Western Winter Fun with Holiday on Horseback
Spend some time in a winter wonderland on a sleigh ride through the mountain meadows around the Banff townsite.
Our excursion begins with a tour of the barn and a look inside and behind the scenes, to view the operations of the stables, tack equipment and chat to the staff (both two and four legged).
Then it's time to snuggle down under warm wool blankets and enjoy spectacular views of the valley and surrounding mountains. Watch for wildlife and listen to the jingling sleigh bells as our guides take you on an quintessential winter experience. A delightful treat for all members of the family.
Your memorable excursion includes a fireside warmup stop at the halfway point with hot chocolate and cookies before boarding again for the return journey back to Banff.
