Did you know you can book a guided horse tour in the gorgeous mighty peace country?
Horse Trekking Adventures (based out of the Clear Hills County) horses are well-trained, and the owners (Harvey and Laureen) are the sweetest cowboys around. Horse Trekking Adventures offer many different options for beginners and families, ranging from a few hours to a few days. You’ll learn cool facts about wildlife, plants, trees and life in the backcountry and everything is taken care of when you book an adventure with them. Rumour has it that Harvey makes the best ‘cowboy coffee’ in the country; we suggest you come and try it for yourself!
