Cana­dian Rock­ies Re­port

Trail Rider - - AROUND THE CAMPFIRE -

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.

If you’re look­ing for a great horsere­lated va­ca­tion this sum­mer, check out this out­fit­ter. Jeanne Barsanti Watkinsville, Ge­or­gia

One reader of The Trail Rider highly rec­om­mends a rid­ing va­ca­tion with the Trail Rid­ers of the Cana­dian Rock­ies. Read on for her re­port.
