A western experience for the whole family! Enjoy a scenic wagon or horseback ride along the river with beautiful mountain views. Stop for a BBQ feast halfway through your ride and experience a true cowboy cookout. 

You will have a leisurely trail ride along the base of Sulphur Mountain to a western BBQ lunch/dinner. While the cook prepares your steak to order, challenge friends and family to a game of horseshoes or relax in the picnic area. Then take in the sights along the Bow River as the ride returns to Warner stables.

The Wagon is available for lunch and dinner trips while the horseback ride is only offered for the dinner trip.
