Horseback Trail Rides Guided Adventures by Horseback

Guided Adventures by Horseback

Saddling up in Montana is an essential part of the Old West experience. And with thousands of miles of horseback riding trails to explore, there are options (and lessons) for every experience level. Our guides can take you out for a few hours on a flat creekside trail, a day-long journey into the mountains of Glacier National Park, or a multiday pack trip into wild country like the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Either way, a guided horseback riding trip allows you to experience the beauty of Western Montana’s breathtaking landscape from a traditionally western vantage point.

If you’re ready to hit the trail, here are a few of Glacier Country’s choice locales and guide services.

Discover the Yellowstone you haven’t seen yet.

The sublimity of America's first national park spills over for miles. Head north and you’ll find it in Montana’s Yellowstone Country.
