Sample Riding Itinerary

  • This is an example of the activities you might expect. Please note this is only an example itinerary and our activities each day are dictated only by the desires of our guests.

    May - October After Breakfast head to the barn to help with grooming and saddling your horse. After a short orientation by the Head Wrangler, take a 2 hour ride on old logging roads through the forest returning to the ranch for lunch.

    Lunch will be taken on the deck and after a short rest, mount up again for another 2 hour ride in a different direction following an old stock trail along the creek.

    Return to the ranch in the late afternoon for a cold, refreshing lemonade and home-baked cookies. Relax with a good book or try your hand at horseshoes before freshening up for a delicious 3-course dinner in our dining room.

    Summer Time Riding - On the Riding Trail we regularly see deer (whitetail and mule), black bear and coyote. We also see tracks for moose, cougar, bobcat, lynx, and wolf but rarely meet one on the trail. When we look up we regularly see bald eagles and hawks flying overhead. Our guests love being in the forest trails.

    A lot of the time you can't see where the trail is going and what might be around the next corner. Going out on the trail, most guests don't realise how high they are climbing until they are on the return journey and then they realise how steep some of the trails are. Perhaps the biggest surprise is how quiet and calm it all is.

Setting

  • Public Land - 20,000-40,000 (hectares)

  • Tod Mountain Ranch sits in the South Thompson area of the Interior. We are surrounded by mountains (Shuswap Highlands) that are densly covered with spruce and fir, with areas of birch and aspen. The journey to the ranch takes you along the Thompson River and from the highway you pass several lakes as you climb towards the ranch. We are surrounded by the Crown Land offering us beautifully scenic rides. Our riding trails take us along old logging roads and cattle trails climbing as soon as we leave the back gate. The trails to the east of the ranch take us through dense forest of spruce and fir to small clearings. At the highest point we ride to, we can see across the valley to the mountains on the west. The trails to the west of us take us on wider trails that meander around the mountain with steep drops down to the valley floor on one side and the mountain on the other. Our day trail takes us to a look out point overlooking Heffley Lake below. We are sitting at the top of the hill looking down the mountain through a clearing to the lake which is about 700m (2000ft) below us.

The resident chef creates wholesome, home cooked meals with an emphasis on locally sourced, fresh seasonal produce. Combining the healthy with the hearthy, this is gourmet cooking with a ranch twist. Meals are served family style with guests and staff eating together around the legendary 100 sq. ft. dining table.

A hearty breakfast will be served in the dining room every morning before the rides depart. There will always be a selection of cereals, toast, bagels, muffins and pastries and fresh fruit. To give you the energy to sustain you to lunch time, Chef will also rustle up a hot dish of bacon and eggs or maybe pancakes.

Lunch is usually an outdoor feast, either taken on the ride or enjoyed on the deck. When taking lunch at the ranch, you can expect to enjoy a variety of home made soups or pasta dishes or salads all served with fresh home baked breads. Out on the trail, picnic lunches will be carried in your saddle bags and might include sandwiches, fruit and cookies.

Dinner is a 3-course feast. Saturday night is a more casual dining experience - BBQ night out on the patio featuring ribs, chicken or steak with delicious salads and side dishes.

Ranch Recipe

    Asparagus Quiche

    • 1 9inch deep-dish pie shell
    • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
    • 2/3 cup milk
    • 2/3 cup half n half
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
    • Dash pepper
    • 3 eggs
    • 4oz cheese grated (Tracey uses 2 oz Gruyere & 2 oz Emmentaler but you can use any cheese)
    • About 10 spears of asparagus

    Preheat oven to 400°F

    Bake pie shell for about 7 minutes – you only want to part bake it to set the bottom so it doesn’t go soggy when you add the quiche mixture.

    In a small saucepan, combine milk, half & half, onion, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Bring to boil and then simmer for a few minutes.

    Sprinkle 2/3 of the cheese into the pie shell.

    Wash & trim the asparagus and blanch in hot water. Place the asparagus on top of the cheese, trimming to fit into the pie dish.

