Barbecue?

This barbecue lunch was eaten at tables although it was a beautiful day and the surroundings were beautiful. It would have been much better outside - on the grass if necessary.

We went there in end september and did a 1 hour guided horseback ride, and it was great. The scenery was very nice, and we couldn't hear any noise...everything was so relaxed. The guide was very friendly and helped us alot. I definitely recommend it.

Thanks again for another wonderful ride! I came home from living in the UK for two years and the first thing my grand niece said was she wanted to go ride at "the same place we went before", as her 12th birthday present. Her and her sister were all smiles from start to finish. It's always a welcome to go... More

We booked last minute, and headed out on the 2-hour Ridgeline ride. They were very accommodating. We were part of an 8 rider group. A quick waiver, no helmets, trail ride on time, very well kept grounds and facilities - all positives for me. About 90% is through the forest, but a great view of Mount Kidd 15 minutes into... More

This review is limited because it was only the location for dinner for this reviewer, i.e. did not stay there and, therefore, cannot comment on the activities and amenities. On the whole, my experience was a little on the hoky side - kind of what you would expect a dude ranch to be, with guitar music and singing (which wasn't... More

one of these faux authentic experiences that just rip you off. One guide to six riders. Tracks small, at times really slippy and bumpy for the horses. Sad buffalo in tiny enclosure. Guides shouting at the horses if they didn't "behave" (Shay I am naming you) Completely inexperienced people allowed and hats not compulsory - illegal in the UK. A... More

Booked the 1 hour horseback trail ride. I thought the tour would have been more out in the open rather than an slight uphill climb through trees. So I was disappointed we didn't get to see anything. Sorry there were a couple of buffalo in an enclosure and we did spot a deer (this was the highlight). My daughter was... More

We visited the ranch as a group and enjoyed horse riding, a wagon ride, a barbecue and entertainment. The venue is very well presented and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The staff are friendly and greeted you the moment you stepped in the restaurant. It is located near the Kananaskis Village. The food was great.. i tried the bison burger. We had a short tour of the place after meal and saw a horse stable located in the back side of the restaurant. I heard there is an elk farm... More
