Horseback Riding in Banff

Back in the 19th century, the Rocky Mountains were grueling to navigate on foot. So when fur traders first began to explore Western Canada, horses offered the most efficient way to explore the craggy, steep terrain of this area. Our Banff horseback riding tours are designed to give you a taste of what these brave settlers experienced more than 200 years ago.

Horseback riding for the first time? Don’t sweat it. You can gain experience in the saddle on our scenic one-hour rides along the Bow River or cross through the Spray River.

On our Banff horseback tours you’ll cross emerald-green rivers backed by soaring peaks, climb up Sulphur Mountain around the Windy Knoll viewpoint, learn how to lasso like a cowboy, and keep energy levels up with a cowboy cookout ride with hearty BBQ cooked over an open fire.

But if you want a multi-day experience trip staying at a backcountry lodge or campsite, our Backcountry Horseback Riding Vacations offer true pioneer-style adventures.

Highlights

  • Journey into the Canadian wilderness along river trails, wooded hillsides and jagged mountain peaks
  • Learn about the natural landscape from experienced guides with a passion for the environment
  • Receive basic horseback riding instructions to get you settled into the saddle
  • Veteran cowboys guide you as you go horseback riding through Banff, so you’re always in safe hands
