James Creek Ranch
Camps at the James Creek Ranch
Nestled in a secluded valley at the base of the Cascades Mountain Range outside Merritt, British Columbia, James Creek Ranch is an example of Mother Nature at her finest. Situated on 600 spectacular acres, the James Creek slowly meanders its way across the ranch, keeping pastures green and lush. The James Creek Ranch, coupled with the Jonathan Field Horsemanship Program, offers a horsemanship experience like no other.
Camps at the James Creek Ranch are the ultimate opportunity to completely immerse yourself in developing your horsemanship. This ranch offers an open, more challenging environment where you can learn the practical application of the Field Horsemanship Program. Your experiences and education venture far outside an arena. These camps are highly purpose-oriented experiences for you and your horse, framed by a magnificent horizon of fenced pastures, open meadows and beautiful trails.
Riders at the camps are invited to stay at the ranch and can bring their camper, trailer or tent. With a shower house and fully equipped rider's lodge on site, evenings are spent visiting with friends, hanging around the campfire, talking about horses and how your day went, and maybe even singing a cowboy song or two. Your horse will be comfortable and at ease in one of the individual pens, spaced 10 feet away from his closest new friend. Options include a home cooked dinner each evening of the camp.
James Creek Ranch Camps are not open to spectators, but riders are welcome to bring a spouse for a small additional charge. Spouses are invited to observe each day and join us at meal times.

“It was two years ago that I was introduced to this program and dreamed that I would one day come to the James Creek Ranch and ride in Course 4. Having been here I can say that it was more than I ever dreamed and beyond my wildest expectations! Thanks to Jonathan and his team for making this perfect on every level – the place, the horsemanship, the people… I am going home fulfilled with more skills, and looking forward to coming back and doing more and continuing with my horsemanship.”
