Favorite Websites

In my spare time I enjoy camping with my horses. Here are some places we like to camp and trail ride in British Columbia with our horses! Visit the websites and enjoy learning about some great places and the wonderful hosts who run these campsites.  Located in near Merritt, B.C. in the Thompson Nicola Valley Located near Salmon Arm, B.C. this is a wonderful trail riding area in the summer and a cross country ski hill in the winter. They have horse corrals all set up and ready to use all summer.  This is a Facebook page I started for horse campers and trail riders to share and exchange info on great trails and camps.  Located near Chase, B.C., this is a great place to stay and ride from. The hosts are wonderful, the trails are varied and fun.
