Horseback Riding Summer Outdoor Activities

The first people to see Alberta from the saddle clearly noticed something worth sticking around for. Cantering through meadows, rolling prairie and foothills will do that to a person. ● Learn it: Being a first-time horseback rider is no reason not to get the pioneer experience. Lots of ranches offer training paired with day-long rides. ● Level up: Multi-day trail rides? Yes, please. Trot the open range by day (eyes peeled for wildlife). At night, sleep in a cozy tent after one-upping your new cowpoke friends around the campfire. ● Try it: Test your horseback skills by herding cattle on a working ranch. 

Ever wondered where Banff Trail Riders' 300 horses spend winter? It’s a pretty sweet gig – work six months of the year, then run free, eat, and hang with your buds for the other six months.
