Old Cowboy Ranch

The Old Cowboy Ranch is pleased to welcome back Kyla Tomlin.



Kyla first impressed Old Cowboy Ranch owner, Johni Degroot 10 years ago, when Kyla would ride Tawny up into the hills, with or without a saddle.  Kyla is a natural when it comes to all aspects of horsemanship, and she has  an extremely sunny and patient disposition.

Even if you don’t have any horseback riding experience, thanks to Kyla, you can enjoy a trail ride along the banks of the beautiful crystal clear West Kettle River, through rolling meadows, foot hills and miles of pristine ranch and Crown Land.

Kyla can take you on a short 1 hour ride. or an all day ride, and because her late father was a gold miner she can tell you about the history of the gold rush in “these there” hills.  You will definitely enjoy every minute of your ride.

In addition to trail rides, the Old Cowboy ranch offers horseback riding lessons for all ages.

Those  who book the guest house can also pre-book all day picnic rides.

Please note we’re open 12 months of the year to locals and visitors alike.
