Alberta Backcountry Equestrian One-Day Trail Guide by Pam Asheton Everything you need to know to explore the backcountry on horseback is in the Alberta Backcountry Equestrian One-Day Trail Guide. Jam-packed with interpretive notes on wildlife, plants, geology, local history and even horse language, this book tells you where to go, how to get there and what to do to have a successful one-day ride.

Every trail, trailhead and campground has been personally researched (and photographed) from an equestrian's point of view, with a focus on safety. In addition to detailed trail information and maps, there are also tips from a formidable array of experts, mountain men par excellence and seasoned outfitters with years of experience. Whether you're a novice or an experienced rider, this intriguing book-updated following recent flooding-is for you.

Pam Asheton, a former riding instructor with the British Horse Society, lives on a ranch outside Cochrane, Alberta. She is a regular trail rider and a backcountry aficionado. Her writing has appeared in Alberta Country, Canadian Cowboy Country, Western Horseman and the Cochrane Eagle.
