My fiance and I were given a gift for a sleigh ride at Christmas and we used it on March 7th, 2015. We arrived at Warner Stables and greeted by a cowboy who introduced us to our pulling team. They had a fire, hot chocolate, and marshmallows while you waited for the wagon ride to start. The wagon ride was... More

We traveled through Banff and were regaled with stories about the horses, about the origins of Banff (the town) and about life... More

My husband and I were visiting Banff, and trying to find things we could do with our little guy! Groupon had a deal the day we were headed down, so we paid $30 for 2 adults to go on a wagon ride (regularly $65), so that was a good savings! You tour from the ranch, around town, by Bow River...

I bought the groupon for the sleigh ride and went with my husband and two young kids. Other sleigh rides we have been in the guides ring bells or tell stories about the horses or sing songs. Our guide just talked about the business aspect. Totally borring. Was also not impressed by the route. Just a 45 min figure 8... More

The sleigh ride was was a loop around the field behind the stables. The fireside warm up stop was actually at the end in the barn area next to where we started. Save your money!! Sadly disappointed.

This review is late.. but had to comment on the Evening horseback ride with the dinner. The ride was just enough for me... about an hour in and an hour back. The whole team put together a great steak dinner with activities while waiting.Mosquitos were out, so we had to spray with bug spray.. There were a lot of people... More

First off, the company was great, and the stables were pretty interesting. Booking the sleigh ride was easy, and we were able to get in for the following hour. No complaints about the ride, or Warner Stables! Our driver/guide was awesome, and really knew the area well. The horses Blaze and Sherman were beautiful and handled the snow-packed ice well....

When we arrived at the stables the staff were friendly and pointed us in the direction of a barn to fill out our disclaimers and told us to help our selfs to hot chocolate which we did as it was very very cold day in december. Wrap up extra warm for this trip in the winter, full ski outfit, snoods... More
