Meet Your Host for the Banff Pack & Lodge Trips


What’s your travel philosophy?
Visiting Banff National Park is a beautiful experience.  But it’s even better from the back of a good horse.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Guests may join us from around the world but spending even a day on horseback in these mountains creates a sense of camaraderie that seems to be a rare experience today.  These mountains and horses have a way of touching a person, reminding them to stop and smell the roses every once in a while.  

What’s the most challenging part of your work?
Maintaining a professional balance between enjoyment and getting the job done.

What is most surprising to travelers who visit Banff National Park?
Often guests are speechless, leaving here with an experience above and beyond what they expected, and amazed at how well our horses handle this truly mountainous terrain.

Where’s your favorite place to ride? 
Any of the high country, up above the tree line where you can see for miles.

What’s so special about Alberta?
Alberta is famous for its western culture, not only in the ranching areas but for its long history of mountain travel by horseback.