    In a medium sized bowl, lightly beat the eggs, then stir the milk mixture into the eggs. Pour the mixture over the asparagus and then sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

    Bake for around 25 minutes. You can test for doneness by sticking a knife into the centre, if it comes out clean, it’s done!

Children at the Ranch

Great for children aged 12 and over



While children are welcome at the ranch, it should be noted that the ranch does not operate a children's program or have child counselors on staff.

Children aged 8 to 12 years are able to go on trail rides but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian on the first day of riding. After that, if they are comfortable with our horses and Wranglers, we will be happy to take them on the ride without their parents. We encourage families to ride together.

For childen younger than eight, the ranch will arrange short rides in the arena with the horse being led by one of our wranglers.

Tod Mountain offers plenty of one-on-one bonding time for families. In addition to riding, children enjoy the wide open spaces and engaging their imagination in our beautiful scenic paradise. If parents would like, we can hire a responsible individual from our local childcare service. Please request to set this up ahead of time.

Tod Mountain Ranch was a former cattle ranch originally owned by the McAuliffe family. The ranch was a 600 acre cattle ranch. In the late 1930’s the ranch was bought by Nelson Lougheed and he continued to raise cattle on the ranch until the late 1980’s. During this period the ranch was divided and parts of it sold off.

In 1989 the rest of the ranch, including this property was bought by Faye Yasak. Faye and her partner continued to raise Texas Longhorns until it was bought by the current owner, Tracey O’Connell, who changed the name to Tod Mountain Ranch, located at the foothills of Tod Mountain! The 80 acres that is Tod Mountain Ranch was at the centre of the original McAuliffe ranch, and the owner’s house is the original homestead. Part of the house was built in the 1890’s with additions being added in the late 1940’s. The structure of the original property, including the original roof is still standing, underneath the newer cedar siding and tin roof that was added much later.

The guest lodge and cabins were newly constructed in 2008/2009 and the ranch opened to guests in June 2009. The very first guests to stay in the cabins were a young couple from Revelstoke, B.C. who were celebrating their first wedding anniversary.

  • Languages spoken

    english
  • The Ranch is owned and managed by Tracey O’Connell, a modern day lady pioneer who immigrated to Canada from the UK in 2007 with big dreams and huge passion.

    Tracey was born in Dublin Ireland, and as a teenager moved with her family to a large city in the North of England. Her career with international organisations saw her spend time living and working in some of the world’s busiest cities.

    She was born with itchy feet. From getting her first passport at aged 18 she spent the next 20+ years of her life travelling all over the world, some of it for work but a great deal of it for pleasure. It was during one those trips that she sat on a horse for the first time – in Texas and her love affair with horses had begun. She started to take riding lessons at stables close to her home in England and took her first Dude Ranch Vacation in the early 90’s.

    Since then, she has travelled to all corners of the world to take horseback riding vacations. She experienced many different countries and cultures, various breeds of horses and riding styles. From galloping with Zebra and Giraffe in Africa to pushing a slow lazy herd of cows though the bush in Wyoming. Always during these trips I would think ‘wouldn’t this be a great way to live...’

    In the summer of 2007, Tracey took a career break and came to Canada for a 6 month visit. During this visit she bought Tod Mountain Ranch, an 80-acre former cattle ranch in the Louis Creek Valley, surrounded by thousands of hectares of Crown Land.

    She survived forest fires and several amazing winters with temperatures down to minus 40°C and 6ft snow drifts. She’s learned to drive a tractor, mend fences, chop firewood and break ice on the creek. She’s proud to have swopped her kitten heels and silk shirts for gumboots and Carhartts and her beloved 2-seater sports car for an F350 pick-up.

    Call her crazy or brave, she’s certainly unique and loves to share this amazing place with visitors from far and wide riding her beautiful horses on old logging roads and cattle trails through the bush and along the creek and then relaxing on the porch as the sun sets, glass of wine in hand, reliving the highlights of the day.
