During my research on riding in Alberta in preparation for an upcoming Equitrekking film shoot, I was fortunate to be able to speak with Pam Asheton, author of "Alberta Backcountry Equestrian One-Day Trail Guide" and a former British Horse Society certified teacher and rider with over 30 years experience.
I just posted my interview with Pam here, Backcountry Riding in Alberta. It has some helpful suggestions for Alberta trails and backcountry safety tips.
