Horseback Riding Summer Outdoor Activities

Go horseback riding in Alberta and learn to ride western style. Discover the nature of the land from the saddle, as the explorers did centuries ago. Ride through an alpine meadow filled with wildflowers in the Canadian Rockies. See the gold of the larch against the green of the pines in autumn. Explore the foothills and rolling prairies and watch for wildlife. Professional outfitters will tailor the ultimate adventure on horseback to your skills and time, be it a lesson and a two-hour ride, a multi-day horsepacking trip into the backcountry or herding cattle on a working ranch.
