Indeed, few things say “Alberta” more than heading out on horseback in the rolling, aspen-coated foothills west of Calgary. This is idyllic cowboy country if there ever was. And, tucked into a secluded valley just 15 minutes south of Bragg Creek, bordering on Kananaskis Country, Moose Mountain Horseback Adventures is, as their website states, “One of the prettiest areas for riding in the world.” As it turns out, thanks to their Earn Your Spurs riding program, it might also be one of the best places to learn.

Scenery part of Moose Mountain adventure. There’s a chance to saddle up and go for a trail ride in scenery so breathtaking it’s been captured on film by Hollywood. Moose Mountain Horseback Adventures, located approximately 13 km south of Bragg Creek, offers trail rides in an area which such classics as Brokeback Mountain and Unforgiven were filmed. M&M Adventures offers a variety of riding experiences for all types of riders — from greenhorns to those who can comfortable sit tall in the saddle. It’s been a MacLaine family business since 1991.

“I enjoy being with people who share the same enthusiasm I have,” said Neil MacLaine, owner operator of Moose Mountain Horseback Adventures. “I also get to show them a part of the world that I am very proud of.”

The Prairies have a beauty all their own … You feel like you’re discovering something for the first time. You ride over a ridge and look down into an empty coulee, and it’s easy to imagine seeing Sitting Bull and 5,000 Sioux because it just hasn’t changed.

Seeing wildlife up close really makes the ride for me. Animals like deer or moose aren’t alarmed by horses. They just look at them and think, “There goes a giant deer with a parasite on its back.” You can get quite close.

The people who come on rides with us, you can tell this would be their dream lifestyle. They’re making their money in some other field, but they spend it by riding in the mountains. The smiles on their faces and the conversations around the fire tell you they’re envious. Frankly, I’d be jealous of me, too. —as told to Shelley Arnusch
