Overview
Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest and most celebrated national park - and one worth getting out of the car and onto a trail for. Go back to a simpler time with a 1-hour horseback ride and experience the park at a relaxed pace. Led by your cowboy guide, saddle up and cross through the tranquil Spray River, and get a feel for what it was like for pioneers first settling in this once-wild area.

The most trash service ever. The 2 lady’s in the front were pure losers completely laughed at my buddy for being over 230 when her herself is pushing 230 if not 250. Pure garbage dont waste your times there are way better options for horse riding in banff again pure losers

This was fantastic! The guides were friendly, horses were gentle and easy to ride, the scenery was stunning. My son loved it better than the gondola. Do this if you have kids - it was fun for him and we really enjoyed it too

Extremely professional group. Very organized, with wonderful horses. It would be hard not to have a good experience in those surroundings. The best parts were going across the moving water and wandering on the trail by the Fairmount Banff Springs Golf Course...and the Bow Falls!

Highly recommend this company! We had an amazing time with the two young ladies who were knowledgeable, professional and so much fun! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and it made us want to come back to do an overnight trip. Do not miss this!
