Anchor D have been offering horse back riding holidays and trail rides for over 30 years.

They escort small numbered groups into the mountains that lie to the west of the ranch.

The 4 day adventurer trips are based in their camp in the Sheep River Valley. They also offer 2 night weekend trips here.

The 7 day trips are moving trips, and teams and wagons are used to carry the camp gear and duffl. These include the Great Divide Ride which goes into the Highwood Range and is one of their most popular ride, and the Lost Trail trip for experienced riders only!

The High Mountain Wilderness Camp trips leave the ranch at 10 a.m. Monday mornings from the first of June to the middle of September. The horses are trucked up to  the horses up to the trailhead, load the covered wagon, get everyone on their horses, and hit the trail for the 12 mile ride through the mountains to our High Mountain Wilderness Camp.

Heading out in a different direction every day, there are several mountain lakes to ride to that are stocked with cutthroat trout;  riding up to 8500′ elevation, where the Continental Divide opens up in front of you; explore Burns Canyon and climb up beside Burns Falls, which is the highest waterfalls in Kananaskis Country. In this area, four different mountain ranges meet – there is no end to the possibilities and adventure!

Riding through rivers, valleys, canyons and passes,  travel through some incredibly rugged country where you will gain a new respect for your sure-footed mountain horse. During the lunch stop, you might like to try your hand at fishing do some hiking and exploring, or go to sleep in the sun!

These horseback adventures will arrive back at the trailhead between 4 and 5 p.m.  on Thurs.  Sleeping bags not supplied - available to rent locally.

Check in for your trip at 9:30 a.m. on the first day American Round-Up recommend staying nearby the night before which they can book for you.  As in our other packages,  all your meals are supplied, starting with lunch on the first day, and ending with lunch on the last day. Included are the horses, cooks, wranglers, guide, tents, cots with foam mattresses, all your meals and snacks - everything but your sleeping bag and personal gear.

The terrain covered by these rides is mountainous so you should be able to ride uphill and down with relative ease. You will ride for some distance each day so our recommendation would be that you are an Intermediate rider except for the Lost Trail Ride where Anchor D ask that you are an experienced rider due to the far more challenging terrain covered.
