Overall rating

The activity was well organised, time focused to ensuring safe riding..the staff all appeared to love the horses. Our 2 guides were excellent, however taking pics was difficult as I was unable to take pics with 1 hand while holding in to horse reign. I would recommend scheduled stops where participants could use both hands to take pics knowing the horses would stay still... The staff were great with assisting me on and off the horse and did take a picture before you got off the horse for memory. The reason this company is so strict with time arrival is because they take the safety instructions seriously and if you miss this, then they will not risk ur safety or the safety of the horses by letting you ride. All the guides seemed to have a genuine affection for all the animals. Thoroughly enjoyed my 2 hr ride, despite a sore butt next day..lol Thankyou to the stable team...for making this one of our favourite activity while we were in Banff. Cheers an Aussie traveller Lisa
