Driving single in the arena and about.


 Call To Book - 1 (250) 547-6303 for 2009

  In the spring of 1999 we completed the new guest cabin so we could start our Driving Training Weekends. We specialize in beginning driving training with singles, pairs, and if your up to it, a four-in-hand. Since then we have been booked solid and enjoyed working with every guest. Pictured above are some of our previous guests.

Lumby is located in the North Okanagan part of the Interior of British Columbia Canada. The area features plenty of recreation such as hiking, skiing, fishing, motocross, and wine tours.

We are now taking reservations so if you are interested, just call us or email for available times and rates. The cabin, located in a private corner of the property overlooks a pond, the arena, and Trinity Valley. It has been a big hit and people enjoy it's rustic but homey elements.

Now that Brian is retired we will be extending our bookings to include mid-week driving and training.


$650 US -- Complete Package includes:

  • Accommodation - Fri, Sat, Sun (based on double occupancy).

  • Meals - Dinner Sat, Sun. (call for a quote on mid-week availability)

  • Lessons - Morning and Afternoon, 1 1/2 hours each. -- Arena Work and a Pleasure Drive.

  • Use of all our equipment and horses

*Note - Cost adjustments if you want to provide your own RV and/or all meals.


Pairs start in the arena as well and soon progress to nature.
