Enjoy many wild flowers and spectacular scenery along the eastern slopes of the Rockies. Wildlife is occasionally spotted while horseback riding; most often a squirrel, deer or coyote. Sighting of birds of many varieties is common; hawks, eagles, ravens, ruffed grouse, jays and chickadees to name a few.
Our trail rides are open to the public from May to October. Please e-mail or phone in advance to schedule a trail ride, most late bookings can be accommodated. We prefer to have at least a day in advance bookings. We accept trail ride reservations with payment of a $40 non-refundable deposit by Visa or MasterCard. We do offer rain-checks and will re-schedule a trail ride if rained out.
Our gentle horses are of mixed blood; some Morgan, Arabian and Quarterhorse breeding. A horse will be selected for you that suits your size and riding ability. We do not run the horses. Riding helmets are mandatory and will be provided for all minors, 17 years old and under. Helmets are also available for adults.
The riverside Teepees take all the work out of camping, set up with wood floor deck and comfortable double-sized bed. Camp cots are provided for additional occupants. Guests may bring their own sleeping bags or warm bedding or we provide bedding for those who require it to be provided. Each Teepee has a propane barbeque, fire ring and picnic table outside.

Waiver of Liability:
We take every precaution to safeguard riders and their property (cameras, sun glasses, jackets, etc.), but ask that participants recognize that horse back trail riding can involve some risk as horses can be unpredictable at times regardless of their past training. Participants are required to acknowledge this risk by signing a waiver of liability prior to departing on our trail rides. We suggest that out-of-province riders check their insurance policies to ensure accident coverage in Alberta and if necessary purchase all inclusive trip insurance.
