Beginning Horseback Riding

Montana Horseback Riding for Beginners

Even if you have never tried horseback riding, feel at ease to explore our wilderness area on a horse chosen for your riding level.  The wranglers will see that you are feeling safe and comfortable before riders leave the barn. 

Beginning instruction is given before the first meadow ride, and an opportunity to build confidence in the riding arena is offered. Novice riders of all ages come to our guest ranch and return home at the end of the week having participated in an authentic Western experience.

By the end of your stay you and your horse will be BFF’s!
