Although Banff and Jasper get the tourist attention in Alberta, I think the land west of Rocky looking towards the mountains is as beautiful as anything you will see. The views from this ranch are perfect. We only stayed at the ranch for one night but we truly enjoyed our experience - the owners clearly have thought things out for... More

Peaceful with a view of the forest and mountains far away. cabins are very clean and hosts welcoming. Horses are friendly. lake and horse trails around 5 mins away. We loved our stay and looking forward to be there again soon!

The 'ride the wind ranch' is a beautiful place to go to get away. When we arrived we were really happy to find that the place was even nicer than the pictures on their website. The cabins are super clean and cozy. We loved all the beautiful wood décor. The view was amazing...rolling hills and snowy rocky mountains in the... More

The location feels far away but it is in fact very easy to get to. The sandhill cranes that take over the paddocks every spring and the Texas Longhorns in the meadows made great sights from our verandah and I gather the view to the mountains is spectacular - but it was socked in and very wet the night we...

My mother and I travelled from London to spend 2 weeks in Canada. 1 week was spent touring and the second week was spent at the ranch. I have to say it was one of the best experiences ever. I was an avid rider when younger but had not got in the saddle for a number of years. I was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. I chose the Ranch so that we could ride. The food was excellent and though I was a little sore from so much riding it was great. We got to canter, gallop and even jump though I think that was unexpected, where as most stables only let you sit... More

We stayed at the ranch for two full days and three nights and absolutely loved our time there! The cabins- built by the family- are really cosy and welcoming. The ranch as a whole is beautiful and the horses are so gentle and lovely. The views of the Rockies are stunning, and the surroundings so peaceful.. it is a real... More

The strongpoints are the view of the Rockies, in the distance, from the cabin, the comfortable and clean accommodation and the homecooked meals. The hostess threw me out of her house twice, once upon arrival, when the other guests were having dinner (I thought it would be an opportunity to meet the people I'd spend a week with, but no)...

We stayed for 5 nights at Ride the Wind Ranch as part of a longer trip. It is a small Guest Ranch, run by Hans and Kathy Rissi, which we chose so that we could enjoy full board, horse riding and beutiful scenery in very peaceful surroundings. And we were not disappointed. Our 'kids' aged 21, 19, 15 and 12... More
