The Trail Riders is a not-for-profit club of enthusiasts who enjoy taking new guests out to explore these majestic mountains with the comforts of home and will host 6-day professionally guided trail rides this summer. The breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains awakens the adventurist in all of us of what many believe is the most beautiful scenery in the world. Unlike most backcountry horseback trips, the Trail Riders set up a main camp and, at the end of each day on the trail, return for “happy hour,” a hot home cooked dinner, and some much-needed shut-eye in the cozy tents and Indian style teepees complete with cots and mattresses. A hot shower is available.
Expect the evening to include any combination of: camp fire singing, story telling, educational talks, skits and live music. If you can stand a week of this fun and frivolity, you will become a member in this historic and western cultural society. Horse experience is not essential and over 50% of the riders are over 50, and 70% are women! Put it this way; if there ever was a quintessential, “bucket-list” Western Canadian trip, this is it!
