While in Montana a trail ride is a must do activity!
Participate in Montana’s cowboy heritage with one of our horseback trail ride options. From beginners to experienced riders everyone will have a great time on our trail rides. We offer a two-hour ride for those who want a taste of riding, a four-hour ride with creek side lunch for a bit more of a taste of life in the saddle, and a Continental Divide ride for those seeking an all -day adventure. Our rides are with well broke and trained stock. We use both horses and mules. An introduction to horseback skills and safety briefing happens prior to each ride. Helmets are available for anyone, but not required.
2 Hour Ride (Great for First Timer or Less Experienced Riders)
Our two-hour ride ascends from the barn toward the Highland Mountains and crosses a variety of terrain. Your guide can point out mountains, flowers, and possibly wildlife as you enjoy some fresh mountain air. About halfway through the ride your guide will stop and take your picture with the beautiful Highland Mountains as the backdrop.
$58.00 per person
4 Hour Lunch Ride (The Perfect In Between)
From the barn you will hit the trail and head into the Highland Mountain Range, dipping down into a valley next to a bubbling creek for lunch along the way. About an hour into the ride your guide will stop and take your picture with the beautiful Highland Mountains as the backdrop.
**Please note: This ride requires that you get off and back on your horse at the lunch location.
$110.00 per person
Continental Divide Ride (Saddle Up for an All-Day Adventure!)
This 6-7 hour long ride adventure ride entails hauling the horses to the top of the Continental Divide then riding along the Divide and back to the barn. Along the way you will stop for lunch next to a creek. On a clear day you can see for miles.
$160.00 per person – minimum of 3 riders
Mountain Lake Ride
Want something different from the usual trail ride? We offer all day rides to several mountain lake.
For these trips we leave from the barn in a vehicle with horses in the trailer, it is about an hour and half drive to the trailhead. From there we will ride about 5 miles into the Tobacco Root Mountains arriving at the Lost Cabin Lake around noon. Once here feel free to do some hiking, eat lunch, stretch your legs, and give the horses a rest. The view is beautiful and well worth it, but know the weather is unpredictable because these lakes are located at about 9000 feet in elevation.
This is a long day in the saddle, but the pictures alone make it worth your while. You would return to the barn around supper time and are more than welcome to stay for supper. Dinners are available $20.00 per person. These rides are more time intensive so there is a minimum notice of 3 days prior.
$250.00 to $350.00 per person – 2 person minimum
