As full-time professional horse people we travelled from Australia to do the 2 day backcountry trip from Kananaskis with Brewsters. Our guide Ron was fantastic, the horses well cared for and effective and the scenery was to die for. The horses were always first to be given water at all possible stops and their welfare was always considered as a proirity. The cabins were the most basic you can imagine but then again what do you want from this type of trip? If you want to stay in a Hilton, hire a lear jet. All we can say is this was a trip of a lifetime and we will always treasure it. Thanks Ron and team. Please don't read this in conjunction with the Ranch reviews as we only did the 2 day ride.
