So much fun! The staff are friendly and make you feel comfortable, no matter your experience of horse riding and the horses are lovely. We learned a lot from the riders during the ride out about the area and generally quite chatty. The views are beautiful with mountains one way and then the Bow river on the way back - we even saw a coyote! Very enjoyable and highly recommend.
We had a great time on our hour long trail ride. Our guide Harry was great! I really liked how they took the time to make sure my 9 and 13 year olds were comfortable before we left. A great day!
We really enjoyed our trail ride. We were the only family with our guide Noelle. She shared lots of great stories about her experiences as a guide and about the trails & Banff area. The horses were great and worked well for all of us. We have gone trail riding many times in the past privately, but never in Banff. Its a very unique way to experience the national park. We will definitely do it again!
Overall my experience was awesome. Just one hiccup.... I had my 2 daughters there, and when we were booking in we were told that the riding age was 12 yrs old, my girls are 15. Once we got to the stables though it was explained that the age to ride unaccompanied by a parent is 16. I'm petrified of horses. I sucked it up and got on a horse for I couldn't disappoint them. They gave me a horse that was perfect for me. All I had to do was sit and enjoy. Our guide was very informative and she had only been living in Banff for 3 months. Also they let us change our booked time so we could go back home to get proper footwear. Never let a small issue ruin your own good time.
I recommend a trail ride with Banff Trail Riders to ANYONE who is visiting the area! The scenery was spectacular as would be expected but the experience was made really special by our guide and the care given to the horses. Our guide Danielle had obviously been riding for years and maintained a professionalism required to ensure safety for the diverse group, but what made our experience so special was how engaging and knowledgeable she was. She had stories of the local history, she talked about local wildlife and the signifigance of the park itself. Danielle really made the experience more than just a trail ride. First time riders, families and seasoned veterans will have an awesome time! I have owned horses and been riding for years and was so happy to see how wonderfully, (with love and care) the horses were cared for. It was obvious in their disposition, their appearance and alertness that they were given the best handling and care.Great job guys! Thank you.
