Great day in Banff

This was quiet lovely. We did the 2 hour ride and if was just the perfect length. Horses are hilarious and all have their own character but they listened well to commands. Each horse was chosen based on the riders own weight as to be mindful to the horses stature - which was nice to see. They have hand sani and clean washrooms for hand washing which was greatly appreciated. We all wore masks until we were sitting on the horses and distanced. Def coming back here. Was a wonderful experience 😊

Lack of hospitality/flexibility
Disappointed

Didn't appreciate the lack of information on the 2 1/2 hour drive from Calgary (should be 90 min) or the 1/2 hour fight through Banff to arrive late and lose our ride due to the lack of flexibility at the ranch. Last bucks that ever get spent in Banff.

Im sorry you were delayed due to traffic. This is totally out of our control and because we were sold out we unfortunately could not move your booking.
