Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride in Banff | Feb 2020
A perfect afternoon. Our driver was very friendly and his stories entertained us. The venue added nice touches like marshmallows to roast on the fire and hot chocolate inside to warm up. Highly recommend.

Definitely a must when visiting Banff

Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride in Banff | Feb 2020
This was part of a 70th birthday gift for my mom. We were looking for something involving the mountains but not strenuous. She absolutely loved it and so did my siblings and I. (All over 30) The guide was great and the view was breathtaking. We learned so much about the wildlife and of course the horses were beautiful. Overall an amazing experience. It was chilly but we were very bundled up and the blankets added extra warmth.

amazing experience

Covered Wagon or Horseback Ride in Banff with Western Cookout | Sep 2019
we were a family with adult children. My husband and I went on the wagon ride as I have mobility issues. It was very comfitable withfairly easy steps up. Our two sons, 34 and 22, did the horse riding. They were complete beginners. Tuition was given first and they soon felt confident and coped really well. We all met up together at the cookout. Excellent meal was provided - steak, beans , baked potato, salad and fixings. Lots of entertaining information was given in the wagon ride.

Pretty nice tour- a bit difficult to book

Covered Wagon or Horseback Ride in Banff with Western Cookout | Sep 2019
I wish I had booked this directly on the website instead of through TripAdvisor- we weren’t able to choose the number of horse riders v wagon riders- then it was a big hassle to try and change it. We weren't able to choose directly with the company- but had to spend ages on the phone with viator to cancel the original booking and change the new one. It ended up being on an hour earlier than the time on the original booking and you’re supposed to be there a half hour before that. Managed it in the end! We had a two year old with us and hoped I could bring him on the way there and then swap with his dad to horse ride the way back- but the tour wouldn’t allow it which was disappointing. They said they needed to match the horses with height and riding ability...which is fine but we have the same height and riding ability so I dunno... It seemed a bit pedantic. The tour itself and tour guides were really nice! They were knowledgable and friendly. The food was great and we practiced lassoing :-)

Be careful what you really sign up for

Covered Wagon or Horseback Ride in Banff with Western Cookout | Aug 2019
I had signed up to ride horses and when we got there they said we had signed up to ride in the covered wagon. This place has 300 horses so what would have been the big deal to saddle 2 more horses?? It is the same price. Covered wagon ride not that great. Maybe for a 5 year old or 80 year old! No refunds were offered. I would not record this!!! Not happy

Not quite what we hoped

Covered Wagon or Horseback Ride in Banff with Western Cookout | Aug 2019
First, you need to be at the registration 45 mins or so before the ride. We weren't and the staff's patience was appreciated and hence this my advice. The rides were very large about 20 (but I did not count them) plus 3 guides. The pace was dreadfully slow. The ride out was kind of boring. The supper was good. The crew all tries to engage with the group but by the end of the day it appears most are ready to leave (not really a criticism- more of an observation). The food was good and at a level of expectation. This is not Ruth-Chris Steakhouse. The ride back was very slow. The trail back was lovely with climbs, descents and meadows. Always maintain a single file orientation. If you want real slow this is for you. Idea if you have children.

Not as good as the previous time

Covered Wagon or Horseback Ride in Banff with Western Cookout | Jul 2019
My party of three opted for the Steak Ride. One hour of horseback riging to the cooksite called 3 Mile, and another way back for an hour on horseback. 3/4 of the first hour was spent with the horses slogging through a foot deep of mud. Not so pleasant a ride. My steak was fine but the other two were not. The hour back was pleasant enough. Heavy rain for weeks created the muddy environment and also prevented us from going up the mountain as the decent wold have been dangerous. Having taken this ride before, I know that scaling the mountain leads to much more interesting views and photos. Again in life, timing is everything! My guests were happy that we had done the event though, despite the drawbacks. Staff were very friendly and excellent riders. We felt safe.
