The Experience

The trail you’re following twists through thick forests and sun-drenched meadows. But the entire time, your eyes stay glued to the white-tipped mountains rising high against a deep azure sky.  No matter what type of western-style adventure you’re looking for, Banff Trail Riders will give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience, Banff horseback ride.

We’ve been helping travellers explore the wilderness on horseback since 1962. It’s a tradition we’re proud of. It’s also why we provide travellers with 17 unique Banff horseback riding trips to choose from. Go for a Banff horseback trail ride along the wildlife-rich shores of the Bow River for a few hours, take the family on an authentic cowboy cookout, or stay for a few nights at a comfortable lodge nestled in backcountry.

In the winter, enjoy a classic sleigh ride or take a gentle snowshoeing trip to our roomy Sundance Lodge.

So start exploring, get inspired, we’d love for you to ride with us
