Banff Horseback Riding

Banff Horseback Rides in the Canadian Rockies

Adventures on horseback range from 1 to 3 hour trail rides, wilderness cookouts, full-day trips, or even 2 to 6 day pack trips for the remote adventure seeker! Departing from the ranch stables in Banff, your cowboy guide will take you through some spectacular mountains and/or along the banks of Spray or Bow River. For those who do not wish to ride horseback there is a covered wagon available for some of the tours for the same price.

Enjoy the spectacular scenery of Banff National Park from the back of a horse! Horseback riding is fun for all ages and abilities, and with over 300 horses to choose from at the ranch, Warner Guiding & Outfitting has the perfect horse for all experience levels and temperament. These trail rides range from leisurely treks through the wilderness to more extreme river crossings and steep embankments, allowing you space to trot and meadows to gallop.

Bring the whole family down for an authentic Western Cookouts, perfect for the whole family! Choose to ride on horseback down the trail or enjoy a classic Covered Wagon ride to where everyone meets up for a BBQ steak cookout with loads of extras. Breakfast and supper options are also available so come when best suits you and your crew. Enjoy the scenic ride like the cowboys of the Wild West along the base of Sulphur Mountain and along the Bow River to the covered cookout location at 3 Mile Cabin by the Sundance Canyon Trail. Relax, try your hand at roping or challenge your friends to a game of horseshoes while your steak is cooked to order.
