For horseback riding, you'll want riding boots if at all possible. Riding boots have a slightly raised heel, which helps prevent your foot from slipping in the stirrup and possibly getting caught.

If you invest in a good pair of riding boots, they can actually double as hiking books. An excellent brand is Ariat. They are not cheap, but they are well worth the price. I bought a pair of Ariats for a dude ranch vacation several years ago. They were so comfortable that I wore them for everything--hiking, BBQs, watching the rodeo, and even our day trip to Yellowstone.

I read some comments on dressing for a cruise in September that I thought might help you if you have not seen it.
"Late September in Alaska, by Gayla, posted 04-08-03.

Hope that helps you.

I've taken that tour. They have a good string of horses. The site can be very muddy and it can rain. The person that advised you on BOOTS was right on. A packable rain slicker would be good too. Another tip: don't lie about your abiltiy to ride. These are not nose to tail Alpo kind of horses, if you are a novice say so.
Have a great ride!

even though it sounds fun and a great way to see the sites, i have decided not to do the horseback riding tour. i am going to meet up with others and do something else in skagway. so that is not on my list of things to do any more.

thanks to all for the great advice on horseback riding. dusty
