Somewhere around the turn of the century, a “crusty” old HORSETHIEF, a bit down on his luck, stole three horses from Banff. A Mare, a Stallion and a Colt. While making his getaway he came through Sinclair Canyon and was heading south. A winter blizzard came up, and this fellow knew of a good hideout on a sandbar on a nearby river, just west of Radium Hot Springs. As he got to the creek he saw patches of ice and knew he would have to walk the horses across to the safety of the sandbar. He managed to get the Mare and Stallion to step into the frigid waters, but no matter how hard he tried, the Colt would not budge. This fellow was now quite cold from the water and the blizzard and decided there was only one option left. He scooped the Colt onto his shoulders and staggered into the icy creek. As he reached the middle of the creek, the current knocked him off balance and he was swept away in the icy water and drowned. Thus the Name HORSETHIEF CREEK, and the legend we’ve named our restaurant after!
