Enjoy a scenic ride on horseback through the breathtaking front range of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The trails through the backcountry surrounding Boundary Ranch are some of the most superb and picturesque in Alberta, providing captivating views of the rolling terrain, wooded expanses, and the peaks of the Kananaskis Mountain Range.

You'll traverse mountain ridges high above the landscape below to capture a breathtaking view of the entire Kananaskis Valley. Watch carefully as you descend through the arboreal forest and wetlands—you might catch a glimpse of the wildlife that resides in this unique ecosystem.  

The 2-hour Ridge Ride is the most popular option and is appropriate for novice to experienced riders. Remember to bring your camera to capture the incredible scenery.

Your guides will start by matching you with one of the safe and reliable horses. These animals are sturdy, experienced, and delighted to connect with you and show you their mountain home. Before heading out of the corral, your guides will coach you through a brief orientation to horses and trail riding, and happily answer any of your questions. Each trip is guided by qualified staff and limited to a walking pace for your safety and comfort.

Riding through the landscape allows for exploration of remote areas, for spectacular panoramic photos, as well as the opportunity to encounter deer, moose, elk, and other wildlife native to the area. Trail rides operate seasonally from May to October.
