Cowboy & Western

Our history is filled with stories of characters and cowboys – the people who with perseverance and determination pioneered the settlement of a wild western frontier. Visitors who stay at a guest or working ranch can take part in a real cattle drive or simply ride horseback on the prairies or in the foothills of the magnificent Canadian Rockies. Catch a glimpse of the Wild West that is still at the heart of every Alberta rodeo, large or small.
