The trail ride was very nice. Good trail horses. The only issue is that we booked a full day ride & were told the morning of that the horses were not available. We had traveled across the country. There was no explanations, apologies or attempts to make this right in my opinion.

Mary led us on a 5 hour trail ride through hill and dale, along the river and through meadows and forests. Scenic and varied landscapes with some wonderful lookouts to the mountains and to Brule Lake. Wonderful horses and Mary was a wealth of information on local history. Enjoyed every minute of this ride!!

Amazing, Mary and staff were brilliant and was very experienced and kept everyone happy and calm. The views were breath taking and the horses were so patient and calm with everyone. The trails were amazingingly narrow but the horses ability to manoeuvre them was ingredible. My horse Spice was beautiful and very sensitive to voice commands which was lovely. Hubby... More

We had a 1.5 hour mountain loop ride with Mary on a Sunday morning. We're both novices, and Mary was a calm steady guide throughout. We were staying at Old Entrance and so had seen how well cared for these horses are, and really it shows in they're gentle easy demeanor on the trail. Mary was a very giving guide,... More

This is one of the best family-friendly trail rides you might find. Mary & staff at Old Entrance are very experienced and professional. Rates are reasonable. We pre-booked. Mary asked us about our riding experience & took down our weights and heights; 2 adults, 3 kids under 12. When we arrived for our morning ride, the horses were already saddled... More

I have been riding since I was 8. The location and the ride was a dream come true; it truly knocked an item off my bucket list. The beauty of the surroundings was topped only by the manners and ability of the horses: really excellent. I can't say enough about the experience, and I actually am congratulating myself and my...

My family visited Alberta for the first time in August 2013 and one of our planned adventures was to go horseback riding. We visited Old Entrance based on the Trip Advisor reviews and met Mary Luger who allowed us to join a trail ride that was just getting ready to depart. I would suggest that you call ahead so that...

I've been riding since I was 9 years old (in my 30s now) and my boyfriend has never ridden a horse before. Somehow I persuaded him that I wanted us to go trail riding :) So we drove to the Old Entrance cabins on a whim to ask if there were any rides available and we went out on a... More
