With unspeakably awe-inspiring scenery, incredibly diverse trails, unique wildlife encounters, savvy horses and wonderful local guides, this ride ticks EVERY box.

Canada’s Rocky Mountains are THE most remarkable globetrotting playground. With unspeakably awe-inspiring scenery, incredibly diverse trails, unique wildlife encounters, savvy horses and wonderful local guides, this ride ticks EVERY box.

Each day brings new trails to discover astride a fit, agile, mountain-bred horse. Prepare to be swept up in the otherworldly beauty that reveals itself at every turn. You’ll think it can’t possibly get any more magnificent – and then it does! 

Your hosts, the MacLaine family, are based in the foothills of the Rockies in Kananaskis country, Alberta. From the moment you arrive at their homely ranch, you’ll be treated to the very best Canadian hospitality. There are several riding itineraries on offer covering not just the Rocky Mountains, but also the prairies and foothills of southern Alberta. The rides combine cosy lodge accommodation with rustic camping in some truly heart-throbbing locations. 

Make no mistake: these are hands-on adventures where you’ll be feeding, grooming and saddling your own horse. Your gear will be carried by packhorses, allowing you to explore some seriously remote backcountry. Although packhorse days tend to be slower, rest assured there will still be opportunities to trot and canter. Bring it ON!

Whether you’re an intermediate or an advanced rider, whether you stay for six days or ten, the Rocky Mountains will capture your heart.

Expand AllCollapse All
  • Forgetmenot

    A ride to remember! Five full days in the saddle (with a non-riding transit day either side) covering over 100 kilometres of foothills, forests, rivers, meadows and mountains. 

    You’ll be picked up in Calgary on the afternoon of day one and brought to the ranch for a meet-and-greet dinner. The next morning you’ll be paired up with your steed and hit the trail, wandering through the foothills for four to five hours to reach your first campsite. Days three to six take you across the aptly named Forgetmenot Range, with each day’s ride decided based on the weather and trail conditions. The trails range from easy to rugged; some sections are very technical and require good balance and careful riding.

    7 days, 6 nights (5 riding days).

    All guests must be capable of:

    – Long, sometimes physically and mentally demanding days
    – Riding for up to 2 hours non-stop on moderate to complex mountain terrain (up/down inclines, rocky/technical trails)
    – Hiking for up to 2km on mountain terrain leading a horse up/downhill
    – Mounting from the ground
    – Riding safely and with good control at a walk, trot (rising and sitting) and canter (balanced), and riding actively and independently
    – Catching, leading, tying, grooming (including picking hooves), and tacking your horse (western saddle and bridle)
    – Working comfortably with and around horses, taking safe and situationally-aware actions.

    All guests must be comfortable with:

    – Heights
    – Camping and spending time in the backcountry, e.g. sleeping outdoors in a tent on a mat on the ground, no plumbing/electricity/showers, and no WiFi/cellular service
    – Embracing unpredictable challenges and getting out of your comfort zone in the wilderness, e.g. weather changes (rain, possibly snow) changes to itineraries, fallen trees across trails.

  • Tombstone Loop

    This ride starts where the Forgetmenot trail ends: in the secluded surrounds of Elbow Valley. It’s another 100-kilometre, five-day ride (again, with a non-riding transit day either side) with a variety of trails, some straightforward and others technically challenging. You’ll move camp three times and ride through three different alpine valleys, separated by the awe-inspiring Tombstone Pass. 

    7 days, 6 nights (5 riding days)

    All guests must be capable of:

    – Long, sometimes physically and mentally demanding days
    – Riding for up to 2 hours non-stop on moderate to complex mountain terrain (up/down inclines, rocky/technical trails)
    – Hiking for up to 2km on mountain terrain leading a horse up/downhill
    – Mounting from the ground
    – Riding safely and with good control at a walk, trot (rising and sitting) and canter (balanced), and riding actively and independently
    – Catching, leading, tying, grooming (including picking hooves), and tacking your horse (western saddle and bridle)
    – Working comfortably with and around horses, taking safe and situationally-aware actions.

    All guests must be comfortable with:

    – Heights
    – Camping and spending time in the backcountry, e.g. sleeping outdoors in a tent on a mat on the ground, no plumbing/electricity/showers, and no WiFi/cellular service
    – Embracing unpredictable challenges and getting out of your comfort zone in the wilderness, e.g. weather changes (rain, possibly snow) changes to itineraries, fallen trees across trails.

  • Kananaskis Longrider

    For the hardcore adventurers among us, this 10-day pack trip is unmissable. Covering between 170 and 200 kilometres, the ride starts in the foothills and travels west, deeper and deeper into the mountains. Although you’ll ride new trails every day, you’ll only move camp four times, which means there will be days when you can leave the packhorses behind and satisfy your need for speed with free-flying canters across valleys and mountaintops. A highlight is riding to Paradise Pass, one of the most beautiful passes in the Rockies with heavenly views across the surrounding peaks.

    10 days, 9 nights (8 riding days)

    All guests must be capable of:

    – Long, sometimes physically and mentally demanding days
    – Riding for up to 2 hours non-stop on moderate to complex mountain terrain (up/down inclines, rocky/technical trails)
    – Hiking for up to 2km on mountain terrain leading a horse up/downhill
    – Mounting from the ground
    – Riding safely and with good control at a walk, trot (rising and sitting) and canter (balanced), and riding actively and independently
    – Catching, leading, tying, grooming (including picking hooves), and tacking your horse (western saddle and bridle)
    – Working comfortably with and around horses, taking safe and situationally-aware actions.

