The ride and scenery were fabulous to say the least. Our guide was very professional and her knowledge of the area was very helpful!

We invite you to join us for sightseeing from a different perspective on a Yellowstone horseback ride. Your 4-legged taxi will take you to new heights and expand your horizons. Our trails on the North Fork of the Shoshone National Forest offer a variety of beautiful terrain, including sparkling river crossings, wooded forests, and breathtaking high mountain views. Never ridden before? No problem! You don’t need any previous experience. We have horses for all skill levels and our experienced wranglers are always there to give you a helping hand. (Minimum age for children on our rides is 6 years old, but we can offer a pony ride at our corral for any little buckaroo under 6.)
