Hike the trails that wind through the trees and maybe get a chance to visit with our horses in the back woods. Wander out at sunrise or sunset to observe the wild elk or deer that may be crossing the hay fields on the south side of the farm.  Or leave the farm to head west and photograph the World Famous Alberta Wild Horses near the Ya Ha Tinda, a little piece of heaven hidden away on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. Most of our guests find it hard to leave the peacefulness of the property, but below is a list of things to do in the area if you find yourself adventurous! 


For the horseback riders of the world.  We are an idealistic staging area for your hour and a half drive to ride your horse in the fantastic western Rocky Mountains of the only federally owned and operated horse ranch, the YaHaTinda Ranch.  This ranch is separated from the east boundary of Banff National Park by a narrow corridor of land.  The Ranch is presently being used by the Canada Parks Services to winter their horses as well as a staging area for warden patrol trips into Banff National Park.  It is also a winter habitat for elk which migrate from the Park.

For the photographers of the world.  A short drive to view and photograph the Alberta Wild Horses located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.  The University of Saskatoon Research Centre has proven that the DNA markers in these wild horses indicate 57 international breeds!  This makes these elusive horses unique and well worth the trip to watch and photograph these horses.  Pure Beauty! 
General location maps can be provided.
