Situated 12.5 km (8 miles) northeast of Rossburn among rolling hills and lakes, the 9 Finger Ranch is a working cattle ranch, owned and operated by Ilse and Thomas Ketelsen. We were joined by our son Ray and his wife Val and all together, we have over 40 years experience in anything horse, farm and business related things.
We have over 60 heads of cattle ranch 1,120 acres (448 ha). The 9 Finger Ranch offers guided horseback rides on the ranch and into Riding Mountain National Park on our laid-back Tennessee Walking horses, and affordable accommodation through our affiliation with Hostelling International (HI) Canada.
