CHANGES FOR 2021
Message From Stan
2021 will see significant changes to the operation of Blue Creek Outfitting. First, I take this opportunity to sincerely thank our many wonderful guests and customers over the past 20 years who have attended our clinics, programs, used our horses, and purchased books and gear.
Sincerely, THANK YOU! I have said it many times before – people who ride the trails and head into the back country with horses are good people. My kind of people, people who have made these years worthwhile and enjoyable!
In case you have not noticed, we are not getting any younger. It is time to reduce the numbers of horses and, in general, be less busy. We do not want to quit the Trail/Packing Clinic because it has been so valuable and enjoyable for so many for so many years.
So, we are reducing the number of guests to 10 or less per clinic, and 2 clinics per year. As before, one week each, the last two weeks of June, ending the first Saturday in July. This will allow more personal attention than in the past few years, and, fewer horses to manage, feed, and train all year long.
We will be reducing our herd from about 28 to 14. Also, this coming year, 2021, will see the last Guides Program, so if you were thinking about it, now is the time! Call me anytime to discuss – 1 250 569 7575.
We are continuing with horse use but reducing the use of our horses for trips. At this time there will be no further northern use of horses off the Alaska Highway, Cassiar Highway, and other points far north.
Over the past 20 years many riders from novice to experienced, from families to serious adventurers, have enjoyed Blue Creek's very reliable and sturdy horses, so, horse use for rental/lease for trail riding and holidays will continue, but with reduced numbers.
The only other expected change is the SHOP section on our website. We are presently setting it up as a standard shopping cart system where you can just order online, without having to call us, or have us call you, for credit card information, etc. And, we will be adding some new product. Expect these changes to be in place by April.
For those looking to buy good trail horses, we will be selling 6 or so very good trail horses this coming spring or early summer. If you would like us to contact you when we decide which horses will be available, and exactly when, please email me and I will contact you closer to the time when they will be sold.
THANK YOU AND HAPPY ADVENTURES!
Stan Walchuk Jr.
