Yellowstone Park Wildlife Guide

Ride a Horse

No other activity fulfills the Western dream for families visiting this region like a horseback ride.

Wyoming, Montana and Idaho are home to real working cowboys, who earn their living by ranching or wrangling.

Many companies in the region offer the opportunity to ride.

Yellowstone National Park Horseback Rides features small groups, amazing scenery and real Montana cowboys leading the way. All rides depart from a private ranch that borders Yellowstone Park.

Grand Teton Lodge Company offers guided horseback rides in Grand Teton National Park. Breakfast, dinner and wagon rides are available.

Ride for an hour or all day on a horseback trips in the spectacular mountains and valleys just east of Yellowstone with the Lodges of East Yellowstone. Call 307- 587-9595.

Let the professional wranglers at 320 Guest Ranch show you why riding is a way of life in Montana. These wranglers cover 2,000 trail miles each year, and take care of trail maintenance all summer long, so you know you’re in the hands of experts. Make reservations for full day (with lunch), half-day or two hour rides.

Laramie offers horseback riding, chuck wagon cook-outs, wagon rides and cattle drives. If you’re looking for the experience of the West, look to Laramie.

  1. Hello,

    I would like to know if it is possible to rent horses to go for a long trip (one month or more) with friends alone.
    It’s for doing a horseback riding but without guide. I don’t want an organised horseback riding.
    I am a french horseback riding guide myself and I would like to organise a horseback riding in Yellowstone park.

    Could you give me more information for my project ?

    Thanks a lot,

    Emilie Durand
