river rock fireplace and comfortable leather seating, The great room is tastefully decorated with a combination of mounted wildlife, including cougar, elk, bear, buffalo and a white moose from Alaska and art featuring local artists as well as well known artist Bev Doolittle. The downstairs recreation room provides a television for watching your favourite classic John Wayne movie.

Getting to Western Pleasure Ranch

Spokane is the closest airport to the Western Pleasure Ranch, at approximately two hours away. Transfers are not provided so we recommend hiring a car and driving to the ranch independently.
