Holiday on Horseback
132 Banff Ave.
Banff, Alberta T1L 1C1
Take a minute to soak in your surroundings. Take several, in fact, since the view stretches for miles. Evergreen trees blanket the lowlands of Banff National Park, hugging the bases of mountains whose snow-dusted peaks scratch the itchy bellies of passing clouds. No one is around for miles—save for your horse, the guide leading you up the mountainside, and your fellow riders.
Moments like these have been Holiday on Horseback’s bread, butter, and baked beans for more than 50 years. Their guides lead horseback trips deep into the backcountry of Banff National Park. The journeys can last anywhere from a couple of hours to days on end, as riders cross streams and climb the steep terrain of the Canadian Rockies. There are ample opportunities to pause along the way and watch for wildlife. Many rides incorporate cowboy-style cookouts, during which steaks sizzle on the barbecue. Games of horseshoes help pass the time and give the horses a chance to walk around in just their socks.
One such trip with Holiday on Horseback is enough to transform anyone into a cowboy or cowgirl. The only things missing are boots, hats, and maybe a saddle. Luckily, these goods fill the racks and shelves of the onsite Trail Rider Store.
