“Winter wonderland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I really enjoyed wandering around the meadows and marsh boards with a friend this winter. The sleigh ride available from the stables in fun, but make sure you wrap up REALLY warm!!

“not as good as expection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

at first, i thought the duration was short, it turned out to be long enough, lol.
the route is not so interesting, and the smell is really bad.
however, puls imagination, sometimes it feels like you were in a fairy tale.

“Great outing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We did the 2 hour tour here and it was lively and within everyones capabilities. The staff were friendly and helpful and everyone pretty much got a horse suited to their skills. We would be interested in some of the other stuff they do. Great!!

“Had alot of fun on an easy comfortable ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I did the cookout as part of a recent contiki tour and we had a large group about 32 of us all riding horses so we were all in line going at a comfortable pace. It was slow but i didnt mind as it allowed us to take photos of the scenery, and my horse adair was well mannered. As ive only ridden horses a couple of times i was very comfortable, and the staff were well split up between our group
and were there to help if our horse weren't behaving.

The cookout was amazing the food was great and the steak was tender enough to cut with a plastic knife not to mean the chilli was Delicious. No real issues for me even in a larger group id be curious to experience the longer rides as its a whole another way to get a view of lovely banff.
