INSPIRE TRAILS

ABOUT US

trail rides merritt

Inspire Trails is run by Jordan – a well travelled horse trainer who has lived and trained horses all around the world, including Texas, Africa and Europe.

Her passion has always been working with troubled horses, and helping people understand their horse and create a bond between them. Having been a guide and wrangler on horseback safari tours in Africa inspired her to create Inspire Trails – a platform from which she can rescue horses, train them to be ridden and having guests enjoy them as much as she does – giving the horses a new lease on life.

“I moved to Merritt with my husband whom is a forest firefighter. I met and became friends with people of the First Nations. Training their horses and being able to explore their beautiful land gave me the idea of starting up Inspire Trails here in Lower Nicola on the Indian reserve. The history is incredible, the scenery is beautiful and it is all on our doorstep. I want to educate people from all over the world about the First Nations history and particularly the Nlaka’pamux people here in Lower Nicola, BC”

AN AMAZING HISTORICAL ADVENTURE

OUR TRAIL RIDES

Join us for a historical horseback ride around the beautiful Lower Nicola Valley

We offer a unique experience traveling through protected first nations land – visit historical locations and learn about first nations traditions in an area not traditionally open to the public.

Ride our beautiful rescued horses, visit the Kekuli – a handmade teepee made right here in the Nicola Valley, see a handmade fish trap the First Nations use every year to catch their salmon, and much more.

We will travel to various locations throughout the valley, including the first ever built open pit copper mine in Canada. We will enjoy a tasty lunch at the amazing viewpoint on top of the mountain. You will learn more about the First Nations of the area  – our guides will tell stories of history, show you beautiful scenery, and point out wildlife like bears, eagles, vultures and deer.
