I wish the directions to the location could have been more clear. I drove by the meeting point 3 times but didn’t know it and we were late for 10 minutes. Fortunately the riding was fun and we enjoyed it.

Great ride, NOT on the river

It’s labeled as a spray river ride but we didn’t ride by the river at all, we crossed it twice for a total of 5 minutes of the ride. Otherwise it’s more of a forest tour. Just a bit misleading but the guides and horses were great.

Hi Bethany, Riding through the Bow River is a unique experience to Banff as it is a glacier fed river. We are glad you enjoyed the horses and the guides!

We were guided by cowgirls on this trip. The horses were friendly and the spray river crossing was so much fun! Totally worth doing this if you are in the Banff area.

Perfect taster for either those new to riding or just wanting a short ride through the mountains. Ride guides were really helpful, comforting for any nervous riders and encouraging. Horses are Western trained for any riders coming from the UK so takes a minute or two to forget your UK training but you soon get used to it! Horses really well trained and the scenery is just breathtaking. Highly recommended.
