Beautiful horse.  Beautiful scenery.

Horse riding in Jasper.

I had to drive 4 to 5 hours to get to Jasper. I was going to go horse riding all day in the mountains once I got there. It was just me and the guide and once I got to the ranch I was given this beautiful horse to ride. It was one of the prettiest horses I’d ever seen. The guide also had a hairy border collie with him and the dog trotted along side the horses as we went along the trail. The guide was ahead of me and my horse had to follow him. Sometimes I had to gently kick the horse because he kept falling behind. The guide was forever bending branches out the way so they wouldn’t smack me in the face. The trees where very thick and the grass extremely tall as we got deeper into the wilderness. My horse was getting bothered by flies and when I turned and looked I was shocked to find the amount of mosquitos that had landed on him.

The horses had to climb up the small mountain. I basically clung on for dear life but it was worth it when we finally got up top. Both me and my guide had lunch up the mountain. I could tell my horse was tired as it was snorting and panting away. I played with his dog for a little while and we just sat, relaxed and looked at the amazing mountains!

Getting down was a little harder I remember. We couldn’t ride the horses down the mountain, something to do with their shoulders and it was too dangerous. My guide lead the way and I tripped and stumbled down but managed not to completely fall. I did think if I were to completely fall the horse would land on top of me…. I was happy when we finally got back onto some flat land.

As we headed back after a busy day the guide owned other horses in the area and they wondered around freely with bells on them. I remember the free running horses followed as we rode back to the ranch. All you could hear was snorting horses and clanking of bells. Then a car came down the narrow line. My horse didn’t like this car and began to freak out. The driver then switched off the engine and we passed with all those horses no problem. After a point the guide and I left all those other ones behind as they could only go up to a certain point. There was a lot of jumping on and off the horse. My legs were getting tired so my guide had to give me a leg up a fair few times.

I took lots of pictures during this trip and I think my horse was very happy to go back to his paddock and eat grass. I’d go again in a second it was amazing! I stayed in a bed and breakfast near the ranch for two nights after that I drove back to Edmonton with a huge smile on my face. But not before I said goodbye to the dog and horses.
