Treat yourself to a great deal! During your stay, you get to pick up to six rides in various lengths depending on your interest and experience. Check out the various rides 9 Finger Ranch offers so you can get a taste before you are even here. Spend your days at the 9 Finger Ranch and discover them and its surroundings! You will be included in the family as much or as little as you like during your stay without having to do the dishes. They are offering you a stay in a private room in the main Ranch house. Join 9 Finger Ranch for one or all three of the home-cooked meals, a daily planning session, town errands when needed, gardening, relaxing, or whatever else you might do that day. You have access to an unlimited supply of coffee and various teas. Let 9 Finger Ranch spoil you!
All accommodations meet the quality standards established by HI-Canada for the comfort and safety of the guests. The ranch is close to Riding Mountain National Park and is run as natural as possible.

The East Room has a bunk bed (double bottom, single top) and a single bed and the West Room has the bunk bed (double bottom, single top). These rooms offer a great opportunity to connect with 9 Finger Ranch while also giving you your own space. You will have access to the TV in the common room and hi-speed Internet access in your room. The two rooms share a bathroom.
On the first day of your stay, 9 Finger Ranch House will match you up with one of the horses. This will be your horse for the stay! They will show you how to take care of it and give you a quick “how to ride” lesson (all depending on your past experience with horses) before taking you out on your very first ride: a one hour ride at the ranch.
When not riding, you get to decide what you would like to do: stay on the ranch or not. Let them know beforehand what your interests are and they will try to accommodate you. When special events are announced, they will share them with you. If you do not have your own vehicle and 9 Finger Ranch will arrange your pick up, one day of touring in the area is included in the transportation fee. 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.
On your last day, a special BBQ will be held in the park (weather permitting) to finish off the week on a great note. Reminisce about your week, all the things you learnt and saw and maybe plan your next holiday with 9 Finger Ranch.
Note: When planning your experience in the park, please remember to add two extra hours to the planned riding time for preparation and transportation. When choosing outdoor activities, please note that 9 Finger Ranch is not responsible for cancellations due to bad weather. Should 9 Finger Ranch cancel your ride, they will refund your deposit. Some activities are not available year-round. Some activities may require additional costs such as entry fees or licenses.

Food is grown in the garden or the pasture as nature intended it and procure additional items locally. Wholesome home-cooked meals are a promise to you. After a hearty breakfast (of course, you can also have a light version), lunch is kept simple, so that it can be to go as well, when going on trail rides. The main meal in the evening does end with a homemade dessert.

Note: Once you are getting closer to finding us, keep in mind that you won’t see the ranch from the road. 9 Finger Ranch has a big rock with the business sign by the road. Follow the path straight through the trees (do not drive downhill as that leads to the barn). Go slow as there may be dogs and other guests. Please come to the house to register and they will point you to your lodging or activities from there.
