     HORSEBACK RIDING

See the Rockies from a Saddle!

Horses and Alberta go back a long way (150 years).
The west was explored with horses, tamed by mounties on horseback, settled with horse-drawn wagons and ploughed with horses. Today there are numerous opportunites for exploring Alberta on horseback. Here are a couple you will find of equestrian interest.



~~  Horseback Riding Jasper  ~~
Choose from a great variety of horsebacking
adventures in Jasper National Park

Pyramid Lake Stables (at Pyramid Resort) has short rides up into the benchlands above Jasper townsite
.
Ridgeline Riders in Jasper has longer guide rides available at Maligne Lake, including the Bald Hills Fire Lookout ride.

At Jasper Park Lodge, horses are available for hourly rental. From here you can take a leisurely ride to Lake Annette or a 5 hour canyon ride. Riding lessons are also available.

HORSE RENTALS




~~  Horseback Riding Banff  ~~
We do recommend "guided" trail riding. There several good reasons for this.

Short rides are available from Timberline Tours to Bow Lake. They also do expeditions up to 14 days or longer. Talk to the experts.

Holiday on Horseback . Their corral is at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and they run one hour trips along the Spray River. If you fancy the idea of riding your mount up to a hearty breakfast then this is the place! They also arrangecovered wagon rides and rides that include wilderness cookouts
. Best time to try the six day ride is the fall when leaves have started to change and weather is still nice.



Brewsters Lake Louise Stables. You can ride (half day) to the plain of six glaciers (Lake Louise) on an awe-inspiring ride where you will see something very vew people will ever see, six stunning glaciers. Saddle up for another amazing (full day) ride to Paradise Valley, the Giant Steps and lake Annette. Lunch is included. Contact Brewster's Lake Louise Stables. Want more cowboy stuff? How about Brewster's Cowboy and dance barn.




Herds of wild horses still roam the foothills
and mountain areas of Alberta.
