4 Day Horseback Adventure


Join us for a horseback adventure, saddle up and explore the Alberta Rockies with Anchor D! We’ll take you by horseback into our Mountain Wilderness Camp, it is a beautiful horseback ride into this camp, offering canvas outfitter tents with cots and foam mattresses for guests, a bathroom tent and a large kitchen and dining tent.

Anchor D supplies all meals, starting with lunch on the first day, and ending with lunch on the last day. We supply everything for your trip but your sleeping bag and personal gear. Sleeping bag rentals are available.

Our Mountain Wilderness Camp trips leave the ranch at 10 a.m. Monday mornings (please check dates below) from the first of June to the middle of September. We truck the horses up to the trailhead, load the covered wagon, get everyone on their horses, and hit the trail for the ride through the mountains to our Mountain Wilderness Camp for your horseback adventure.

Heading out in a different direction every day, there are several mountain lakes to ride to that are stocked with cutthroat trout; we can scout out a high mountain pass, riding up to 8500′ elevation, where the Continental Divide opens up in front of you; we can explore Burns Canyon and climb up beside Burns Falls, which is the highest waterfalls in Kananaskis Country. In this area, four different mountain ranges meet – there is no end to the possibilities and horseback adventure!

Riding through rivers, valleys, canyons and passes, we travel through some incredibly rugged country where you will gain a new respect for your sure-footed mountain horse.

These horseback adventures will arrive back at the trailhead between 4 and 5 p.m. (that’s “cowboy time”) on Thursday afternoon. Please note that while we highly recommend helmets we do not supply them, so if you wish to wear one or have your child wear one, you will need to bring it with you.

Back to Horseback Adventures


Just thought you'd like to hear what a great time we had on our weekender. Pablo, Jen, Morgan and Darren were amazingly helpful. Clearly, customer service is a priority at Anchor D. We experienced all four seasons in one trip. How is that for service. We had a hot summer day, a spring shower, a fall lightening storm and a blizzard. Talk about extreme holidaying, it was simply another part of a great experience, makes for a good story and was a memory for our whole family to savour forever. Thanks so much for your part in providing us with an opportunity to spend time with family, enjoy a quiet time away from work and cellphones and get back in touch with what is really important. We had a GREAT time. After last year, we didn't think it could get any better but it really was. Thanks again! Until next time....
