5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

I had never been on a hourse before i went to Banff. me and my wife did two trail rides the first one was an hour long and the seccond one was a three hour ride.

Both rides were amazing and took you across all diffrent terrain.

I would reccomend it to everyone as like me you dont need any experiance.

“Great trail ride. Responsive horses. Great staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

My daughter and I did the one hour trail ride that departs from Banff Springs Hotel. It was so scenic. We crossed water twice, something we had never done before, and we're so excited to do so. We got to see the falls, parts of the golf course, and the scenic beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Trail Guides were fabulous.

“My daughters choice-”

My wife and daughter enjoyed a 1 hour trail ride around the Banff Springs. All of us inexperienced riders however no problems. Lots of excellent pics and we even saw a bear roaming around the woods.

“The Single Best Family Trip Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Our family just returned from an incredible back-country tenting trip with Warner Guiding and Outfitting (August 6-9, 2012). The entire experience was unforgettable, and the kids (ages 14 and 16) agree that it was the best trip we have taken. We rode anywhere from 4-6 hours a day, surrounded by glorious scenery and breath-taking vistas of the Rockies. We had picnic lunches along the way and arrived in each camp every evening to great meals and lively company with our guide, cook and packer. The next morning, we woke up to homemade muffins, cowboy coffee, eggs, pancakes, you name it!

Each camp has its own cook and packer (who packs the mules, fixes posts around the camp, shoes the horses/mules etc.). Our guide, Mike, was with us throughout the entire trip. He was kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and took great care of all of us!

Be prepared for a sore bum, a couple of bruises, and some stiffness on Day 2, but if you love the great outdoors (whether or not you know how to ride), this is the trip of a lifetime! The only downside was tearing ourselves away from our horses when we had to say goodbye at the end of our journey. Tears were shed!

“Great for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Recommend for the whole family. The cowboys/girls are great with kids and all are very friendly. This is a must when in Banff. We did the 1 hour Bow River and will try the spray loops next time. The price is very reasonable considering the quality of service you receive. I can't say enough about our experience while there. One of the cowboys took time to read a poem he had written, to our children. Awesome.
