Though my children 10 and 11 and my husband are comfortable on horses, I'm not. However, I had an amazing time with Timberline this morning. My horse, Skylar, was beautiful, gentle, obedient and sure footed. We did a 2 hour ride along the lake. The view was spectacular as we emerged from the forest into open space at the far... More

We had a wonderful ride with Timberline Tours, our guide Louisa was very friendly and knowledgeable about the mountains and horses. I recommend going on the 3.5 hour ride up to the little beehive and lake Agnes,as the views are spectacular once you are past the forest. This is an authentic Canadian Rockies horse riding experience.

My friends and I did a ride yesterday with Timberline. First of all, Susan was very helpful and patient on the phone and waited for us to arrive. Brenton was our tenative guide. He was informative about the area but his humor made it FUN, it was never boring. We laughed the whole way. The horses were gentle and easy... More

We rode yesterday with Brenton. We had a great time. The horses were well cared for and very familar with the trial. It had just snowed and it was very very beautiful and serene. Yes the trails are narrow in places, but in my experience that is part of "trail" riding. Yes we had to share with a few hikers-... More

My friends & I were on the half day ride with someone who wrote a very bad review; we had the opposite experience. We all have horses of our own. It did rain all day; can't blame anyone for that & we had a very good time regardless. We have many photos of healthy horses in front of us &... More

I have owned and ridden horses for well over 30 years. Most of those years have been spent doing competitive endurance riding in some very challenging country. My ride at this facility was nothing short of awful! The poor horse I had was so small, it was like riding a 2 yr old. The trails are narrow and shared with... More

Susan P, Owner at Timberline Tours Ltd. - Private Day Tours, responded to this review

Horses have been doing these trails since 1935, taking thousands of tourists and my guess is about 90% of them would be in the beginner rider category. If the rides were operated dangerously do you really think we would be in business this long? I really don’t understand why this person didn’t come back when she was asked if she... More

I went on a 3.5h horse ride up to the little Beehive mountain near Lake Louise. The first section of the horse trail runs through a beautiful forest and allowed me some time to get familiar to Real, a beginner horse. The second part of the trail joins the ordinary hiking trail. The views are just stunning! Thanks a lot... More

We did the 5 hour ride to the Plain of Six Glaciers via the Highline trail on the way there and the lower trail on the way back. The horses were very nicely matched to the riders and easy to handle. On the highline trail, we got glimpses of the lake and chateau. We quickly went by Lake Agnes so... More