    All guests must be comfortable with:

    – Heights
    – Camping and spending time in the backcountry, e.g. sleeping outdoors in a tent on a mat on the ground, no plumbing/electricity/showers, and no WiFi/cellular service
    – Embracing unpredictable challenges and getting out of your comfort zone in the wilderness, e.g. weather changes (rain, possibly snow) changes to itineraries, fallen trees across trails.

  • Alberta Drifter

    Another 10-day itinerary full of diversity, with two days in the Rocky Mountains; three and a half days riding point-to-point through the vast expanse of Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park and the surrounding prairie (see above description); and two days traversing the historic Cypress Hills. The trail follows in the footsteps of the First Nations, European explorers, mounted police and cowboys. You’ll come away with a deep appreciation for Alberta’s history, hospitality and scenery, not to mention your trusty steed!

    10 days, 9 nights (7.5 riding days)

    All guests must be capable of:

    – Long, sometimes physically and mentally demanding days
    – Prairie days: riding 4 to 8+ hours per day, with long trots and canters.
    – Mountain days: riding for up to 2 hours non-stop on moderate to complex mountain terrain (up/down inclines, rocky/technical trails)
    – Hiking for up to 2km on mountain terrain leading a horse up/downhill
    – Mounting from the ground
    – Riding safely and with full control at a walk, trot (rising and sitting) and canter (balanced). Full control of the horse at all gaits is required.
    – Ride actively, independently and alert to possible hazards
    – Catching, leading, tying, grooming (including picking hooves), and tacking your horse (western saddle and bridle)
    – Working comfortably with and around horses, taking safe and situationally-aware actions.

    All guests must be comfortable with:

    – Embracing unpredictable challenges and getting out of your comfort zone in the wilderness, e.g. weather changes (rain, possibly snow) changes to itineraries, fallen trees across trails.

  • Fall Spectacular

    The only ride where every night is spent in the cosy comfort of ‘The Barn’, this week-long itinerary embraces the ethereal beauty of the fall season. Golden forests of aspen, fresh air, crisp, clear skies and a dusting of snow on the mountains – what more could you want? With five full days in the saddle, you’ll have ample time to traverse the constantly changing scenery within a day’s ride of the ranch. And on day five, you’ll trailer the horses further into the mountains for a thrilling ride in the Upper Elbow Valley, in the shadows of magnificent snowy peaks, with the icy water of the Elbow tumbling beside the trail.

    7 days, 6 nights (5 riding days)

    All guests must be capable of:

    – Long, sometimes physically and mentally demanding days
    – Riding for up to 2 hours non-stop on moderate to complex mountain terrain (up/down inclines, rocky/technical trails)

  • Both Sides of the Great Divide

    If you want to explore the mountains of Alberta AND British Columbia but you’ve only got time for one riding holiday, here’s your answer: an eight-day vacation with three days’ riding in each province! 

    First up, you’ll be accommodated in ‘The Barn’ while you ride through the wilderness surrounding your hosts’ ranch in the Rockies. You’ll see the ‘best of the best’ in terms of scenery. 

    Then you’ll load the horses onto the trailer for a stunningly scenic drive through Banff and Kootenay National Parks to Nipika Mountain Resort in BC. Here you’ll spend two nights in beautifully situated log cabins while exploring the mountain-lined, densely forested Kootenay River Valley. Finally, you’ll travel back to the Rockies, arriving in time for a hearty dinner on day 7 and a good sleep before you head home in the morning.

    Bonus: this itinerary runs in the fall, so you’ll see those beautiful aspen forests in their full golden splendour!

Rocky Mountains Ride, Canada, Globetrotting Horse Riding Holidays

Margie Baldock

‘This the most personal and out-of-this-world horse adventure possible. This ride has it all – the glitz, the glamour and it also delivers the goods. Firstly, we rode Mustangs, and wow, are they just sensational- the most comfortable steads I’ve encountered. My Mustang, Castro, was so sensitive that I merely had to hold the thought of a direction, and he was there. Just a superstar horse! Our wrangler,  with more personality and love for the journey you will not find. The host’s love for their horses and the country and the experience they provide their guests could not be more self-evident. They work tirelessly to ensure no detail is left to chance. Total respect for this humble pair – they are a blessing to the horse world.’

Kiri Carew

‘I was incredibly fortunate to be part of a one-of-a-kind experience, witnessing Alberta’s Fall Spectacular. The magnificent horses, guided by knowledgeable and skilled professionals, made for an unforgettable adventure. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful, and our shared dinner was an absolute blast! The beautiful sights, captivating stories, and stunning horses that carried us left an indelible impression on my heart. This unique experience, which was like eye candy on steroids, will forever be a cherished memory that I will hold for the rest of my life. Even though the horses mostly walked, the ride was slow and serene, with the occasional trot adding to the excitement. I fell in love with one particular horse, Q, who I hear is a global favourite!’

Catherine Dimaline

‘This was my first ever solo trip due to personal circumstances.  I hovered over the computer thinking it’s always been a dream, do I? Let me say, I am so pleased I hit that ‘yes’ button! The team at Globetrotting were super professional and helpful, and the riding experience was simply just WOW. It exceeded all my expectations. A lovely family business that made us very welcome, the horses were matched perfectly, and the countryside was just breathtaking. We enjoyed good food and chats over a campfire until we retired to our tents. We were in great hands with Robert and Jackie and thank them enormously for a fantastic time. Would I recommend this experience? Hell yes!’
