She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and no city.

Our Noble Steads

The horses have always been an integral part of our lives at Taseko Adventures. All the work we’ve invested in them from breeding programs, raising quite a few from birth, training, riding, packing, harness work including wagon rides, logging for fences and firewood, to the honest hard work of harrowing the garden and grounds, has been more than returned to us in incredible lessons of humility, patience, and love.

The horses are cared for by our girls Kelsey and Kara who have grown from the height of the horses’ knees to now being brave young trainers and trail guides. The horses are fed good clean hay and grained as required for extra work output along the trails and in the mountains. We ensure they are in good physical shape with regular exercise, free range meadow pasture, and crystal clear creek water. The rocky mountain terrain requires well kept feet and their trimming and shoeing is done by our daughter and farrier Kelsey!


Our epic trail rides and their big hearts!

Our herd is a great group of hard working heroes. The energy and enjoyment they put into each horse based activity are generous gifts of giving and strength. They enjoy the adventures as much as we do!!

We are privilege to be a part of their lives and we think, ‘a part’ of their herd! We hope you will come to enjoy and respect them all as they add to the pleasure of your experiences here at Taseko Adventures.

She had a gypsy soul and a vibrant hope for the unknown.
— D. Marie
Have you given the horse his strength or clothed his neck with thunder? Do you make it leap like a locust, striking terror with its proud snort? He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He gallops into the clash of arms, he mocks at fear and is not frightened; nor does he turn back from the sword.
— Job 39:19-22
