Explore the timeless beauty of Grasslands National Park by horseback. Horseback riding is a traditional form of recreation and is considered one of the best ways to enjoy the rustic nature of this prairie landscape. From pre-contact times to present-day ranching, horses have been an integral part of the land. Used here for centuries first by the Aboriginals for hunting and trading purposes and then later on by the larger ranches such as the “76”, Turkey Track and T Bar Down ranches. Discover cultural artifacts such as remnant tipi rings, diamond willow corrals and abandoned homesteads.

Those with their own horses are free to explore Grasslands National Park at their own convenience. The park is open year round.

If you do not have your own horse and equipment, contact either Visitor Centre to be put in touch with a local outfitter in the area for your choice of riding experience, or join their Sunset Horseback Adventure or Cattle Trails and Cowboy Tales interpretive programs.
