Banff Horseback Rides

If you want to go riding just for the day or a few hours, then check out our Trail Rides.

From a one-hour ride that crosses the Spray River to a covered wagon or horseback ride that ends with a BBQ steak cookout, Banff Trail Riders has a range of different tours to choose from.

Trail rides are perfect for:

  • Young children, families or anyone who wants to try horseback riding
  • Travellers who would rather ride in a wagon than on horseback
  • Want to combine an activity and meal break to make the most of their day
