The ranch is close to Riding Mountain National Park and is run as natural as possible. Perfect for small or large groups! The two cabins on the property can each sleep 10 people comfortably. The cabins are located on the ranch close to the main house.

Horseback riding

The next day, you will get to meet your horse for the length of your stay. 9 Finger Ranch will show you how to take care of it and give you a quick “how to ride lesson” before taking you out on your very first ride: a one hour ride at the ranch.

You get to pick another three rides of various lengths depending on your interest and experience. All your rides will be exclusively for you and your companions and not mixed with other groups.

Regarding the CoVid-19 situation

9 Finger Ranch wants guests to feel safe at the ranch while staying! The cabins are secluded and you do not need to share facilities with other guests. Further, they do their best to minimize direct and close contact with guests as far as possible. The cabins are properly cleaned after every guest and be blocked for two days before the next group can arrive.

Please note that there will be no cleaning during your stay but a regular garbage pick-up will be done at a designated spot outside. When going for rides, your group will not be mixed with other people, it will only be you, your companions, and the guide. Further, the ranch is trying to minimize close contact as much as possible.

Despite the circumstances, 9 Finger Ranch is happy to welcome you at the ranch again, together, you will all try to make the best out of the situation and make your vacations unforgettable!
