La Reata Ranch is a family-owned working cattle ranch located on 5,000 acres of hilly countryside in the beautiful Saskatchewan River Valley overlooking the shores of Lake Diefenbaker.
Guests are treated to a true ‘hands-on’ experience and are expected to groom and saddle their own horse, one that will be paired with them throughout their stay to help create a wonderful bond between horse and rider. With the warm, dry prairie air at their backs, riders will enjoy free riding across a magnificent landscape of endless grassy terrain, uniquely dotted with cactuses.

"The holiday you arranged for us was great"
The holiday you arranged for us was great and we really appreciate all the work you did before we actually booked anything. When we were in Canada it became clear that your advice was sound and that you had prevented us from making a few mistakes in what thought we wanted to do, so thanks for that too!
In terms of the detail, we found that you had got the perfect balance between travelling between bases and sightseeing. The distances were never too long and the time spent in each location, although it ranged from one to four days, was just enough for us to see all we wanted but without rushing. So although we drove over 2000 miles, spent a day on a ferry and stayed in seven different locations, we have returned feeling relaxed and rested as well as fully entertained by the wide variety that Canada has to offer. We really feel that your arrangements were better value than anything we could have done ourselves.
