Horseback riding vacations in Alberta and Saskatchewan

From the moment of arrival Alberta’s grandeur and beauty are obvious. Rolling foothills, intimidating mountains and prehistoric hoodoos are a few of Alberta’s more distinct natural landmarks.

Horse riding holidays in Alberta are many and varied. In Banff you can enjoy horse riding in the Canadian Rockies and Banff National Park on our Banff Tenting Ride and Banff Lodge Ride. Explore the Kananaskis area on our Continental Divide Ride. In Southern Alberta experience some true ranch style hospitality on our High Plains Drifter Ride and Porcupine Hills Cow Camp. And finally, near Calgary (home of the world famous stampede) enjoy a ranch style holiday on our Southern Alberta Ranch ride.

Most impressive are Alberta’s Rocky Mountains and Kananaskis Country, which facilitate the world famous resort towns of Banff, Jasper, Canmore, Kananaskis, Lake Louise and Waterton. Dinosaur hunters flock to Drumheller, home of the acclaimed Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, where the desert topography yields countless fossils and prehistoric discoveries.

Alberta’s rural heritage can be further explored with a visit to the vast farmlands of Alberta’s Heartland, Southern Alberta and Northern Alberta. Calgary, home of the globally recognized Calgary Stampede is best known for its warm hospitality and close proximity to the Rockies.

Some of the most enduring images of Saskatchewan are endless fields of golden wheat waving in a gentle breeze, stoic grain elevators and modest, welcoming communities where the pace of life leaves time for living. Even though times change and people come and go, one true thing endures: the Saskatchewan prairie way of life.

Saskatchewan’s people are its heart and soul – warm, friendly and deeply connected to the land. Join Equitour on a real working ranch getaway with breathtaking sunsets. Our River Valley Ranch is located close to Lake Diefenbaker, and is a unique opportunity to partake in day to day life on a real Saskatchewan ranch. Here you can live the cowboy dream, riding and roping, and spending evenings around the campfire under a prairie sky.
