We're in Yellowstone country, but we're not in Yellowstone National
Park, but there is no fence
around Yellowstone Park! We
see and hear wolves, coyotes, and elk. We see bear, mountain

of our guides were professional cowboys in their younger
years, traveling throughout the Western United States in competition.
In fact, several of the saddles that our guests will be riding
are actually trophy saddles won by these professional cowboys! If
you were going for a hike in the mountains, what would you rather wear,
a brand new pair of boots or an old pair? Well, the same applys
to saddles; most of our saddles are older and well broke-in! We
want you to be as comfortable as possible while out on these
rides. Some of our saddles are long, some are short, some have
cushion seats, and some even have high backs. Our guides will make
every effort to put you in a saddle that best fits you!
arriving guests are taught the basics of handling a lariat,
sometimes we even have a competition roping! (a hay bale)
provide a short course in horsemanship and safety before
the riders leave the corral. The guides then choose the guest's
using factors such as size, age, and experience. The stirrups are
carefully adjusted for comfort while riding in the mountains.
traveling through the meadows, we ride among livestock. When you ride
along side of a 1700 pound bull, be prepared for an adrenalin rush! You
will have a true western ranch adventure along with the thrills of
riding in the mountains. Be sure you bring a camera!

ride in is very remote; after the first ten minutes in the saddle, more
than likely you will not see another human being until we get back!
