Saddle up and hit the trails at Christina Lake. Either bring your own equine companion to explore our diverse terrain or opt for a guided tour with our local operators. Located right along the dividing line between the majestic Kootenay Rockies and the hills and grasslands of the Boundary Country, Christina Lake boasts a temperate climate for all season horseback riding. Pony rides are also available for the kids.

The scenery astride a horse is unparalled from the view points along the Trans Canada Trail and the many other uncrowded trails surrounding Christina Lake. The terrain is varied enough for every rider whether you are looking for an exciting climb to a spectacular viewpoint or a relaxed ride over gently sloping forest trails which are full of wonderous sights and sounds. Giddey-up along to some of our favorite destinations like the riverside picnic area and swimming hole, or Cascade Falls with its renowned rainbow rock are sure to please.

You’ll find plenty of local services in nearby Grand Forks available for riders and their horses, there are two local veterinarians, several farriers, feed stores, and tack shops, as well as places where you could board your horse.

Whether you are seasoned rider or a greenhorn there are plenty of opportunities to ride for either a couple of hours, day trip, overnight pack trip, or for a week-long wilderness pack trip that will get you out in some of Southern British Columbia’s most scenic countryside.
