Horseback Riding

Explore Northern Yellowstone with Horsetrack Outfitters

Escape the crowds on a private Yellowstone horseback ride to see incredible scenery, watch wildlife or go fishing with Horsetrack Outfitters. Also hunting trips outside the park.

Looking for a unique way to explore Yellowstone National Park? Leave your car behind and trade four tires for four hooves as you explore the breathtaking scenery of the northern region of the park via horseback. 

Based just north of Gardiner, Mont., outside of the park’s North Entrance, Horsetrack Outfitters offers half-day and full-day trail rides as well as multi-day pack trips. Owned by lifelong Montana locals Mike and Milee Dailey, Horsetrack Outfitters only offers private rides, ensuring that your adventure is customized to your group’s needs and that you get a personalized experience. There’s only a two-person minimum for a trip, so a horseback adventure is perfect for couples, families or larger groups. They can accommodate riders of all levels.

On a half or full-day ride, you’ll experience the park’s gorgeous northern half, which is home to the Lamar Valley, often likened to the Serengeti in Tanzania for its abundant wildlife. Here you’ll get away from the crowds in areas like Swan Lake Flats and Slough Creek. Your chances of seeing wildlife and getting incredible photo opportunities are high. On one ride, a black bear crossed right in front of one of the company’s trail rides. 

Interested in checking out Montana’s abundant fishing? Horsetrack Outfitters can take you on a ride to the Lamar River’s tributaries like Slough and Pebble Creek to fly fish for Yellowstone Cutthroat. Or, ride into Gardner’s Hole or other small lakes in the area to fish amongst the serenity of a Yellowstone mountain lake. On a full-day trip, enjoy a picnic lunch along the trail. They also offer mule pack-in services for drop camps.

Horsetrack Outfitters will meet you at the trailhead with your horses ready to go, so you can spend more time in the saddle exploring the incredible landscape around you.

If you’re a hunter, Horsetrack Outfitters also offers hunting pack trips in the Bridger-Teton National Forest southeast of Yellowstone.
