When in Banff, if you get a chance, take in the Horseback BBQ. On our ride, we were guided by the nicest cowgirls. They were able to answer questions about the names of mountains, and types of wildlife we may possibly see.

I would suggest the Bow Valley Loop ride, you will have no problem with heights, the trail does not go close to any edges etc.

All our rides are at a walking pace. The same as all outfitters in the National Park.
