Experience our winter wonderland on horseback
Who says horseback riding is just for the summer? It’s not! We have several trails that are open year-round to provide you and your horse a relaxing winter ride. It’s also the season to enjoy a sleigh ride.
Before you ride out, check the trail conditions. To stay safe, always follow the trail etiquette.
Moose Mountain Horseback Adventures offers horseback experiences from 1.5 hours to multi-day packtrips in Kananaskis. They are open year-round and also offer lessons, sleigh and wagon rides.
Are you looking to explore the area on your own horse? Kananaskis has some of the best riding country in the world, accessible to the public from the trailhead staging areas listed below.
Remember, most of our trails are multi-use. Watch for hikers and wildlife.
