Your cabin will be exclusively for you and your companions. Each cabin (for up to 10 people) has a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom facilities, two bedrooms with bunk beds, a living room, and a deck to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets and the peaceful view over the fields.

Included in the pampering are home-cooked meals, an unlimited supply of coffee and various teas, and of course, the horses.

Horseback riding

The next day, you will get to meet your horse for the length of your stay. The ranch team 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.

After this introduction ride, you get to pick another five rides of various lengths depending on your interest and experience. Check out the various rides the ranch offers so you can get a taste before you are even here. All your rides will be exclusively for you and your companions and not mixed with other groups.


When not riding, you get to decide what you would like to do: stay on the ranch or not. Let 9 Finger Ranch know beforehand what your interests are and they will try to accommodate you. When special events are announced, they will share them with you.

The entrance fee to the Riding Mountain National Park is included when riding with 9 Finger Ranch. You are more than welcome to go back to the park on your own but please note that you will need to pay separate entrance fees.
