Following your guide -- an experienced ranch hand -- enjoy scenic views as you travel along the base of Sulphur Mountain and along the Bow River. Arriving at your covered cookout location near the Sundance Canyon Trail, relax as you dine on a BBQ steak cookout (see Itinerary for a sample menu).

After your meal, either mount your horse and head along the Sulphur Mountain Trail or hop in the wagon for your return ride along the Bow River to Warner Stables.

You’ll enjoy breakfast or dinner, depending on whether you choose the morning or evening tour. Your tour concludes when you arrive back at the stables.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Brilliant hack for all levels of experience. This was the first time my husband had ever been on a horse and he had as good a time as I did. The horses are all fit and well cared for. They're friendly - affectionate even - and all fitted with power-steering (rein trained). The outriders are professional, experienced and friendly. We rode through some wonderful scenery on a circular route. Lunch was a superb BBQ of steak, salad, jacket potatoes and beans. Playtime with Horseshoes was fun too. I heartily recommend this trip to anyone - experienced or rank newbie; you WILL have fun!

A fantastic late arvo, early evening activity. We saw a bear which was a great introduction to Canada's wildlife, excellent cooking from Warner Stables Chef, he cooked our steaks to perfection and a very scenic and relaxing way to get to our evening meal.
