This year our trip will take you through some of the most scenic mountain countryside nestled close to the base of the majestic Livingstone Mountain range in southwestern Alberta. Step back into the pages of time and experience a taste of the "Old West" as we ride the open ranges, drive cattle, indulge in down home country cooking and tell yarns and sing songs around the campfire. You will marvel at the breath-taking scenery, serenity of nature and the comradeship of fellow horsemen. We'll create an adventure you'll remember forever.

"We had a lovely time! Enjoyed every minute. It was so energizing and refreshing to get a new perspective on this part of the world. I really appreciated learning all (or some) of the ins and outs of living here and caring for the environment. I really enjoyed the visiting and storytelling too. We'll be back and we're looking forward to telling our friends and families about your place."
