Owner description: Horseback riding for the family! Go on a half day ride near the Continental Divide, come back and eat your lunch and then for no extra charge go fishing in one of the private ponds here at the ranch. Wildlife is seen on nearly every ride and you'll love the great western atmosphere. Be sure and bring you camera!

My wife and daughter wanted to go horseback riding while we were on vacation and we found this place nearby. We were concerned our daughter would not be allowed to ride because she is only 4 years old. However, they told us the trail would be relatively flat and that she would be alright. She absolutely loved the experience. She rode right behind the ranch-hand leading the ride and talked his ear off the entire time. He did great communicating with her and teaching her tips and tricks along the way. We can't wait to go back the next time we are out that way.

The Yellowstone Horse ride was well worth the time. There was so much it is hard to know where to begin. First off, the horse ride was wonderful. The scenery was breath taking. Our guide was very friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. He made the ride interesting with local facts and interest points. The horses were gentle and easy to ride. The dinner that was provided was out of this world. Everything was made from scratch. The scones are to die for. The best part my teenagers said was that the food was all you can eat. They ate their share and more. If you are going anywhere around Yellowstone it is well worth your time to take the Yellowstone Horse ride. You won't be disappointed.

Our group of 8: 4 adults, kids age 17,16,12, and 9 did an afternoon 2 hour ride. We had a guide just for our group. The horses seemed very well cared for, and were gentle and easy to control. None of us had ridden before and we had no problems. We rode through a pretty pine wood that we shared with a herd of cows, and through pastures. I had considered a longer ride, but the 2 hour ride was perfect (actually about 75 minutes after preparation). I had also considered the dinner, but felt it was too expensive. We didn't miss it.
Read the tips on the website about clothing, and follow the website directions, not google.

The ride and the dinner were the highlight of our trip to Yellowstone. I highly recommend the ride and the dinner because it was so much fun and so educational. The guides are experienced and knowledgeable about the flora and the fauna, and we were able to see parts of island park that can only be viewed off the beaten path. The ranch itself is only a few miles off the main highway, but well worth the 10 minutes it takes to get there. I am not a horse rider, but the horses and the guides are so well trained that even I did a great job. Several young children were on the ride and they navigated the terrain like veteran riders. The horse were were gentle and the scenery was amazingly pristine and beautiful. We saw the real scenery of Island Park. The dinner was fantastic. All the food was made from scratch from the barbequed pork to the honey buttered scones. And guess what? You could eat all you wanted and go back for more. What a meal. I definitely give this ride a "Two thumbs Up!' If you miss the ride and the dinner, you miss the best part of Yellowstone and Island Park. Good eating and good riding to you all!

We went to Eagle Ridge Ranch to take the kids for a horseback ride. It was amazing ! The guide was awesome and the ride was very relaxing. The horses seemed happy and well cared for. I would certainly recommend this to anyone in the area.
