About
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.

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

Horsey love for Banff Trail Riders
Jul 2020
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! Ready for the two-hour ride now :).

Highlight of Banff
Jul 2020
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!
