Their cure? A two-week cattle drive on horseback. At the end of their hilarious and heart-warming adventure the men find courage, friendship, and a new lease on life.Thanks to a 91-year-old non-profit organization - The Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies - you too can trade your mini-van for a mare and hit the mountains. The breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains awakens the adventurist in all of us of what many believe is the most beautiful scenery in the world. This "walk in the park" (world famous Banff National Park) is like no other you will ever experience.The organization runs nine separate six-day professionally-guided luxury trail rides from the end of June to early September. Unlike most backcountry horseback trips, the Trail Riders set up a main camp and, at the end of each day on the trail, return to the camp for "happy hour," a gourmet dinner, and some much-needed shut-eye in the cozy tents and teepees, complete with cots and mattresses. A hot shower is available. Expect the evening to include any combination of: camp fire singing, cowboy poetry, square dancing, story telling, educational talks, horse packing contests, skits and music. If you can stand a week of this fun and frivolity, you will become a member in this historic and western cultural society. While many outfitters would charge thousands of dollars for such an experience, a six-day ride with the Trail riders is just $1800. Horse experience is not essential as this is a "dude operation" with over 60% of the guests returning each summer from previous years. Many of the guests are over 50 and female! Put it this way; if there ever was a quintessential, "bucket-list" Western Canadian trip, this is it. « less
