Located on Lake Diefenbaker in southern Saskatchewan, La Reata is a working guest ranch with 14km of water frontage and more than 2020 hectares of rolling pasture. Over the coming days, you will help the friendly crew look after a herd of two hundred cows and newborn calves. Work together with your horse and come to trust him as a real cowboy does. (D)
After the famous La Reata breakfast, it is time for everybody to saddle the horses. Take off for an exciting ride to check the herd and explore the property. When not in the saddle, walk down to the lake for swimming, boating, canoeing and fishing. Watch for wildlife such as deer, coyotes, foxes, owls, and golden eagles, while hiking in the rolling hills.
In the evening, do what the cowboys do. A game of horseshoes, learn how to handle a Lariat, improve your skills by dummy steer roping or visit the La Reata Saloon. Listen to country music or sit in the hot tub under the stars. End the day with the crackle of a romantic campfire and roasted marshmallows as a midnight snack. (B)(L)(D)
