Continue along the edge of the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course and cross through the waters once more.

Honestly, it was a good experience... the 2 ladies were very helpful and friendly. It was my first time ever riding a horse and getting near to a horse. Instructions were simple. My horse though was so hungry and kept stopping to eat. It was very strong that when he decided to eat, my arm strength was not enough to pull his head up ( and i was worried to upset him too). Also my horse kept hitting the horse in front him and run toward the horse in front of him.( even if i keep space and try to stop him) I was thinking maybe i was doing something wrong, but i observed all other horses were quite and obedient. Overall i think it was good experience and staff were helpful. I just think my luck qas not the best of getting a hungry horse who was in a mood haha.

The trip was fun, two times crossing Spray river, spotted deer along the way. Air turns clear one day before we arrived(10th of August), so I feel very lucky. We arrived earlier than check in time, so have to wait in car when they prepare the horse, thought the staff would let us know when they are ready, but they didn't. A little disappointed With the service.
