My wife and I just got back from Banff and Jasper and we decided to do the 7 hour steak lunch cook out ride with Holiday on Horseback. The experience was fantastic, even though part of my body were protesting for days afterwards. Seems that a 7 hour rides does not compare to riding a computer chair day after day. Even though my butt hurt, I wouldn't trade the fun we had. The views more than made up for the soreness and having a steak cooked over a log fire (thanks Sarah) plus all the fixins was just an extra bonus to it.
The staff asked us about our riding experience, matched us up with horses and gave information on riding and any quirks about the specific horse you were given. The horses were very responsive to commands and the ups and downs and steep cliffs added to the journey.
