What people are saying about Alberta

We took a horse riding trip last week, and it quickly became one of my children's all-time favourite activities. At first, both the kids and I were nervous since it was our first horse-riding experience. However, the coaches were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, putting us at ease immediately. The horses were well-trained and did an excellent job. The outing was so enjoyable that we'd definitely recommend it to our friends. There was a small hiccup when my daughter's horse stumbled during the river crossing, but luckily, neither she nor the horse was injured. The coach promptly took extra precautions, keeping close to the horse for the remainder of the trip, ensuring we all felt safe and comfortable.

A great experience. Kate our guide was excellent. Loads of information and the horses were all in excellent condition. We had young children and she engaged with them and made them feel very included. It’s a calm and beautiful trail. A must do

Amazing fun. Such beautiful scenery, and the horses are lovely. Love the fact they're all rescue horses too. The guides were great. Very informative, friendly and knowledgeable. Can't recommend it more. 5*

Nice ride with beautiful views. Maybe a little trotting would add some excitement but fun hour overall.

We had a blast. Great ride, wonderful scenery. Guides and Horses were lovely.
