Canadian Rockies Report
Even though I own a mare and ride her frequently, each year, I try to gather some friends to go on a riding vacation in a different part of the world. I really appreciate The Trail Rider’s articles on such trips. A few years ago, we had a wonderful time at Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch solely due to the article in your magazine (“Land of Enchantment,” April ’14).
Last summer, we enjoyed a week with the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (as mentioned in “Canadian Backcountry Adventure,” Hot on the Trail, March ’17).
The summer we went, the featured park was Waterton Lakes National Park, the Canadian side of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. This park has several lakes; the largest is flanked on three sides by towering mountains and on the fourth by a beautiful plain. The horses were well-cared for, responsive, and mountain-wise. The trails are very wellmaintained.
