The ranch offers horse riding to guests of 6 and over, beginning with basic horsemanship and control skills, kids may join parents on the easier rides.
Riding takes place in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The terrain around the ranch is mountainous so the opportunity for faster riding may be limited by the factor. They have a herd of well-trained horses and experienced wranglers who lead the rides with enjoyment, education and safety in mind.
Rides are limited to a few riders per wrangler so the wranglers are able to provide more specialized attention telling you about the area and what you are seeing along the ride. The wranglers will spend time with guests on your first full day assessing your abilities and matching you with the best horse and riding experiences for their ability level.
Some guests will have had some previous riding experience, but it is not a necessity
Please note, to ensure horse and rider safety in mountainous terrain, there is a maximum rider weight limit of 230 pounds (16.4 stone)
