Welcome to Kelowna Stables, the magic place in the Okanagan for horse back riding on trails - for all horse lovers from the novice to the expert !
You won't forget the views over the valley!

If you are looking for the place with the friendliest people, the most beautiful trails and the best view from the back of a horse, then you've found it !
Our staff has years of experience with horses and guests. All wranglers are CHA certified trail guides. Visit us on Facebook - we update our Facebook Page frequently.

Kelowna Stables is hosted at Myra Canyon Ranch B&B and located above the city of Kelowna right at the entrance to the Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park.
Our guests often combine a hike or bike tour on the famous tressles of the Kettle Valley Railway Trail with a relaxing horse back ride at our ranch.
