Go horseback riding in Alberta and learn to ride western style. Discover the nature of the land from the saddle, just as the explorers did centuries ago. Ride through an alpine meadow when the wildflowers are in bloom, see the gold of the larch and aspen against the green of the pines in autumn, explore the foothills and rolling prairies and watch for wildlife. Go with a guide who brings the history of this land to life.
